There's plenty of action, adventure, some romance and even some comedy! This is some great stuff, with some great names. If you are a Western lover, and can watch em' for more than a month of Sunday's, you'll love these sets.And what a reasonable price!(check the sellers for some really good deals!) I've listed each individual volume contained, so that if you prefer to buy them singley, you'll know what you are getting.Oh and by the way, not all are family films..the selection ranges from rated G to R. Most of the earlier volumes(1-10)feature specific actors. I have the first single volume and it has four Randolph Scott oaters. If you are interested, please see my review of Great American Western Vol.1,which describes the films and the DVD transfers.
Saddle Up and Enjoy...Happy Trails....Laurie"

"Besides the standard public domain oaters most of these budget-priced box sets offer, THE GREAT AMERICAN WESTERN Vol. 11-20 also contains three documentaries, plus samplings of two long-forgotten TV series. CADE'S COUNTY starred Glenn Ford in the very last gasp of the big-budget TV western. Despite scripts fraught with social relevance and a who-who guest star roster, this well-intentioned program ran for only 24 episodes before it bit the dust.
Speaking of dust-- the other TV series represented here, DUSTY'S TRAILS, was a western/comedy hybrid featuring Bob Denver (late of Gilligan's Island). THE WACKIEST WAGON TRAIN IN THE WEST is comprised of three episodes of that prairie schooner-shipwreck of a show.
As for the rest of the movies here-- just darn good stuff with dozens of well-known actors. This is a terrific collection at a bargain price that's hard to resist!
And don't forget to check out the initial offering in this series, THE GREAT AMERICAN WESTERN Vol. 1-10 (44 Movies). It's what good-old cowboy movies are all about!
