Technically a John Wayne quadruple feature, but each one is only 53 to 55 minutes long. These are early John Wayne films before he became a big Hollywood star. In a couple of these he is portrayed as a singing cowboy, what a joke. John Wayne couldn't sing so the singing was dubbed. These are fair films with typical and predictable plots. Worth a look if you're interested in seeing John's early work. The set contains the following films:
Riders of Destiny (1933)
Sagebrush Trail (1933)
The Man from Utah (1934)
The Star Packer (1934)

A typical old western with a formulaic plot.

"I found these movies to be extremely formulaic. The plot wasn't all that bad though and seemed to at least move. The most disappointing factor of all is that it's on DVD and the sound is terrible. You can't understand half of what they say. It sounds like they recorded off of a bad speaker that keeps popping. At one point the film even scrolls. Disappointing use of media, okay plot, excellent for camp value."
Just click on the photo.

"The 4 John Wayne films listed on this DVD are "riders of destiny,starpacker,sagebrush trail and man fom Utah".It is just his 1930s b-grade films and not really worth buying."

"Please realize that these b-westerns were made in the 1930's to be weekly entertainment. We didn't have TV's and the movie was king. However, times have changed. Is this movie still worth watching? Yes.The Star Packer has one plot gimmick-a hollow tree trunk in the middle of a road in a western town. Once you accept the tree trunk, the movie is actually a decent movie. The story doe not bog down and keeps moving. A westrern has to have some good horse riding in it, and there are some good western action scenes which includes a couple of horse chase scenes. If you like this movie, you might like another early Wayne movie titled "Desert Trail.""
