Movie Reviews

This box set does NOT contain THE QUIET MAN
J. Kaneshiro | Honolulu, HI | 05/23/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Contrary to Amazon's editorial description above, the John Wayne Century Collection contains 14 movies, but does NOT include THE QUIET MAN. Still, it is a good bargain and contains a new Special Edition release of TRUE GRIT."
Better extra features than I'd expect from Paramount
calvinnme | 03/05/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Paramount is generally clueless about handling the classic movies they have in their possession. Just because the movies star John Wayne, I wouldn't expect Paramount to treat them any differently, but this time they actually did a good job. Paramount actually included commentary on five of the films, although why there isn't anything extra on the wonderful "Man Who Shot Liberty Valance" and there's only a featurette on the epic "In Harm's Way", I don't know. The product description does a pretty good job of describing each film, so I'll just list the extra features for each movie:

Big Jake - NO EXTRAS

Donovan's Reef - NO EXTRAS

Hatari! - NO EXTRAS

In Harm's Way - Three theatrical trailers; "The Making of in Harm's Way"

El Dorado - NO EXTRAS

Even though we're not getting "The Quiet Man" in this extensive set, "McLintock" almost makes up for it as the dynamic between John Wayne and Maureen O'Hara is just as combative with that same underlying chemistry. Think of it as The Quiet Man of the frontier west. Highly recommended."
Fabulous collection
Victoria L. Shure | 07/13/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a must-have collection for John Wayne fans. The movies are some of his best and many come with special features and interviews with actors and actresses that co-starred and worked with "The Duke." Great quality and very entertaining!"
Great gift...

(5 out of 5 stars)

"I bought the John Wayne box set for my father, but I like the movies listed here. John Wayne was a hero in his time, and as far as I'm concerned no one else can be the actor or even come close to the work he accomplished. I greatly recommend this box set for anyone who's a big fan of the classics."
