4.0 out of 5 stars Triple hit
For anyone of a middle age these films seem to be a good example of the kind of classics we would watch on a Sunday afternoon before TV sport took over. At the price offered by Amazon this triple collection is a great bargain. I was particularly interested to confirm or refute the claim that Liberty Valance was the only man ever to be shot in the back by John Wayne (you...

This review is from: True Grit/The Sons Of Katie Elder/Man Who Shot Liberty Valance [DVD] (DVD)
For anyone of a middle age these films seem to be a good example of the kind of classics we would watch on a Sunday afternoon before TV sport took over. At the price offered by Amazon this triple collection is a great bargain. I was particularly interested to confirm or refute the claim that Liberty Valance was the only man ever to be shot in the back by John Wayne (you will have to watch the film to find out the answer).If you are a fan of westerns then you may well have these films in your collection already but if not you are advised to get this set quickly and to start educating your children about good, wholesome films with only a few quick (but totally necessary) killings!

5.0 out of 5 stars Three True Classics., 17 Jan. 2009
This review is from: True Grit/The Sons Of Katie Elder/Man Who Shot Liberty Valance [DVD] (DVD)
This is a great collection of John Wayne westerns. There are some fine supporting performances on show with the likes of James Stewart and Lee Marvin in the dramatic 'The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance', Dean Martin and George Kennedy in the comedy/drama 'The Sons of Katie Elder' and Glen Campbell and General Sterling Price in the action packed 'True Grit' (for more detail see my individual reviews).

The Duke is on top form in all three movies showing us just why he is an icon of the silver screen. It's a real western treasure box that won't disappoint. Adios.

3 great films in one case. Nothing fancy here. No extras, just the films. I guess we get spoilt with all the extras provided on DVD's these days! The films themselves are brilliant, no doubting that, and the price makes this a quality bargain purchase.

Special mention for 'The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance'... John Wayne, James Stewart and Lee Marvin all on top, top form.

This review is from: True Grit/The Sons Of Katie Elder/Man Who Shot Liberty Valance [DVD] (DVD)
This 3 DVD boxset contains some of the greatest westerns John Wayne ever made and
it includes his Oscar winning performance as Rooster Cogburn in True Grit .
In movies ranging from 1962 - 1969 they are a must for collectors of this genre.
In 1962s The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance , Wayne plays a rugged rancher who shares the love interest ( Vera Miles ) with bungling lawyer played to perfection
by James Stewart , it also stars Lee Marvin as Liberty Valance and he is mean .
In 1965s The Sons of Katie Elder , Wayne plays one of four brothers who come home for their mothers funeral and also to find out who murdered their father.
This actioner also stars Dean Martin , Earl Holliman and Michael Anderson Jnr.
In 1969s True Grit , Wayne gives an Oscar winning performance as one eyed whisky
guzzling Deputy Marshall Ruben ' Rooster ' Cogburn who is hired by a young girl to find the man who murdered her father and stole the family savings . This class
western also stars Glen Campbell , Kim Darby , Robert Duvall and Strother Martin.

This review is from: True Grit/The Sons Of Katie Elder/Man Who Shot Liberty Valance [DVD] (DVD)
Having seen the 2010 remake of True Grit, I wanted to see the original with John Wayne. This package offered me the original, with two other classic Wayne wetserns effectively thrown in for free. Print fine, but soundtrack had very occasional stutter and some of the music became very confused with the original mono soundtrack. Nevertheless, cannot complain at this price.

you don't get good westerns today, this generation wants special effects rather than superb acting. all these movies have great acting and especially this True Grit is far superior to the remake, that i didn't rate much. timeless westerns at a fantastic price.
