Collection of five western feature films. 'The Searchers' (1956)
tells the story of Ethan Edwards (John Wayne), an ex-confederate
soldier who swears revenge after his brother's family is butchered
by Comanches and his niece (Natalie Wood) is kidnapped. Accompanied
by Martin Pawley (Jeffrey Hunter), Ethan sets out on an epic
seven-year search for the missing girl. In 'Pale Rider' (1985) a
community of gold mining prospectors comes under attack from a gang
of marauders who are after the prospectors' land. Young Megan
Wheeler (Sydney Penny) prays for help, which consequently arrives
in the form of the Preacher (Clint Eastwood), a grim, silent
stranger. In 'The Wild Bunch' (1969), set in 1913, a gang of
outlaws (William Holden, Ernest Borgnine and Warren Oates, amongst
others) ride into a Texan border town where the railroad office is
their target. The robbery turns into a blood-bath so the gang flee
to a desert hideout where they discover that their loot is
worthless... In 'Rio Bravo' (1959) Sheriff John T. Chance (Wayne)
is holding a murderous villain in his cell while waiting for a
magistrate to collect him for trial. The criminal's associates are
desperate to free him and will stop at nothing to achieve their
goal... 'How the West Was Won' (1962) traces the fortunes of
several generations of an American pioneer family as they move West
and cope with the Civil War. The film's several sections were made
by different directors, including Henry Hathaway and John Ford.
Spencer Tracy narrates, while Henry Fonda, Gregory Peck, James
Stewart and John Wayne top the all-star bill.

Not one of these films are "duds". The Searchers is often referred to as one of the best Westerns of all time. Rate all five of these movies very highly. Anyone interested in Westerns wouldn't go wrong with this boxset. Rio Bravo another of my all time favourites. But then again so are the others. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
