Box set containing three western movies. 'The Quiet Man' (1952) is directed by John Ford and stars John Wayne as Sean Thornton, 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 (Maureen O'Hara), whose brother, squire Red Will Danaher (Victor McLaglan), objects to the match. In 'Stagecoach' (1939), native American Geronimo is on the warpath in the untamed Wild West, but a stagecoach-load of travellers decide to take their chances and make their way across Utah's Monument Valley. The passenger list comprises an alcoholic doctor (Thomas Mitchell), a shamed prostitute (Claire Trevor), the pregnant wife of a cavalry officer (Louise Platt), a shady bank manager (Berton Churchill), a timid whiskey salesman (Donald Meek) and an on-the-run gambler (John Carradine). En route, they pick up outlaw the Ringo Kid (Wayne) and, as the journey continues, each of the troupe are given a chance to show their true colours. Finally, in 'Rooster Cogburn', a rough and ready lawman (Wayne) teams up with prim missionary Eula Goodnight (Katharine Hepburn), who wants to find the men who killed her father.

But, the films really are Wayne's best and are all five starrers. I wanted 1932's Stagecoach, his breakthrough film and still a classic - enjoyable action and build up of characters, so we rally for them when they get attacked by the Indians.
Rooster Cogburn is arguably Katherine Hepburn's film, in the same way that she dominated Humphrey Bogart in The African Queen. But the relationship here, from what it was to what it becomes is the real story.
And, finally to one of John Ford's last, his ode to his ancestral Ireland, The Quiet Man. The greens are so lushly vibrant and Wayne is almost an old man. Quaint, charming and very different to the Duke's cowboy and indian days.
I paid literally a couple of pounds for my set, 18 months ago. IF you can find it at a car-boot sale or at a similar price and only want the films, not how nicely they're packaged, then this is a must, not only for fans of Wayne, but for any film-lover.
that all three had been translated as stated. My hope is that the studio- UCA- stops, making such bad dvds. Don't hope the rest of their productions
are like this.
The seller send them securely and they arrived safely and they are playable.
One star for the studio and five for the seller.
It was the best present he had...his words, not mine. The exact words he said was BRILLIANT, I loved it, that was the best present I had.... That made my day.
