Gunfight At The OK Corral

Novelist Leon Uris wrote the script for this Western directed by John Sturges (The Magnificent Seven) and based on the life and times of Wyatt Earp (Burt Lancaster) and his sickly companion, Doc Holliday (Kirk Douglas). The action inevitably leads to the legendary battle between the two heroes and the villainous Clanton gang, but the film is also very much about the conflicts each man faces with women, with one another, and with their own destinies. Lancaster is terrific as the downbeat Earp, and Douglas has one of his best roles as the consumptive Holliday. The thoughtfulness of the tale is matched by Sturges's captivating way with the dramatic duel. All in all, the film appeals both as a solid action piece and as a fascinating, two-character study. --Tom Keogh

Hud

Based on a Larry McMurtry novel, this Martin Ritt film was a testament to the sex appeal of the young Paul Newman. Playing the title character--a total rotter who, by the end of the film, has double-crossed or screwed over everyone he knows, including his hard-working father and brother--Newman turns him into an intriguing antihero. Things are tough on the ranch and Hud's dad (Melvyn Douglas) needs help, but Hud is too busy looking out for number one, even as things fall apart. And guess who's going to land on his feet? Beautiful black-and-white cinematography by James Wong Howe won an Oscar, as did performances by Douglas and Patricia Neal. --Marshall Fine

Once Upon a Time in the West

The so-called spaghetti Western achieved its apotheosis in Sergio Leone's magnificently mythic (and utterly outlandish) Once upon a Time in the West. After a series of international hits starring Clint Eastwood (from A Fistful of Dollars to The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly), Leone outdid himself with this spectacular, larger-than-life, horse-operatic epic about how the West was won. (And make no mistake: this is the wide, wide West, folks--so the widescreen/letterboxed version is strongly recommended.) The unholy trinity of Italian cinema--Leone, Bernardo Bertolucci, and Dario Argento--concocted the story about a woman (Claudia Cardinale) hanging onto her land in hopes that the transcontinental railroad would reach her before a steely-eyed, black-hearted killer (Fonda) does. (The film's advertising slogan was: "There were three men in her life. One to take her ... one to love her ... and one to kill her.") Meanwhile, Leone shoots his stars' faces as if they were expansive Western landscapes, and their towering bodies as if they were looming rock formations in John Ford's Monument Valley. --Jim Emerson

4.0 out of 5 stars An Eclectic Mix 8 Mar 2009
By Bob Salter TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
This is quite an eclectic mix of movies. We have a Spaghetti Western encompassing much of that genres style, and with quite a few of its own. We have a contemporary Western with age old themes, and we have a much more traditional American Western. It is quite an unusual and imaginative mix which seems to work quite well and represents pretty good value.

"Once Upon a Time in the West"(69) directed by the one and only Sergio Leone, is in most peoples opinion the finest Italian Western ever made, many believing it to be the finest of all. I would certainly agree with the first assertion. It is far superior to the Dollar Westerns and is by far the most ambitious Italian Western ever made. It charts the progress of a railway being built in the West. Around this wide subject matter we have a great deal of double dealing and death is never far away. We have a superb cast. Charles Bronson is the stone faced Harmonica with a score to settle, and Henry Fonda appears memorably as the evil Frank. The Fonda character first appears in the film callously murdering a family. Quite a shock to Fonda fans! Jason Robards is also excellent as a bandit. The film is magnificent to look at with some spectacular scenes. The opening is hugely impressive. The characters were actually choreographed to the the wonderful Ennio Morricone music score, so it has an almost balletic feel to it. Leone spent many hours watching Westerns and his love of them shows. I dont believe it is the finest Western ever made, but for its sheer bravado it has to be in any top ten list. A classic of its type.

"Hud"(62) directed by Martin Ritt is a very different beast. It is a contemporary Western based on "Lonesome Dove" author Larry McMurtry's book "Horseman Pass By".

4.0 out of 5 stars Review 20 Feb 2011
The three films are all pretty good for their time. I would have paid a bit more to have separate cases for each film however that is a very small quibble. Excellent value for 3 films anyone who likes westerns would love these as a gift.

5.0 out of 5 stars Three great westerns 29 May 2014
Verified Purchase
Great films and all three quite different. It took a while to get used to 'Once Upon a Time in the West' (too much sweating and spitting in close up for me) but it was worth persevering with. All of the films are chauvinistic in their treatment of central female characters so those with a feminist eye should look away but if you can get past that the films are thought-provoking, entertaining and a must-have for a broad movie collection, even if you don't like westerns. The DVD quality was good.
