Firstly, if you are looking at this boxset then I imagine you are already a John Wayne Fan; you will not be disappointed by the set, it's superb.... BUT!

A very brief review of the contents:
The DVD transfers are very good indeed and the special editions included (Mclintock! and Hondo) are un-edited; earlier releases of Mclintock had a huge 20 mins of footage cut unbelievably. El Dorado is also uncut, including in this release is the infamous James Caan flowerpot, Chinese impression which has been missing from some previous releases. This is a must have boxset for all John Wayne fans or lovers of classic Hollywood films when life was simpler and less cynical.

The problem:
The physical slip case is so flimsy that mine arrived crushed like a pancake, not helped by the fact Amazon sent it in a Jiffy bag rather than a box! Secondly the actual design of the foldout inner sleeve means the DVDs are tucked into D cuts in the card rather than on sprockets so they slip out if the box is turned upside down. Inevitably the box being upside down happens in the post resulting in all the DVD coming loose and rattling around in the box. Some of the DVDs had slipped around so much in transit that the scratches on them rendered the DVDs unplayable which is a huge disappointment. I have reluctantly returned the box set and would advise buying one in person if at all possible to ensure everything is as should be.

Format: DVD
The films in chronological order are as follows:-

1 "Hondo"(53) directed by John Farrow. A very fine western, with Wayne as an Indian scout in conflict with the Apache. A film I have already reviewed in detail.
2) "Island in the Sky"(53) directed by William Wellman. Wayne plays a chief pilot of a plane that ditches in the wild wastes of Labrador during WW11. A very decent and underrated aviation film. One of the big mans lesser known films. Another film I have reviewed in more depth.
3) "The High and the Mighty"(54) directed by William Wellman. Wayne plays a co-pilot haunted by his past. A film that was commercially successful and was the "Airport" of the fifties. Also starred Robert Stack and Clair Trevor
4) "Hatari"(62)directed Howard Hawks. Spills and thrills galore as Wayne and friends capture big game in Africa for zoos. A film I have already reviewed.
5) "The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance"(62) directed by John Ford. A superb elegiac western by the master Ford. Also stars James Stewart and a very bad Lee Marvin.
6) "Donovan's Reef"(63) directed John Ford. Wayne and Lee Marvin have rumbustious fun in the South sea's.
7) "McLintock"(63) directed by Andrew V McLaglen. Wayne has fun with old sparring partner Maureen O'Hara in this comedy western. Good light hearted fun and a film I have already reviewed in detail.
8) "In Harm's Way"(65) directed by Otto Preminger. Second World War naval drama also starring Kirk Douglas and Pat Neal. A rather disappointing big budget picture.
9) "The Son's of Katie Elder"(65) directed by Henry Hathaway. A good solid western from the veteran Hathaway. Wayne's first outing after his bout with cancer. Also starred Dean Martin.
10) "El Dorado"(67) directed by Howard Hawks.

Wonderful collection of excellent John Wayne movies. The box itself is a offence to every movie collector. Absolutely poor Digipak style, quickly starting to fall apart. Uncomfortable to choose single DVD's as you have to open up the whole Digipak choosing a DVD. This is connection with the poor quality is not a really good combination. The way the DVD's are stored in the Digipak scratches are unavoidable, one meanwhile stopped playing. Rubbish, no good choice for a DVD collector looking for a good quality box.

I received my 2d John Wayne Ultimate Collection box set today, the first being crushed in shipment. And just like the first one, all the discs were loose and fell out but at least this time none were scratched. Shame on Paramount for being so cheap as to package John Wayne's movies in such a crappy manner. The movies themselves are all FIVE star, the packaging a big ZERO. Glen Collier

Being a family of avid John Wayne fans I jumped at the chance of buying this set from Amazon for my husband. I had seen it in the shops at a higher price but as always Amazon beat them all. My husband can now get rid of the taped and purchased videos. CDs take up so much less room and where else can you watch your favourite 'Duke' films without someone walking in front of the screen blocking out the 'best bits'.

Item came really well packaged so the content box did not even have a slight 'dent'.

Amazon does it again.

Decided to take a chance on this set.
At this price for so many films it seemed too good to be true!
It is..
As other reviews have commented the packaging is truly appalling, they would be safer delivered in a brown paper bag.
Most of the films have a fault, the annoying thing is you only find out that they wont play when you get half way through the film!
Very annoying.
Don't waste your money, better to build up a collection from individual discs that are better quality.
