Editorial Reviews

If there’s one kind of movie Hollywood knows how to make, it’s the adventure film. Posters promised thrills, excitement, romance, danger – and they delivered! Here are a dozen tantalizing tales of derring-do spanning five decades, with such legendary stars as Douglas Fairbanks, Gregory Peck, Ava Gardner, Wallace Beery, Fay Wray, Susan Hayward, and Robert Wagner!

These awesome adventures take you from the darkest jungles of Africa to sun-drenched desert isles; from twenty thousand leagues under the sea to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro – and everywhere in between! No fan of excitement, romance or danger should miss out on this breathtaking assortment of adventures!

Disc One

20,000 LEAGUES UNDER THE SEA (1916) – This early version of the Jules Verne classic, produced by Universal founder Carl Laemmle, was filmed partly in the Bahamas – where Disney would shoot the remake nearly 40 years later. 100 mins.

LAST OF THE MOHICANS (1920) – Wallace Beery (The Champ) stars in this silent telling of the James Fennimore Cooper frontier classic in which future horror giants Boris Karloff and Bela Lugosi can be glimpsed – as Indians! 74 mins.

THE ADVENTURES OF TARZAN (1921) – The cinema’s first Tarzan, Elmo Lincoln, stars in one of those rare sequels that are actually superior to the original. Tarzan battles lions, volcanoes, and Bolsheviks (oh my)! 47 mins.

Disc Two

THE PRISONER OF ZENDA (1922) – The DVD premiere of this silent swashbuckling version of the classic tale, starring Lewis Stone (Grand Hotel) in the dual role of king and commoner, and Ramon Navarro (Ben-Hur) as the villainous Rupert of Hentzau. 94 mins.

ROBIN HOOD (1922) – The irrepressible Douglas Fairbanks stars in this big-budget telling of the amiable archer who steals from the rich and gives to the poor. Alan Hale Sr. is Little John – a role he’d reprise in the 1938 Errol Flynn version. 120 mins.

Disc Three

EAST OF BORNEO (1931) – Rose Hobart (Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde) is a dutiful wife who braves the steaming jungles of Borneo in search of her good-for-nothing husband, only to battle crocodiles, volcanoes, and a rather lustful tribal prince. 75 mins.

THE MOST DANGEROUS GAME (1932) – Joel McCrea (Sullivan’s Travels) and Fay Wray (King Kong) are on the run from a ruthless hunter (Leslie Banks from The Man Who Knew Too Much) in this classic thriller (shot on the jungle set of the aforementioned – but not-yet-released - Kong). 65 mins.

MR. ROBINSON CRUSOE (1932) – A rare Douglas Fairbanks talkie (with very little dialogue) in which he plays a yachtsman who, on a bet, strands himself on a South Seas island, where he must battle angry natives. Maria Alba (The Return of Chandu) plays Saturday, his pretty girl Friday (?). 70 mins.

Disc Four

SON OF MONTE CRISTO (1940) – One of the greatest swashbuckling sagas ever filmed, with a stellar cast that includes Louis Hayward and Joan Bennett (who had both just appeared in The Man in the Iron Mask). George Sanders (All About Eve) plays Hayward’s rival for Bennett’s hand. 102 mins.

THE JUNGLE BOOK (1942) – The original – and in many ways superior – Technicolor version of Kipling’s beloved jungle classic, with young Indian actor Sabu as Mowgli, the wild boy who must contend with tigers, snakes, and greedy white men as he seeks the Treasure of the Lost City. 108 mins.

Disc Five

THE SNOWS OF KILIMANJARO (1952) – Hemingway’s rugged adventure about a writer (Gregory Peck) who becomes delirious as he lies wounded in the African jungle, alternating between visions of his lost love (Ava Gardner) and his very real - but neglected - wife (Susan Hayward). 117 mins.

BENEATH THE 12-MILE REEF (1953) – Father-and-son sponge fisherman (Gilbert Roland from The Bad and the Beautiful and Robert Wagner from Titanic) vie for the affections of lovely Terry Moore (Mighty Joe Young) while plying their trade in and around a deadly coral reef. 100 mins.

Total: 1072 mins. = 17.5+ hours

I bought this set mainly for the silent classics that were much cheaper buying this set than individually. IF you could find them individually. The silent version in this set of "The Last of the Mohicans" is great. The silent version of "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea" is a very impressive silent movie. It is almost unbelievable that such a film could have been filmed in 1916. Another favorite from the set is "The Prisoner of Zenda". It is a great early swashbuckler that I find myself watching over and over. "Robin Hood" with Douglas Fairbanks is a well done silent film. I was somewhat disappointed in "The Adventures of Tarzan". It was advertised and being better than the origial Tarzan but I don't agree with that opinion.

Some of the early talkies are good also. "The Most Dangerous Game" with Fay Wray and Joel McCrea is a thrilling watch. "East of Borneo" is another good adventure yarn I find myself watching again and again. "Mr. Robinson Crusoe" is another Douglas Fairbanks film (but a talkie this time) and is more light hearted than the other films in this set. "Son of Monte Cristo" is okay. "The Jungle Book" is okay. "Beneath the 12 Mile Reef" is okay. "The Snows of Kilamanjaro" is movie that has never impressed me.

So now you have the entire list of what is in this set and my personal opinion of them. If you like silent and early talkies in the adventure genre you will appreciate this set. If you are not familiar with this type of film this would be a good place to start. I consider this one of the better "collections" I have purchased.
