Editorial Reviews

BATTLE OF THE BULGE This epic recreation of one of World War II's pivotal clashes captures the explosive action of massive forces squaring off as well as the brave ingenuity of weary GIs trying to survive a cruel European winter. Ken Annakin (The Longest Day) directs an all-star juggernaut: Henry Fonda, Robert Shaw, Robert Ryan and more. THE DAWN PATROL Errol Flynn and David Niven take to the skies in this thrilling aerial action yarn as World War I British flyboys who unite in devil-may-care gallantry and in disdain for their commander (Basil Rathbone). But war's realities will soon tarnish their bonhomie and change their disdain to understanding. GUNGA DIN Cary Grant, Victor McLaglen and Douglas Fairbanks Jr. star as cheeky soldiers of Queen and Empire armed with battlefield gallantry and chin-up heroics as they combat a murderous sect in colonial India. Director George Stevens orchestrates teeming battles, boisterous humor – and an indelible title-role performance by Sam Jaffe. OPERATION PACIFIC Meet the dive-for-glory torpedo devils of the USS Thunderfish as John Wayne commands a desperate World War II submarine mission deep into enemy territory. Patricia Neal and Ward Bond co-star.

I bought this for Gunga Din. The other TCM films I own have great quality picture and sound and I wanted Gunga Din in a good copy. This one is EXCELLENT and it is the FULL film, no cuts. It is not really a "war" picture but a great action/adventure picture in the old Hollywood tradition. The commentary is also excellent and gives lots of information about the film, actors and crew, this is the only film with a commentary track. At this price the other 3 pictures are a wonderful bonus. Battle of the Bulge is a beautiful print in "Ultra-Panavision" (2.55:1)and it is the only one in widescreen and color, the rest are the original B&W and standard format. It is a Hollywood "history" picture in the tradition of "The Longest Day", very well done. "The Dawn Patrol" is a good WWI RAF picture with a very good script. "Operation Pacific" is a formula Hollywood WWII submarine picture, done in 1951, but it has sub-plots from a half-dozen WWII pictures and great production values AND, of course, John Wayne so it is a WWII picture worth having, too bad it does not have a commentary track.
All the prints are good picture an good sound and the price is right. The packaging mine came in shows 2 double-sided DVDs but the package contained 4 single sided DVDs with labels.

It's always been hard for lovers of George Stevens' great adventure film GUNGA DIN to find a copy that didn't look like it had been dragged through the dirt. The print in this collection was very, very good. Teaming it with one of my favorite aviation movies, THE DAWN PATROL, made this a must-have.

I bought this mainly for "Gunga Din" the Rudyard Kipling classic, But every film is great! I will be looking for these TCM sets from now on you just cant go wrong they are filled with so many extra's of rare shorts & informative featurette's & cartoons that you really feel you've gotten your money's worth. Talk about something to do on a rainy day, there so well put together you feel like going to the kitchen & making a bowl of pop corn!

There were two films I wanted in this set GUNGA DIN /DAWN PATROL and I wasn't disappointed.Good transfers and good sound and the other two were a bonus. Although I would like to get these sometime in the future on blu ray which gives a picture 5 times clearer than dvd they still get enhanced through a blu ray player.making them that much clearer than a dvd player will show them.

All four discs in this set have good image & audio quality. The only quibble I have is that the four films are on two double-sided DVD's (one film per side), which I dislike because double-sided discs make it too easy to get my fingerprints all over them - I just like keeping my discs' data surfaces pristine.

'Gunga Din' is an all-time top notch classic that will never lose its pride of place in every list of cinema greats.

'The Dawn Patrol' is also a classic, albeit arguably just a shade under the high caliber of 'Gunga Din.' The script is rather dated, but I expect it will always be lovely just to see onscreen Errol Flynn and David Niven together in their youthful prime.

'The Battle Of The Bulge,' is a widescreen (filmed in the Cinerama process) epic that veers far from the actual history of the battle by using fictional characters in fictional narratives woven into and around the unfolding of the actual battle, yet it's quiet watchable for its own suspense and action flair.

'Operation Pacific,' a WWII U.S. Navy submarine tale, is not one of John Wayne's best movies, but it's not one of his worst either.

At least three of these discs have the enjoyable extra features of 'Warner Night At The Movies' to put you into Hollywood Golden Age mood.

In sum, if you find this set's price to be right, you'll get plenty of bang for your buck.

These are great movies and the DVDs are well made. My issue is with the packaging.

The insert for the case describes two double-sided discs and tells which side which movie is on. Based on other reviews, this may have been true at one time. My case had four single-sided discs stacked on one post. Unless the discs are blank, I don't like stacked discs. I'm not a fan of double-sided discs either. Both can increase the chances of scratching the disc or getting smudges on the disc which can cause the disc to freeze during playback. All of these non-standard cases have created playback issues for me. A simple 4-disc case with individual spots for each DVD would have reduced the chances of these problems. With the current design, you have to touch the other discs too much. You might have to handle all four discs if the movie you want to watch is at the bottom of the stack - stack 3 discs off to the side as you handle the 4th disc you plan to play then put the 3 other discs back on the post/spindle.

I enjoyed all four movies with Gunga Din being my favorite. These bad case designs make it difficult to recommend this collection. However, if you're careful, you may be OK. Also invest in normal cases. I'm ordering some 4-disc cases for this and another set that gave me problems. Some players may also handle disc scratches and smudges better than others.
