The Three Musketeers (1933) - John Wayne as one of the Three Musketeers? Not quite. This serial takes place not in 17th century France but in modern day French Algeria.

They search for the mysterious leader "El Shaitan" (played by a masked Yakima Canutt, who also arranged the stunts) trying to start an Arab rebellion.

9. The Fatal Cave
10. Trapped
11. The Measure of Man
12. The Glory of Comrade

210 mins.

These are not the movies a John Wayne fan wants to see.

"Is your husband a John Wayne fan but you have no idea which movies to get him? Save your money and skip this collection. Most John Wayne collections consist of forgetable movies from early in John Wayne's career. Amazon has a good collection of movies from later in his career, so concentrate on those instead. Yes, they will cost more, but your John Wayne fan will actually watch them repeatedly, unlike the movies in this collection. Some of my favorites are, The Shootist, The Cowboys, True Grit, The Sons of Katie Elder, Rooster Cogburn, Who Shot Liberty Valence, War Wagon, The Searchers, Rio Bravo, Big Jake, etc."
Yes, Yes, Yes, Buy It!!

"This is a great collection of old time movies, not to mention 3 complete serials. No, they're not digital, hi-def quality. No, they're not all the pristine, crystal clear prints that "some critics" expect, but for the price you can't go wrong! 23 movies, and 3 serials for 35 bucks. OK, I'm not the biggest John Wayne fan, but I am a fan of good old fashion, good guy, bad guy flicks that you wouldn't be ashamed to let your kids or mother watch. This collection is well worth the purchase price."
