This DVD contains 23 B films of mostly the early 30s. It also shows Angel and the Badman, and McClintock which had not been "renewed" but still is decent quality. The early films show a continually developing Duke...you can actually see how his acting style, riding, fighting, etc. improve through training of people like Yakima Canutt, who is in a good many of these. It also shows, little by little his adding his own, later to be famous, traits that made John Wayne the star he was.
But, one of the best aspects is an interview of Pappy Ford that I had not seen. It is done with Hank Fonda, Duke, and Jimmy Stewart in Monument Valley, probably the last time Pappy was there...sort of his "Goodbye" to his favorite place. Hank actually HUGs Pappy and Pappy allows it! The DVD is worth THIS alone! For a paltry amount of money, this is surely a CLASSIC DVD if you are looking to learn about Duke and the beginning of his development of what would become the greatest Western movie actor ever.
