This purchase is a gift. I don't like western movies, but my mother does. So, I bought it for her. Get this if you love westerns, and since John Wayne is a classic, you'll love it. Mostly I thought it was a good deal; you get more than one dvd in the set.
It waws interesting to watch where John Wayne got his start. This includes the explanatory material based upon the history of the relationship between John Wayne and Ford. The films quality was truly fabulous. Including the shoot em up tradition of westerns. I grew up in the southwest and have always liked westerns but usually prefer the sci-fi gendre. I have only seen a couple of films with John Wayne as the star in the past, and actually enjoyed watching the film that brought him out of the grade B westerns that he had been making for a decade prior to this. His relationship to Ford proved very interesting in the documentaries that accompanied this film. It definitely kept your attention and had great character development. This is definitely worth the time to view,IMHO. The stunt men were definitely a cut above. Some times overacted, just from the time frame of when the film was made, I've never preferred old films personally. It had a charm about it that you would have to contribute to the films director and photography.
It was a good movie,with the duke how could it be anything else.
The picture quality was excelent. The plot exciting.
However I dissagre with the critics that this was the best western ever,I like the "Man who shot Liberty Valance" a little better.
I bought it as I have heard it was a good movie,and like most Wayne films.
this is a film makers how to make a star documentary it is john Wayne's first movie and his intro shot alone establishes that he is a the most important character in the movie .watch and learn .
