John Wayne 3 Film Collection (DVD)
The AlamoJohn Wayne produces, directs and stars in this larger than life chronicle of one of the most remarkable events in American history. At the Alamo--a crumbling adobe mission--185 exceptional men joined together in a sacred pact: they would stand firm against an army of 7000 and willingly give their lives for freedom. Filmed entirely in Texas, only a few miles from the site of the actual battle, The Alamo is a visually stunning celebration of courage and honour. Co-starring Richard Widmark, Laurence Harvey and Chill Wills, and garnering seven Oscar nominations (1960: Best Picture, Best Supporting Actor, Best Cinematography, Best Sound (winner), Best Editing, Best Score and Best Song) it is a truly memorable movie spectacle. The Horse SoldiersJohn Wayne teams with William Holden and eminent western director John Ford for this frontier actioner packed with laughter, romance and thrills. Written by John Lee Mahin and Martin Rackin, this faithful representation of one of the most daring cavalry exploits in history is both a moving tribute to the men who fought and died in that bloody war, and a powerful, action-packed drama. Based on an actual Civil War incident, The Horse Soldiers tells the rousing tale of a troop of Union soldiers who force their way deep into Southern territory to destroy a rebel stronghold at Newton Station. In command is hard bitten Colonel Marlowe (Wayne), a man who is strikingly contrasted by the company's gentle surgeon (Holden) and the beautiful but crafty Southern belle (Constance Towers) who's forced to accompany the Union raiders on perhaps the most harrowing mission in the war. Red RiverOne of the finest westerns ever made, this monumental, sweeping and powerful masterpiece features impassioned performances, stunning cinematography and adventure on a grand scale. Starring John Wayne, Montgomery Clift (in his screen debut), Walter Brennan, Harry Carey, Sr. and Noah Beery, Jr., Red River is a hard-hitting, action-packed adventure that captures the grandeur, majesty--and danger--of the wild American West. Wayne gives one of the best performances of his career as Tom Dunson, a self-made cattle baron who'll do anything to protect his way of life. So when plummeting livestock values demand that he drive his herd through the treacherous Chisholm Trail, Tom proves that he'll risk anything to reach his destination... even his own sanity.
