Terrible! Horrible acting. Whoever chose these movies made very bad choices. I love Sam Elliott, but even he could not save this disaster.

This is a must see for any who enjoy a good Western movie and who better to star in Westerns than Sam Elliott! Our favorite was Rough Riders. Read about them year ago in school but didn't remember - or realize what they were formed to do and how hard it was to accomplish their goal. A real insight into Teddy Roosevelt. You Know My Name was also an outstanding western based on a true story.

Elliott as marshal, ex-lawman/film director, and San Juan Hi
Annie Van Auken | Planet Earth | 01/21/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"WARNER's SAM ELLIOTT WESTERN COLLECTION features Elliott in three of his best films.

SYNOPSES--

DESPERATE TRAIL-- After years of physical abuse, the daughter-in-law (Fiorentino) of Marshal Bill Speakes (Elliott) kills her husband. She's sentenced to hang but manages to escape with the aid of Jack Cooper (Sheffer). Marshal Speakes will do almost anything to bring her to justice and avenge his son's death.

ROUGH RIDERS-- Made-for-TV biopic about Teddy Roosevelt (Berenger) and the volunteer cavalrymen who in the Spanish-American War of 1898 charged up the heavily-defended San Juan Hill alongside him. Top-notch cast includes co-star Elliott as Capt. Bucky O'Neil.

YOU KNOW MY NAME-- TV movie about real life cowboy and pioneering film director Bill Tilghman (Elliott). An ex-buffalo hunter and deputy of Wyatt Earp, Tilghman is intent on producing realistic westerns, but faces opposition when he favors unknowns for his pictures rather than established stars like Tom Mix. Tilghman also has to deal with a former lawman rival named Wiley (Howard), who makes constant trouble for him.


Also recommended:
In the 4-hour epic GETTYSBURG (1993), Elliott portrays Gen. John Buford. On July 1st, 1863, the heroic efforts of Buford's two brigades of dismounted cavalrymen slowed Gen. Rob't E. Lee's advance on the town of Gettysburg, and made possible the victory that came two days later.

Sam Elliott "is" today's Duke.......

"As a huge Sam Elliott fan, I have been waiting for a compilation of his work. This mini effort of Westerns is surely a great start.
With his rugged good looks ( No one wears a mustache like Sam), his swagger ( without being arrogant)and "that" voice....no matter what role he portrays, he's going to shine. I liked him very much in the original "Quick & the Dead", and as General Sam Houston. My personal favourite role, of course not a western, as Gar, in MASK with Cher. They had great chemistry on screen; so, of course, does his wife Katharine Ross ( but being female, I'd rather not see him with his wife).
I'd buy the compilation, if I didn't already have them singular."

"Sam Elliott is one of my favorite actors. I could listen to his voice reading the New York City phone book and be enthralled. This boxed set contains three terrific movies featuring Elliott. The Rough Riders is a two disc mini-series that I especially liked. This set is well worth the money."
