Wondrerful vale for money
on 20 July 2012
Great value at £3.95, these westerns (which are region free, and not region 1 as per the listing, come from the days before PC, when you knew exactly where you stood: white hat = good guy, black hat = bad guy and the Red Indians (not Native Americans) where always the villains (Remember the Little Big Horn!!!) Watch "Buffalo Stampede" for a truly memorable example of that, never mind that in a few short years, the Buffalo Hunters wiped out the buffalo and brought the Indians to the brink of starvation.
Shot in magnificent monochrome, with wooden actors and women with 1920s hairstyles and clothing, truly great stuff. A nostalgic trip down Memory Lane. (Indeed, this one goes back to a time before even my memory). The rest of the films are "Randolph Scott" - always the good guy, always wins in the end and always finishes with a kiss for the leading lady.
If, like my wife and me, you like a good old-fashioned western, shot in bright sunshine and not (as with so many modern films) in the rain, at night, Randolph Scott's films are always worth watching. Excellent value for money and, although the listing says Region 1, these DVDs are region free (but make sure that your player will play NTSC, the American standard - the UK is PAL. Only my Panasonic won't play them, all my other machines being universal).
