Movie Reviews

Legends of the wide open spaces
Annie Van Auken | Planet Earth | 09/15/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"WESTERN LEGENDS 50 MOVIE PACK is an outstanding box set from MILL CREEK of vintage titles that for the most part haven't been previously released by this manufacturer. The exceptions are four early John Wayne films and one from Roy Rogers. There are however four Rogers movies here not on any other MILL CREEK DVD package. There's a "new" Gene Autry movie, too!

"The Legend of the Lone Ranger" is a 1952 theatrical feature that was created by editing together the first three episodes of the Lone Ranger TV series. "Buckskin Frontier" has a cast of several established and future Hollywood heavyweights (see below). Olympic superstar Jim Thorpe plays a henchman in "Frontier Scout." Drew Barrymore's dad (John Jr.) stars in "High Lonesome." Jim Backus (Mr. Magoo/Thurston Howell III) does his western turn in "The Naked Hills." Rita Hayworth makes an early screen appearance in "Trouble in Texas," as Rita Cansino.

Also included are several Tom Tyler films, and works by Hoot Gibson, Buck Jones, Ken and Kermit Maynard, Tex Ritter, Johnny Mack Brown and more. WESTERN LEGENDS is truly a Who's Who of early to mid 20th Century cowboy stars, and a superb addition to any western movie library.

MILL CREEK's WESTERN CLASSICS 100 MOVIE PACK is the perfect companion to this DVD set.

Outstanding Set of Seldom Seen B-Western Films and Stars
David Bassler | Richmond, VA USA | 08/18/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This DVD box set is a real treat for fans of the B-Western. Mill Creek Entertainment's 50 Movie Pack features many Western stars of the 30s and 40s whose work we don't see much of these days, for example: Hoot Gibson, Bob Steele, Tom Tyler and Kermit Maynard, as well as sagebrush trios like The Range Busters (Ray "Crash" Corrigan, John "Dusty" King and Max "Alibi" Terhune) and the Rough Riders (Buck Jones, Tim McCoy and Raymond Hatton). Not to worry, folks - John Wayne, Roy Rogers and Gene Autry get their due as well. Most of the films included are not to be found in other packages of Public Domain films and there are no spaghetti westerns in this set, either.

As fans of these public domain sets already know, the print quality of these films ranges from very good to merely passable - but don't let that stop ya, buckaroo - these films are a real treat no matter what the condition, especially when you consider the price.

Films included in this set are:

"This was exactly what I expected and wanted. Most movies are from the 1930's with various actors and studios. A really good study of B westerns of that era."
Western Legends 50 Movie Pack

(4 out of 5 stars)

"The Western Legends 50 Movie Pack is a must for any fan of westerns of yesteryear. This package includes a lot of western actors that I haven't seen in years and a few I had forgotten. These are classic westerns that will bring back memories and also take you back in time when you did not have to be concerned with offensive language, illicit sex, and blood and guts found in so many movies today."
