If you saw these as a kid they will bring back many good memories. The acting is a lot different than today but that is what makes this CD a collectible. It was great seeing the younger John Wayne, Charles Bronson & others act out their roles and act well in these older westerns.

If you are a western junkie like me, don't you just love these value packs of the old black and white movies, most of them you grew up with. Being born in 1943 I've seen more than my share of 'B' westerns, however, never tire of them.

This recent pack is another in a long line of sets, inexpensive at WalMart or here at Amazon. Listed below are the movies within this set:

Powder Keg-Rod Taylor, Dennis Cole 1971
Boot Hill-Terence Hill, Bud Spencer 1969
To the Last Man-Randolph Scott 1941
Song of Arizona-Roy Rogers 1946
Winds of the Wasteland-John Wayne, Lane Chandler 1936
Rage at Dawn-Randolph Scott 1955
This Man Can't Die-Guy Madison 1967
Cry Blood Apache-Joel McCrea 1970
Hellbenders-Joseph Cotton 1967
It Can Be Done Amigo-Jack Palance, Bud Spencer 1972
Chino-Charles Bronson 1973
Kid Vengeance-Leif Garrett, Lee Van Cleef 1977
Blue Steel-John Wayne, George Gabby Hayes 1934
My outlaw Brother-Mickey Rooney, Robert Stack 1951
Desperate Mission-Ricardo Montalban 1971
Hanged Man-Steve Forrest, Cameron Mitchell, Sharon Acker 1974
Between God, The Devil and a Winchester-Gilbert Roland 1968
The Grand Duel-lee Van Cleef 1972
The Sundowners-Robert Preston, Robert Sterling 1950
White Comanche-William Shatner, Joseph Cotton 1968

There you have it, some that you find on most sets while a few or more are not seen that often. Put a lasso on them soon pardner, afore they is all gone.

Semper Fi.

"The four DVDs of 20 GREAT WESTERNS: HEROES & BANDITS (issued: 12/08) offer an interesting mix of public domainers. Most here enjoy wide circulation, but the few good-quality rarer titles and a low price make ths set worthwhile.

Star of "Cry Blood Apache" is JODY McCrea. Joel appears briefly as son Jody's character in old age.
"To the Last Man" is NOT the 1941 film better known as THEY DIED WITH THEIR BOOTS ON, but a lesser '30s programmer.
Correct spelling of the excellent TV movie is a single word: POWDERKEG.
Euro-western "Chino" reunites director John Sturges and Charles Bronson, both celebrated for THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN (1960).
Mickey Rooney is credible in a straight western in "My Outlaw Brother" as younger sibling of 'El Tigre,' Robert Stack.
"The Desperate Misson," a most-excellent made-for TVer, was directed by Ralph Bellamy (FDR in SUNRISE AT CAMPOBELLO).
Shot-in-Israel oater "Kid Vengeance" includes a role for Jesus of Nazareth.
In the cast of "The Sundowners": John Drew Barrymore, son of John and father of Drew.
Bill Shatner plays twin halfbreed brothers in "White Comanche." The peaceable one lives among whites, the other wars upon Euro-settlers.
