4.0 out of 5 stars The episodes are short and sweet, plenty of guest stars and the picture quality ..., 17 Sept. 2014
The episodes are short and sweet, plenty of guest stars and the picture quality is good for a show this old - what I'd like to point out is that the whole thing is region free - which makes it a must have for any UK viewers!

4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining but flawed spaghetti revolutionary western, 17 May 2014
Mr Salters review says it all, the script by Franco Solinas creates an interesting Mexican revolutionary flick that is a delight for the aficionados to watch. Just want to add something about the Koche Media DVD - again they have done a wonderful job restoring the picture, I can't see how the blu-ray would look much better. There are some parts where there is no English dubbing, but the English subtitles kick in and it doesn't really effect the viewing pleasure. The music score by Morricone suits the film well and both Steiner and Milian put on a good show - in truth Orson Welles looked as though he was just walking through the film, but that's just a minor quibble.

3.0 out of 5 stars Region Free dvd, 6 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an odd collection, some of the prints are really very good and some are downright awful - but for the price and selection a pretty good deal.

This is what's on the discs:

Disc 1
Buffalo Bill Jnr - Blazing Guns
The adventures of Kit Carson - The Desperate Sheriff
The Cisco Kid - Pancho Hostage
Annie Oakley - Sharp Shooting Annie
The Lone Ranger - Rustler's Hideout
Red Ryder - Whiplash
Roy Rogers - Bad Neighbors
Tate - A lethal Pride

Disc 2
The High Chaparral (looks like it's recorded fom an old B&W TV set!!!) - Shadow of the Wind
26 Men - Ranger without a Badge
Range Rider - The Buckskin
Sugarfoot - Return of the Canary Kid
The Texan - Quart of the Law
The Rifleman - Day of the Hunter (Yet again!!)
Frontier Doctor - Trouble in Paradise Valley

Disc 3
The texas Rangers - Fox Hunt
Bat Masterson - A noose fits everyone
Yancy Derringer - Christmas Story
Judge Roy Bean - The Katchina Doll
Cowboy G-Men - Golden Wolf
Death Valley Days - Deadline at Austin
Shotgun Slade - Killer's Brand

The last Disc is probably the most interesting as it contains episodes of series I have never heard of?
Diamond Jim - Dale Robertson
Tumbleweed - Baron of Purgatory
The Sheriff of Cochise - The Red-Haired Visitor
Frontier - Assassin (Chuck Conners vehicle)
Johnny Moccasin
Night RIder
Story of a star
The Adventures of Rick O'Shay

All in all a bargain for what I paid for it (5 pounds)

4.0 out of 5 stars The first TV western, 23 April 2014
Remember with season 1 they were just starting to develop Cheyenne, so don't expect the famous theme tune or a run time longer than around 40 minutes - but do expect good audio and video (at least for the age). LQ Jones plays 'smitty' in a few of these season 1 episodes and the only special feature is an interview with Clint Walker on disc seven - subtitles are only in French and Spanish, but the good news is that this set is region free and not locked into region 1 as described on the back of the box, so they will play anywhere.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good clean fun, 18 April 2014
This Burt Kennedy directed caper is an enjoyable escapade - don't expect great acting or a detailed plot, but it remains the only western to team John Wayne and Kirk Douglas - it's a shame that we have Howard Keel playing the role of one of the indians, but aside from that I found it a good evenings entertainment. The picture quality is excellent, the sound fine and there are subtitles available - no need to upgrade to blu-ray.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting take on the western, 8 April 2014
This is the complete(only) series of the show starring Bruce Campbell as a lawyer turned bounty hunter, amusing in parts, slightly silly in others, this 8 DVD set has the original TV ratio and subtitles in French and Spanish (but no English). Audio and picture quality are fine and best of all this set is region free, so it plays here in Europe.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wronged Man Western, 3 April 2014
This review is from: Three Hours To Kill (Amazon Video)
An entertaining 50s western starring Dana Andrews and Donna Reed. I have the Spanish DVD (Tres Horas Para Vivir) but the cover is the same as this one. Picture quality is superb for a film of this age, and the film is entertaining if you like Westerns. Although the plot is slightly cliched, the mystery is still there. Well worth it for the advertised price (7 pounds)

4.0 out of 5 stars Spanish Version -Il Justerio, 30 Mar. 2014
The Spanish DVD version has excellent picture quality and audio - can't see how the Blu-ray would be any better - unfortunately only Portuguese and Spanish subtitles, but these can easily be turned off - as other reviewers have mentioned this is a good B&W film starring Robert Taylor, Fess Parker, Jack Lord and a host of regular western actors in an entertaining movie - not action packed but a good drama to watch with the family.
