"THE JOHN WAYNE COLLECTION from TGG (aka Diamond Entertainment Group) is five DVDs containing 13 hour-long b&w 'B' westerns that Duke made in the 1930s. You also get one full-length 1960s movie (in color), a TV documentary hosted by Mr. Wayne and a career retrospective. Also included are trivia, data for all films, photos and bios.
These public domain movies have not been restored, so transfer quality is dependent on source material. Anyone familiar with "value-priced" DVD sets should know what to expect here.
For more great old western stars like Hoot Gibson, Tex Ritter, Gene Autry, Ken Maynard, Roy Rogers and Johnny Mack Brown, you can't beat the FRONTIER JUSTICE 50 Movie Pack, from MILL CREEK ENTERTAINMENT.

"Trying to complete my "Wayne" collection, I saw some titles I hadn't seen before. They turned out to be colorized versions of"Dawn Rider", "Paradise Valley" and "Winds of the Wastelands". The color is washed and not very good. To be fair, the original B&W versions are also included. Run away!"
Poor picture quality

"The picture quality was very poor for half of the short movies. The sound quality was excellent."
