I couldn't sit through the whole thing.
Mary E. Pletsch
No one throws an empty revolver, firearms can not be fired continuously without reloading, bad guys don't jump off their horses & run up rocky hills.
Robert Van Buren
The other movies on this DVD are typical 30's John Wayne and are well worth watching for the John Wayne fan.

I've seen RIDERS OF DESTINY about seven times over a 30-year period. I enjoy it even though the plot, dialog, acting, fistfights, etc. are very crude. This was the first of John Wayne's Lone Star Westerns, a series of films made for about $10,000 apiece. But it has a certain charm I can't explain. Yakima Canutt does a couple of nice stunts as well; Cecilia Parker is as pretty as Toby Wing, in my opinion (Toby was the "Young and Healthy" girl in 42ND STREET).
This DVD, released by Columbia Tri-Star, has the clearest print of RIDERS OF DESTINY that I recall seeing - a very sharp image in many places. Unfortunately, it omits at least 5 1/2 minutes of the film, including a critical plot point. The ranchers say they'll sign a new water rights contract with the evil land baron, only if he'll agree to one additional clause. This version then skips the scene where they say what the clause is, and so the villain's extreme dismay near the end of the film isn't adequately explained.
Perhaps as compensation for the missing scenes, a pseudo-symphonic soundtrack has been dubbed in at various points, sticking out like a huge sore thumb.
I think in the future I'll continue to watch the Goodtimes DVD (2000) for this film; their copy is more complete, even though the picture is somewhat washed out.
The only other film I've watched on this DVD is TWO FISTED LAW starring Tim McCoy (and a small part by John Wayne). I've only seen TWO FISTED LAW once before, so I'm not sure if anything's missing. As a movie, I found it less enjoyable than the films starring John Wayne. The print was in fairly good condition.
When I get around to watching the other films on this DVD 2-Pack I may post more information about print quality and omissions, if I can determine that. At present I give this set 2 out of 5 stars.

This is the second movie I have seen in as many days that has been so-called "digitally remastered." I can tell you this, whoever is doing these poor-quality digital transfers should be shot--not fatally, but wounded in their sitting muscle. These cheap transfers are so pixelated that during action scenes the viewing experience is completely ruined as actors and background (in panning shots) turn into a mass of large pixels. And since John Wayne movies are all about action, low resolution digital transfers like these are totally unacceptable.

The other film I watched that had been similarly digitized was "Driftwood," one of Natalie Wood's first films as a child. "Driftwood" is not an action movie, but even the movement of an actor across the set caused their image to be fuzzed out in large pixels. This was most bothersome in the courtroom scene, a key part of the story.

Taking classic films like "Driftwood" and "Paradise Canyon" and claiming that they have been digitally remastered might mislead people--even archivists--into thinking the original film versions are now redundant and could subject them to ill-handling, improper storage, or even loss. Since legitimate high-quality digital transfers are a way of preserving the old films, saying this one or others like it have been so preserved is therefore a dangerous thing. If one assumes by the doctored photo on the DVD case that this film has been preserved, that assumption is patently incorrect. It was simply digitized, and poorly at that.

The original film versions of classic movies like this need to be protected and preserved by experts instead of being put in the hands of amateurs, or worse yet, exploited by cutthroats who are simply out to make a quick buck. If this trend continues, you should hold onto any VHS (video tape) copies of these old classics, as they could become very dear indeed if the original films are lost or destroyed.

A person has to be a John Wayne Fan in order to view and appreciate his early movies. Made in 1935, this was just his eighth year in the movie business, second of making films in which he was credited and still in his first of Starring. This was in his B movie times, when studios were churning out 6-12 films per year. The story line is predictable and thin in places. But, regardless, John Wayne still had a presence on the screen. As a study of John Wayne goes, this is an example of things to come. Obviously one of the building blocks to John Wayne The Legend.

Some of the reviews I looked over seem to be for different movies. This review is for one of John Wayne's B westerns, PARADISE CANYON. Don't expect STAGE COACH & you will find that this is a pretty good movie. I found it to be more entertaining than most I've seen. Many of the usual things which have become cliches are absent. No one throws an empty revolver, firearms can not be fired continuously without reloading, bad guys don't jump off their horses & run up rocky hills. There is even a plot & some good stunts. I suppose stunts are to be expected with Yakima Canutt around.

I can see how likable John Wayne is in this story and why he is a star. He has presence. The only small hiccup is at the end where the story isn't that continuous.

John Wayne has always been my hero---including his early films. Digitally remastered 1930's are the best !!! The first of many (that I've seen).
