"The Legend of the Lone Ranger" is a 1952 theatrical feature that was created by editing together the first three episodes of the Lone Ranger TV series. "Buckskin Frontier" has a cast of several established and future Hollywood heavyweights (see below). Olympic superstar Jim Thorpe plays a henchman in "Frontier Scout." Drew Barrymore's dad (John Jr.) stars in "High Lonesome." Jim Backus (Mr. Magoo/Thurston Howell III) does his western turn in "The Naked Hills." Rita Hayworth makes an early screen appearance in "Trouble in Texas," as Rita Cansino.
Also included are several Tom Tyler films, and works by Hoot Gibson, Buck Jones, Ken and Kermit Maynard, Tex Ritter, Johnny Mack Brown and more. WESTERN LEGENDS is truly a Who's Who of early to mid 20th Century cowboy stars, and a superb addition to any western movie library.

As fans of these public domain sets already know, the print quality of these films ranges from very good to merely passable - but don't let that stop ya, buckaroo - these films are a real treat no matter what the condition, especially when you consider the price.Read more ›
The downside. Picture and sound quality left a lot to be desired. None of the films were cleaned up; it appears that they were simply transferred, as is, from film to DVD. In fact I noticed a few short gaps in some of the movies. I've got a couple other collections dating to the same era that have been beautifully cleaned up; they appear to have been filmed today.
On balance, the collection is definitely worth while. A great memory of the late 30's through 40's.
These twelve double sided DVDs contain fifty different movies. Most date to the 1930s and 1940s, before expenses went up for producing these low cost films. There is a variety of stars, Roy Rogers (5), John Wayne (4), Tex Ritter (2), and Gene Autry (1). There are movies with real cowboys (like “Hoot” Gibson and Tim McCoy). The other stars are: Tom Tyler, Ken Maynard and brother Kermit (circus and rodeo riders), Buck Jones, Bob Steele, George O'Brien, Ray Corrigan, and many others. These mostly B&W films are now banned from broadcast TV, but you may remember them from the 1950s and 1960s. These were low budget "B pictures" that ran for an hour. You can compare them to current hour long dramas on TV. Back then most farms, stores, and ranches were owner operated small businesses; no national chains or franchises. Some of these movies were set in the 19th century, others are in modern times (automobiles, radios, and telephones). Many are concerned with the economic struggles that marked that era. The right to keep and bear arms was well recognized when these films were made. [Newer versions may not have the paper case with the movies listed, only a booklet.]
