I'm loving this compilation. I already own "Bullit", one of my all time favorite movies, but I had not seen "Papillon" since its original release, I had not ever seen "The Hunter" or "Nevada Smith". Papillon was just as hard to watch as I remember. The scenes when he is in prison and forced to eat bugs was imprinted in my mind at that time, and was a major reason why I cannot ever watch the "Survivor" tv show. During the pilot episode the contestants were forced to eat bugs, and that was it for me, I've never seen another minute of it. That's the kind of impact Steve McQueen as an actor in "Papillon" had on me. Now that we have the DVD, being able to also watch the featurette on the making of the movie was simply fascinating, and worth the price of the DVD all by itself. If you've never seen this movie, it's a little slow, but between Dustin Hoffman and Steve McQueen, it's worth every second of it. Do yourself a favor, and obtain a copy to view this movie. I found the "Hunter" to not be as well made, but it does not matter. Steve is great in it, and there is a strong supporting cast. I was sucked in from the opening scene to the end. Not a great award winning movie by any means, but if you are even a little bit of a McQueen fan, it's a must see. I have not yet viewed "Nevada Smith", but will do a follow up review after I do.

Many times when one sees a four pack of movies it is an attempt to use the really good movie as a tool to sell the not so good movie. However, this is not the case with this four pack. These are four truly outstanding movies. There is no "pooch" film in this collection and it is a wonderful bargain. Even though I already had two of these movies, I couldn't pass up the bargain on this four pack and I would highly recommend this collection to anyone who loves good entertainment and a good bargain.
