5.0 out of 5 stars VERY GOOD Films...but shame on the studio...again!
4 films from legendary and I use that word with great respect..director John Frankenheimer. The Train is perhaps one of the last truly great WWII action films in Black and White and featured a gutsy performance by Burt Lancaster. The Manchurian Candidate is a stone classic and the extra features are very well done and add to the enjoyment. Ronin is a good example of...

3.0 out of 5 stars Ronin is great; Young Savages is not convincing
Ronin - Great film. Enough said.

The Train is a good film. A bit dated, but still entertaining.

The Young Savages expresses the "it's society's fault" thinking of the early sixties. Very dated, not convincing, and could have been alot better.

5.0 out of 5 stars VERY GOOD Films...but shame on the studio...again!, January 23, 2008
This review is from: The John Frankenheimer Collection (The Manchurian Candidate / The Train / The Young Savages / Ronin) (DVD)
4 films from legendary and I use that word with great respect..director John Frankenheimer. The Train is perhaps one of the last truly great WWII action films in Black and White and featured a gutsy performance by Burt Lancaster. The Manchurian Candidate is a stone classic and the extra features are very well done and add to the enjoyment. Ronin is a good example of later work by Frankenheimer and frankly the 2 disc set you can get on its own has tons of very informative featurettes that go missing on this set...which brings us to The Young Savages..another Frankenheimer and Lancaster project which sadly is the reason I had to buy this set as I own the other three and this isn't currently being offered on its own. Shame on the studios for these tricks. I think they should not penalize folks who actually buy their movies by bundling up ones you can only get in sets..with ones that have been out for years...I refuse to devalue this set however it is truly worth 5 stars at the price its offered.

Four great movies in one set of DVDs. Quality is very good and the discs play perfect. These are movies that can be watched over and over again from time to time.

Bought it mainly for The Train and the Manchurian Candidate..which I have seen several times but for the price of this set was worth it. The Young Savages don't remember seeing but still not bad.

Fantastic collection. We bought it for The Train, which is superb and isn't available on Netflix or Amazon prime, but who wouldn't love the other two movies? These are considered classics for a good reason.

I bought this after seeing the 2014 George Clooney film: The Monuments Men about the WWII men that saved the art confiscated by Hitler. Someone I know recommended, "The Train" with Burt Lancaster. These are all old movies before my movie viewing time, so they are all new to me and I thoroughly liked them. I was surprised to like, "Manchurian Candidate" with Frank Sinatra. I bought this, quite frankly, because I'm cheap! I could have rented one movie for just a little less than buying this 4 movie DVD. To me, buying the DVD for 4 movies was a better buy. The movies are good and I can watch them again or lend out them out.

Good deal. Good movies.

I had tried to get "The Train" several times but could not get it in Region 1 format. This order fulfilled my desire. Excellent collection of Frankenheimer movies.
