Collection of six Maureen O'Hara films. 'Rio Grande' (1950) is the third and final part of John Ford's trilogy detailing the post-Civil War period, following in the footsteps of 'Fort Apache' (1948) and 'She Wore a Yellow Ribbon' (1949). Lieutenant Kirby Yorke (John Wayne) is stationed at a remote cavalry post, at which his son, Jeff (Claude Jarman Jr.), enlists in order to prove himself to his father. Yorke's ex-wife (O'Hara) arrives to fetch her son back, but her love for Kirby is rekindled amidst much family tension. In 'The Quiet Man' (1952), also directed by Ford, Sean Thornton (Wayne) is an Irish-American boxer who refuses to fight again after a traumatic bout; but when love intervenes he is forced to return to the ring to win the heart and hand of local girl Mary Kate (O'Hara), whose brother, squire 'Red' Will Danaher (Victor McLaglan), objects to the match. In 'Against All Flags' (1952), Errol Flynn stars as British navy officer Brian Hawke who goes undercover in a pirate-ridden Madagascar port to gain information on their fortifications so that the military can bring them down. While there, he meets pirate Prudence 'Spitfire' Stevens (O'Hara) and the two form a mutual affection for one another. However, Spitfire becomes jealous when Hawke saves Princess Patma (Alice Kelley). With these complications afoot, can Hawke successfully complete his mission? In 'Lady Godiva of Coventry' (1955), set in England in the eleventh century, O'Hara plays the title character. When Lord Leofric (George Nader) refuses an arranged marriage he is sent to prison where he meets Godiva, the sheriff's daughter. After they marry, the trouble brewing between the Anglo-Saxon people results in her riding naked through the streets of Coventry to make a stance. In 'Our Man in Havana' (1959), a spy spoof based on the novel by Graham Greene, Alec Guinness stars as Jim Wormold, an English expatriate who sells vacuum cleaners in Havana. His life is irrevocably changed when he is recruited by Hawthorne (Noel Coward) and pressed into service as an operative of MI6, which he reluctantly agrees to so he can earn extra money for his 17-year-old daughter. 'Rare Breed' (1966) is based on real-life events that took place in the 1880s when Hereford cattle were first introduced to the American West. Martha Price (O'Hara) and her daughter, Hilary (Juliet Mills), enlist the help of Sam 'Bulldog' Burnett (James Stewart), a wandering ranch hand, to carry out the dream of Martha's late husband who died en route to America. His dream was to introduce Hereford cattle by transporting a lone bull, Vindicator, to Texas to breed it with longhorn cattle. Martha, Hilary and Sam set out on the road to Texas with the bull, but the trail is fraught with dangers and Sam has to rescue the women from a series of Western-style ambushes and abductions.
