Overall this is an excellent of Westerns to add to your collection and if you have any of these already this is a great item to free up some DVD space. I would and I have recommended this. Universal did a great job that I wish they would do another one.
1) You get ten westerns, many shot on location, with Utah, Arizona, and New Mexico representing the American West. The location shooting provides splendid scenery for the stories these films tell.
2) You get a mix of B program westerns and some "top of the bill" films like "The Spoilers", "Whispering Smith", and "The Virginian". In my opinion, all the movies are entertaining, relatively fast paced (none of the films are over 90 minutes long), and fun!
3) Most important to me, Universal's Home Entertainment division has used excellent source material. These dvds are superior to other bargain films in their visual and audio presentations. No pops and hisses on the sound tracks and no washed out black and white or faded color presentations. In my opinion (again), the films have got to look and sound as good (if not better) than they did in theatrical runs (and that was 70 years ago for some of these films). I was mesmerized by even the least of these movies (for me, "When the Daltons Rode"/"Texas Rangers Ride Again) by the quality of the images and and sound. The dvd gives these westerns an immediacy that was startling. (I viewed these films on a Samsung 2010, 46" television and an Opp 83 Blu Ray/DVD Player)
4) Finally, these 10 very entertaining, top flight presentations cost 10 DOLLARS!!! One buck a movie. One film has been released on the previous Western Classics, Vol.2 Universal 4 film dvd (Kansas Raiders) and "Whispering Smith" and "Albuqerque" were released as stand alone dvds back about 10 years ago. I had purchased those dvds. I still feel I got one of the best dvd deals ever and I began buying the little discs in 1998!
