Great movies; cheap packaging

"This DVD set is a bit of a mixed bag. On the one hand, you get four good-to-excellent movies. "The Wild Bunch" and "McCabe and Mrs. Miller" are both classics, and "Jeremiah Johnson" and "The Train Robbers" are nice additions. On the other hand, the packaging and presentation are very cheap. Instead of four discs each containing one movie, there are two double-sided discs that seem to have been haphazardly made. I had to immediately take back the first copy of this set I bought and exchange it, because one of the discs was badly scratched.
The sad thing is that this could easily be a 5-star set, especially with the inclusion of "McCabe and Mrs. Miller," which is a very underrated film and possibly Robert Altman's best. I would hope that TCM will pay more attention to the quality of their products in the future."
Great Western Bundle

"I really enjoyed the TCM Greatest Western collection. For the price, having 4 top films bundled together is quite a bargain. Plus, each has extra content which gives the viewer more insight into the selected films. This is a perfect format for people who want to revisit some of the greatest films in various genres."

"I was able to view The Train Robbers but the track for The Wild Bunch has a flaw and we could not watch it. Haven't tried the other movies on this disc."
