Product Description

This Father’s Day metal gift box set features iconic actor John Wayne in 3 of his greatest Westerns: Stagecoach, Rio Grande and Fort Apache.

Stagecoach:
One of the all-time classic Westerns - considered by many to be the movie that propelled John Wayne to stardom in 1939. The film is set against the impressive backdrop of Monument Valley in Utah and tells the story of a mixed group of travellers who are making their way across the country to Arizona. They are endangered by an Indian War Party which, along with their personal histories, results in diffi culties. Paying particular attention to the character studies of the group Stagecoach is a taut psychological piece that earned several Oscar® nominations* and wins**. ‘OSCAR®’ is the registered trademark and service mark of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. * Nominations for Best Picture, Best Director, Best Cinematography, Best Art Direction, Best Film Editing. **Thomas Mitchell 1940 Best Actor in a Supporting Role, Stagecoach.

Fort Apache:
The first of John Ford’s trilogy of cavalry movies set during America’s struggle against the Apache Indian. Henry Fonda plays the stubborn Colonel Thursday whose textbook methods of warfare appear pure suicide to everyone but him. John Wayne stars as Captain York, a soldier experienced in Apache warfare, from whom Thursday will take no advice. The fi lm builds to the inevitable confrontation with the Apache masses and Thursday leads his men into the lions’ den.L

Rio Grande:
Lt. Col. Kirby Yorke (John Wayne) is the hard-riding hero of the US cavalry patrolling the badlands of the Mexican Border – a lonely and dangerous command. One of his men happens to be his own son (Claude Jarman Jr.). When the Colonel’s estranged wife (Maureen O'Hara) suddenly arrives at the fort, Yorke finds himself having to deal with another formidable adversary! Yet the threat of Indian attack is never far away, and soon the two men must face the danger of the Rio Grande…

This is not just a nostalgic trip through westerns of my childhood. It is a testament to the art of cinema in the days when all you had was a story, a setting and decent actors working hard under great direction.

This collection in the novelty Wagon Wheel shaped container comprises two of the great US Cavalry trilogy and Wayne's breakthrough role as the Ringo Kid in Stagecoach. My only criticism is that the omission of the greatest of all Ford/Wayne oaters 'She Wore a Yellow Ribbon' robs the purchaser of the chance to compare the three best US Cavalry films ever made for less than a £10 note.

I'm new to classic westerns, having stumbled upon the John Wayne/John Ford film "She Wore a Yellow Ribbon" on TV and fiound myself impressed by Ford's location filming & Wayne's thoughtful, sensitive performance.
I ordered this set to complete the "Cavalry" trilogy, but although I thought "Fort Apache" generally pretty good, especially the conflict of views between John Wayne & Henry Fonda (not to mention the hilarious society dance scene) I can't say the same about "Rio Grande", which after the impressive opening scene of battle-wreary troopers returning to the fort, was just one Wild West cliche after another, the Indians treated as all-purpose baddies (in the other Cavalry films they are shown respect) and cloying domestic scenes.
"Stagecoach" is another matter entirely - absolutely superb, despite its age. In-depth characterisation, a well-structured plot and pace aplenty.
What dates these films irredeemably is the humour, especially the knockabout drunken Irish sergeant who seems to have his set-piece in all the cavalry films. The location filming, as I said, is very very impressive - though the studio scenes are at times purely functional.
I don't much like the metal tin these 3 discs came in - difficult to shelve or display as it doesn't stand up unsupported. But at this price the set is good value and the picture quality generally ok ("Rio Grande" was very dark in some scenes).
I also bought "Wagon Master", which features some of the same actors and it a cracking good story with a fascinating leading lady.
