This is three colorized 1930's John Wayne Westerns cut down into 22 minute TV shows. The new music score that sounds more 1990's. The Westerns in some ways are better shorter. It can be the short before the movie. The colorization adds much to the enjoyment. If you love John Wayne, it's worth a look.

"This is another edition in The Young Duke Series that contains
3 colorized John Wayne westerns from the 1930's. The movies have been drastically edited for time and retitled (although the original titles are given in parenthesis). The colorization is great, so I don't understand why they would want to go and ruin a good thing by cutting so much out of the movies. Even if you had never seen the original B&W versions, you could still tell that something is missing from the movie. However, if you'd just like to see the "young" Duke in color, it might be worth the price."

"It was good to see these old John Wayne westerns remastered to eliminate jerks, spots and streaks. The colorization was well done and was a bonus. These were B-shorts shown before a main movie; but, John Wayne shows the old movies were not that bad with some stunts that still look good today. As was the norm back then, on screen romance is more hinted at than done.
A unified song and music have been added in to give the whole series a sort of a family resemblence. If you like westerns, and if you like John Wayne, you will love these additions to your collection. The same ones in 3 or 4 movies to a disc are available in B&W for comparison.
The movies have been renamed on this Young Duke disc; but the original titles are there too. The only lack is the original dates are not given on the package.
I look forward to more of them added to my collection.
For the real western fan.
