I recently started my John Wayne DVD collection and rely a lot on the reviews provided by previous buyers. I'm not so much looking for reviews of the movies, the plot lines, or the actors. I'm looking for information about the technical quality of the DVD production; is it a quality copy or a bad dub; is the video and sound good or poor; are there worthy extras like scene selection or directors comments. I recently discovered the issue with regions and having the appropriate DVD player by reading these reviews.

In this particular instance, the video and sound quality is good; these seem to be good copies of the original movies; no extras. My only issue is the extra small print on the DVD ring labeling the movie titles. My eyes aren't as good as they used to be. Because the DVD's are double-sided there's no big label or graphics to identify them, just the very small center ring. So, I recommend the DVD set - and a magnifying glass.

Classic westerns that I couldn't live without, even though Ted Turner likes them too and plays all of them about a half dozen times a year on his movie network. But the picture quality is better and I can watch any of them whenever I want.

Great Quality. Who can turn down a good John Wayne Western. It is still nice to see movies without sex, and bad language. My 3 year old watches these movies with me and loves them. Quality family time.

Can a person go wrong with a classic JW western? How about 4 of them in one pack then!!! What a great buy for these essential JW movies.

With "The Searchers," John Wayne turns in a haunting memorable performance as Ethan Edwards, a man returned from the war. After his family is slaughtered by Natives, he sets out to find the capturers of his niece. What ensues is one of the finest performances of his career. This movie has a somber tone, but there are a few laughs thrown in here and there. A must watch.

1972's "The Cowboys" shows Wayne as a rancher that needs to find some hired hands to move his cattle. Because of the lack of man power, he enlists a group of young boys and turns them from greenhorns into full fledged drovers. Another fine performance from Wayne, and one of his most touching westerns.

I have to say that although "Rio Bravo" has a stellar cast with JW, Dean Martin, and Ricky Nelson, I still prefer "El Dorado" (which is essentially the very same movie, but with Robert Mitchum in place of Deano, and James Caan in the Ricky Nelson role). Rio Bravo is an excellent movie in its own right, with several memorable one liners like "Sorry don't get it done, Dude. Don't ever do that again." This was voted as the #1 western of all time by "American Cowboy" magazine.

If you dont have this group of movies in your collection, what are you waiting for? The western and the Duke live on forever!

This collection of John Wayne western's from Turner Classic Movies is very representative of "The Duke's" work. Three of the films are in "living color" ("Fort Apache" is in beautiful black and white.)

The site says there are no "extra's", but that is not quite true. "The Cowboy's" offered a discussion with the director and various surviving cast members. "The Searchers" contained a commentary track from Peter Bogdanovich along with an intro by Patrick Wayne. All of the films contained the original trailer.

While this was a tad disappointing compared to some other TCM collections which offer trailer, newsreel, short subject and a cartoon, there's nothing to complain about with this offering.

What can I say about 4 John Wayne films. They are great. The picture and sound are good quality. The reproduction has not hampered the quality of the films. I recommend these to anyone who loves good westerns.

Although the movies and quality is great, I was disappointed to find that the discs did not have any type of art or title on them. You have to manually label them with a marker, making them look unprofession and more like flea market copies.

John Wayne is great and his movies are a joy to share with my young children. I get to bring an American hero into our living room.
