Synopsis

In Gunfight at the O.K. Corral, a straight-laced sheriff and his gambler friend take on the evil Clanton gang, culminating in what is quite possibly the most famous showdown in the history of the genre. Once Upon a Time in the West tells the story of a power-hungry railroad company owner who hires a gunfighter to kill anyone who stands in the way of his railroad's construction. After a land owner falls foul of the gunman, his widow hires two goons of her own to protect her and exact revenge. In the Academy Award-winning True Grit, crotchety U.S. Marshal Rooster Cogburn would rather stay at home than chase criminals. He heeds the call, though, when 14-year-old Mattie Ross calls on him to avenge her father's death at the hands of a man who has escaped into Indian territory. The pair are accompanied on their journey by a Texas ranger who has his own motives to serve. In The Sons of Kate Elder, three wandering sons return home to attend the funeral of their mother who has been murdered. The brothers then set their sights on the man responsible for her death, as well as for the death of their father six months prior. However, getting revenge won't be easy because the culprit--who has also gained possession of the family's ranch--will stop at nothing to deter them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic films, great value 16 Oct 2010
This box set is great value, as it contains four excellent Westerns. As usual with box sets the films are a mix of true classic and slightly lesser films but all of these films are worth your while.

One of the major plus points in the set is that it includes the two-disc set of Once Upon a Time in the West. This happens to be my all-time favourite Western and the dvd treatment is excellent featuring an audio commentary with Sergio Leone expert Christopher Frayling as well as others including John Milius, John Carpenter and Sheldon Hall. This commentary is well worth the time if you are into the film as Frayling explains many of the references to classic Westerns which Leone inserted. So, if your knowledge of early westerns is as patchy as mine, then this feature will prove useful.

True Grit is another good film. It is obviously best known as the film for which 'The Duke' - John Wayne won his Oscar. His performance is memorable as the drunken, violent 'Rooster' Cogburn. Kim Darby's performance as the teenage Mattie Ross is also memorable. Unfortunately, Glen Campbell as La Boeuf isn't so good. Still, a fine Western, and I'm also looking forward to the Coen Brothers' remake coming this year.

The Sons of Katie Elder is a somewhat lesser John Wayne film, but no less entertaining. The film is exciting and entertaining with a fine Elmer Bernstein score which is reminiscent of his classic work on The Magnificent Seven.

The Gunfight at the OK Corral is an entertaining, fanciful retelling of the classic Wyatt Earp/Doc Holliday story. Burt Lancaster and Kirk Douglas are first class leads and the film is directed by John Sturges who went on to make The Magnificent Seven and The Great Escape.

When I bought this the list price was just 5. You couldn't ask for better value for money, especially considering that Once Upon a Time in the West is the two disc version!

First of all Amazon might want to correct that this box contains 5 discs. Once upon time in the west is Special edition.

You have here 4 classics two by Henry Hathaway, one by Sergio Leone and one by John Sturges (The Great Escape). Amazing value, not to be missed by any western lover.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classical Westerns 12 May 2010
Some may seem a little creaky but they remain true classics with all the Hollywood great stars. An excellent addition to any Western collection for enthusiasts of the genre.

5.0 out of 5 stars TRUE CLASSICS 2 Feb 2012
Verified Purchase
All these films are classics. True Grit is far better, than the remake (yawn). The rest of the films rely on ACTORS characters and not on special effects & swearing, like 2 days tripe films....BUY IT....
