"If you love Westerns, you will love this Warner Western Classics DVD box set. Not just one movie but ALL 6 DVD movies are SPECTACULAR in this set. I could watch them over and over, the movies will keep you on the edge of your seat-----indeed real thrillers! Fantastic acting, beautiful scenery in vibrant color,and LOTS of action! I would actually rate these films a 10+---------
Simply thrilled that they put these Westerns out on DVD!!"

"I got this box set for Christmas this year. I wanted it mostly for Glenn Ford's version of Cimmaron and Escape from Fort Bravo. These two films are the best of the 6, although Saddle the Wind is also very good. The law and jake wade was very disappointing. I am a huge Richard Widmark fan but this one misses the mark, mostly because of Robert Taylor, who is not a good western actor but is in 3 of the 6 films in this set.
The Stalking Moon is ok, but should not be in this box set. Many Rivers To Cross is a terrible movie. If you can buy Cimmaron and Escape from Fort Bravo separate, I would suggest doing so. A better deal would be to buy this set on sale somewhere. It is not worth the 50 bucks, but Cimmaron and Escape from Fort Bravo are amazing movies.
There is also no special features and no chapter selection on any of the DVD's in this set. For such a high price, the menu's are very cheap and look like something out of the public domain. You would be better off buying these western sets:
Classic Western Round-Up, Vol. 1 (The Texas Rangers / Canyon Passage / Kansas Raiders / The Lawless Breed)
Classic Western Round-Up, Vol. 2 (The Texans / California / The Cimarron Kid / The Man from the Alamo)
Fox Western Classics (Rawhide / The Gunfighter / Garden of Evil)
Hope you find this review helpful."
Nice package for a nice price!

"Even though I like Westerns, I can't say the movies in this package are all excellent; they range from good to maybe very good at best.
Warner does its job again and the picture quality is very nice and aspect ratios preserved. If you like actors like Robert Taylor, William Holden and Glenn Ford, and Gregory Peck, you may want to consider getting this box set since it also has a good price.
Considering everything, I gave the package 4 stars but the movies would get between 3 and 4 stars from me."
