John Wayne Western (3 Pack)
Man Who Shot Liberty Valance
Director John Ford brings us to the lawless frontier village of Shinbone, a town plagued by a larger-than-life nemesis, Liberty Valance (Lee Marvin). James Stewart plays the bungling but charming big-city lawyer determined to rid Shinbone of Valance, and he finds that he has an unlikely ally in the form of a rugged local rancher (John Wayne). The two men also share the same love interest (Vera Miles). But when the final showdown becomes inevitable, one of the two will attempt to get the gunman. . .but the other one will wind up getting the gal.
Sons of Katie Elder
Katie Elder bore four sons. . .and the day she is buried they all return home to Clearwater, Texas, to pay their last respects. John Wayne is the eldest and toughest son, the gunslinger. Tom (Dean Martin) is a gambler who is good with a gun when he has to be. Matt (Earl Holliman) is the quiet one - nobody ever called him yellow. . .twice. Bud (Michael Anderson, Jr.) is the youngest. Any hope for respectability lies with him. Directed by Henry Hathaway (True Grit), an acknowledged master of the Western, the story has a dual theme, not only is this a he-man's story, it is also a drama of the maternal influence of Katie Elder.
Afflicted with a terminal illness, John Bernard Brooks (John Wayne), the last of the legendary gunfighters, quietly returns to Carson City for medical attention from his old friend Dr. Hostetler (James Stewart). Aware that his days are numbered, the troubled man seeks solace and peace in a boarding house run by a widow (Lauren Bacall) and her son (Ron Howard). However, it is not Brooks' fate to die in peace, as he becomes embroiled in one last valiant battle.
