"When MCE's WESTERN 250 Movie Pack was issued in late '07, it contained 95 titles this manufacturer had never released before. All but two films in their FRONTIER JUSTICE 50 Movie Pack are drawn from this pool of 95 (the other two are from earlier box sets). The emphasis here is on hour-length cinematic series such as Billy the Kid, The Range Busters, The Rough Riders, Lightnin' Bill Carson, The Three Mesquiteers, The Cisco Kid and The Texas Rangers. Stars featured are Roy Rogers, Gene Autry, Buster Crabbe, the Maynard brothers, Johnny Mack Brown, Hoot Gibson and Randolph Scott.
Several of the later Roy Rogers pictures in this collection were originally released in "Trucolor." The copies here are b&w-- probably dubbed from 16 mm prints once used on early broadcast TV. Despite this source material limitation, Frontier Justice is an excellent choice for fans of vintage westerns. It's also a fine introduction for newcomers to the fondly recalled bygone era of western movies series.
For more films of this type, check out MCE's WESTERN LEGENDS 50 Movie Pack.
Although no sign of restoration is apparent, transfer quality of MCE's public domain films is uniformly good. Their dual-side recorded discs usually contain two titles per side and are housed in gloss-coated heavy paper sleeves. Easy access storage boxes are sturdy and remarkably compact

This Pack is Not As Advertised on Tim McCoy

"I was searching for old Western DVD's that had Tim McCoy and Ken Maynard in it. This DVD pack was highlighted as having a majority of Tim McCoy and Ken Maynard movies in it. Yet when I receive the pack the majority of the movies, (4 to 1) were Roy Rogers followed by Gene Awtrey. There was only (1) Tim McCoy movie in the pack."
Too many roy rogers movies for my liking!
