5.0 out of 5 stars A great collection of John Wayne's Westerns June 16 2003
This splendid collection of John Wayne's Westerns is a must-have for any fan or would-be fan of John Wayne (if you don't have these films already, that is). It contains some of the Duke's best movies, at an affordable price and in an attractive packaging. All of these movies are great:
THE SHOOTIST was the Duke's last film, and is truly a door-closing sort of movie. It is a fitting end to a very long and very great career. Wayne plays an old, dying gunfighter who is ready to hang up his guns but just cannot be left alone to die in peace.
THE SONS OF KATIE ELDER: Wayne stars as John Elder, the eldest son of a woman named Katie who has just died. John and his three younger brothers (one of them played by Dean Martin) return to their hometown to mourn their mother and to set things right with the people who wronged her.
TRUE GRIT: Old, fat, and ornery. That describes Rooster Cogburn (played by Wayne) as well as anything. Duke one an Oscar for his performance in this film. Truly, this is a unique character for Wayne, and a good film.
EL DORADO: This is one of my favorite of Duke's movies. He plays a gunfighter-turned-deputy, and fights to aid his alchoholic friend (the sheriff) of a gang of outlaws infesting the town. Features James Caan in a great performance as 'Mississippi.'
THE MAN WHO SHOT LIBERTY VALLANCE: Wayne stars opposite James Stewart in this John Ford classic. Wayne's character (Tom Doniphan) is a rancher/gunman whose noble spirit saves the life of a young lawyer (Stewart) come to bring 'order' to the small territorial town of Shinbone.
These are five great films by the Duke, three of them (Liberty Vallance, the Shootist, El Dorado) among the Duke's best (in my opinion), and all of them very enjoyable. This box set makes a great addition to any home DVD library.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fair, Good, Great and near-Great April 5 2003
I received this set as a Christmas gift. I am pleased to now own a DVD version of "The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance" which is my favorite Western and "True Grit" which previously held that personal title. I was also happy to own "The Shootist" which ranks as a near-great Wayne movie. I will enjoy "The Sons of Katie Elder" a time or two again but I am disappointed that "El Dorado" couldn't have been replaced by the better movie it copied; "Rio Bravo". This is, of course, the problem with movie "sets". I'm not sure whether the person or persons who put these collections together include lesser movies in order to market them better or whether they really think that they're in the same class as the others. What would have been hard to top would have been "Red River" replacing "The Sons of Katie Elder" along with the aforementioned switch to "Rio Bravo". Oh well, at least it didn't include "Rio Lobo".

5.0 out of 5 stars You can't go wrong with THIS package! April 10 2004
By A Customer
Individually, these five movies range from three stars to five stars, but as a package, I give it FIVE STARS. Watch them in chronological order and you see the Duke evolve from 50's Hollywood "tough guy" to legendary leading man in his final film. The man truly had more depth as an actor than the medium of the 50's allowed him to show. In 1976 he was finally given a vehicle to give us everything he had, even though he truly was dying of cancer.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE DUKE IS THE GREATEST EVER! Sept. 8 2002
There never has been and never will be again a movie star like John Wayne. Miles above everyone else. These are five of his greatest films, including his Oscar-winning role as "Rooster Cogburn" in "True Grit", and his last film "The Shootist", for which he should have won an Oscar and which Fox News commentator Bill O'Reilly calls "The best western I've ever seen." Highly recommended.
