"The JOHN WAYNE: American Hero 10 Movie Pack includes a bonus selection:
"The American West Of John Ford" was a made for TV documentary about the legendary filmmaker, with alternating host duties carried out by Wayne, Henry Fonda and Jimmy Stewart. Filmed on-site at Monument Valley, it's easy to see the long-established camaraderie among these actors as they reminisced with their former director about his production company and days gone by. Ford was clearly looking frail and on the decline, which undoubtedly prompted this retrospective tribute.
The ten public domain movies here have all been previously released by this and other manufacturers. For anyone who may not have John Wayne's earliest westerns, this bargain-priced collection is a great place to start.
An excellent companion to this box set is JOHN WAYNE - COWBOY LEGEND 10 MOVIE PACK, also from MILL CREEK.
