Movie Reviews

Avoid due to quality control issues!

"This set is impressive, no doubt. The collection of films is fantastic; the packaging looks nice, but it's all over the internet: the way the discs are secured damages them.

My set arrived-- with all of the discs on their spindles appropriately-- and EVERY ONE had significant scratches due to the method by which they were SCREWED ON to the spindles.

Were I the only person with this issue, I wouldn't score this set so poorly, but I have talked to dozens of people who purchased the set. Only ONE received his without significant scratching. I've tried contacting Fox, but they have been no help at all."
A lot of money for not a lot of extra stuff.....from an owne

"Hi Folks,

I bought this set...even though I own most of the strongest films in the collection as any true movie or Ford fan would...they are simply classics. I'm writing to tell the curious what the extra stuff is...and frankly, its not much. The smaller sets available are much better deals for the Ford novice. This set does contain Tobacco Road (which I'm sure will be out on its own soon) and a few other oddities that may or may not make it on their own but the packaging is overly large to accomodate the hardback book..which is really the only true extra item in here...and while its a really nice book , I doubt anyone would like to pay 2-3 hundred bucks for it. You can collect most of the relevant films in the smaller sets MUCH less expensively and the documentary DVD which is available on its own as well as in the classic set with Grapes/CLementine/How Green and Drums along the Mohawk...and You get cover art etc...this set is sadly lacking in such as the DVDs are in a big book. I should also add for the non-Ford fans who are curious...that this tells only half the story...the amazing Ford/John Wayne pictures are not here...and need to be in any Ford collection...among others so it isn't really even definitive Ford for $300...

I guess I would just sum it up by can get basically all of this elsewhere a lot more convenient packaging and a lot this is something for the fan who just needs it all and or collector..but as is I can't recommend it for beginning Ford fan or fanatic."
Submarine patrol

"I think this huge set has some missing Ford films shot at the Fox studios.
I have spotted two. The Submarine Patrol 1939 and Men Without Women 1930. They are also Fox films directed by Ford. But the set does not include them. I don't understand why. This huge set should have had all Ford-Fox films.

And I don't understand why "The World Moves On", "Tobacco Road" and "The Four Men and a Prayer" won't be released individually while some very early and obscure Ford films (like Just Pals) will be available separately. These films has a star power which is also a strong selling point for classic film fans. Madeleine Carroll, Gene Tierney, Loretta Young etc. I hope they will also be available in the near future."
Unnecessary cuts
Carlos W. Wilson | Murfreesboro, TN USA | 07/02/2007
(2 out of 5 stars)

"This is the first review for me--I do not usually make the time or have an inclination; nevertheless, I feel compelled after having purchased this version to warn future buyers that about 10 minutes of the film have been deleted from the original. One spot in particular is the poignant scene where Judge Priest is talking to his departed wife in their room as he stands before her picture. The early part is there, but then this version cuts abruptly to the cemetery scene. The full version gives greater depth to the character. I have no idea why this was felt necessary. What a dissapointment."
