The Quiet Man | DVD | (03/06/2013)
from £3.99 | Saving you £5.95 (59.60%) | RRP
Blarney and bliss, mixed in equal proportions. John Wayne plays an American boxer who returns to the Emerald Isle, his native land. What he finds there is a fiery prospective spouse (Maureen O'Hara) and a country greener than any Ireland seen before or since--it's no surprise The Quiet Man won an Oscar for cinematography. It also won an Oscar for John Ford's direction, his fourth such award. The film was a deeply personal project for Ford (whose birth name was Sean Aloysius O'Fearna), and he lavished all of his affection for the Irish landscape and Irish people on this film. He also stages perhaps the greatest donnybrook in the history of movies, an epic fistfight between Wayne and the truculent Victor McLaglen--that's Ford's brother, Francis, as the elderly man on his deathbed who miraculously revives when he hears word of the dustup. Barry Fitzgerald, the original Irish elf, gets the movie's biggest laugh when he walks into the newlyweds' bedroom the morning after their wedding and spots a broken bed. The look on his face says everything. The Quiet Man isn't the real Ireland but as a delicious never-never land of Ford's imagination, it will do very nicely. --Robert Horton

True Grit/The Sons Of Katie Elder/The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance | DVD | (06/10/2008)
from £4.05 | Saving you £8.94 (68.80%) | RRP
True Grit: In 1970 John Wayne earned an Academy Award for his larger-than-life performance as the drunken uncouth and totally fearless one-eyed U.S. Marshal Rooster Cogburn. The cantankerous Rooster is hired by a headstrong young girl (Kim Darby) to find the man who murdered her father and fled with the family savings. When Cogburn's employer insists on accompanying the old gunfighter sparks fly. And the situation goes from troubled to disastrous when the inexperienced but enthusiastic Texas Ranger (Glen Campbell) joins the party. Laughter and tears punctuate the wild action in this extraordinary Western which features performances by Robert Duvall and Strother Martin. The Sons Of Katie Elder: Katie Elder bore four sons. The day she is buried they all return home to Clearwater Texas to pay their last respects. John Wayne is the eldest and toughest son the gunslinger. Tom (Dean Martin) is good with a deck of cards and good with a gun when he has to be. Matt (Earl Holliman) is the quiet one - nobody ever called him yellow... twice. Bud (Michael Anderson Jr.) is the youngest. Any hope for respectability lies with him. Directed by Henry Hathaway (True Grit) an acknowledged master of the western the story has a dual theme; not only is this a he-mans story but it is also a drama of the maternal influence of Katie Elder movingly portrayed from beginning to conclusion. The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance: Ranking with Stagecoach as one of the greatest of its genre 'The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance' is the modern-day Western to beat all Westerns. John Ford whose very name is synonymous with Westerns directed the ideal cast. Jimmy Stewart plays the bungling but charming big-city lawyer determined to rid the fair village of Shinbone of its number one nuisance and Bad Man: Liberty Valance (Lee Marvin). And as if all that weren't enough the biggest star that ever aimed a six-shooter plays the Man of the title: John Wayne. Super-sincere Stewart and rugged rancher Wayne also share the same love interest (Vera Miles). One gets the gunman but the other gets the gal...

Rio Bravo | DVD | (01/06/2006)
from £3.99 | Saving you £10.00 (71.50%) | RRP
When it comes down to naming the best Western of all time, the list usually narrows to three completely different pictures: Howard Hawks' Rio Bravo, Hawks' Red River and John Ford's The Searchers. About the only thing they all have in common is that they all star John Wayne. But while The Searchers is an epic quest for revenge and Red River, a sweeping cattle-drive drama, Rio Bravo is a much calmer film. Basically, it comes down to Sheriff John T Chance (Wayne), his alcoholic friend Dude (Dean Martin), the hotshot new kid Colorado (Ricky Nelson), and deputy-sidekick Stumpy (Walter Brennan), sittin' around in the town jail, drinkin' black coffee, shootin' the breeze, and occasionally singin' a song. Hawks--who, like his pal Ernest Hemingway, lived by the code of "grace under pressure"--said he made Rio Bravo as a rebuke to High Noon, in which sheriff Gary Cooper begged for townspeople to help him. So, Hawks made Wayne's Sheriff Chance a consummate professional--he may be getting old and fat, but he knows how to do his job, and he doesn't want amateurs getting mixed up in his business; they could get hurt. If the configuration of characters sounds familiar, it should: Hawks remade Rio Bravo two more times--as El Dorado in 1967, with Wayne, Robert Mitchum, and James Caan; and as Rio Lobo in 1970, with Wayne, Jack Elam, and Christopher Mitchum. The film achieved additional notoriety in the 90s when Quentin Tarantino revealed that he uses it as a litmus test for prospective girlfriends. --Jim Emerson, Amazon.com

John Wayne hams it up as a one-eyed, broken-down marshal in this 1969 adaptation of Charles Portis's bestselling novel. Kim Darby plays the formal-speaking adolescent who goes to Wayne for help tracking down her father's killer, and singer Glen Campbell straps on his guns to join the quest. Directed by old lion Henry Hathaway (Rawhide), True Grit is largely a showcase for Wayne (who finally won an Oscar), but it is also a decent Western with a particularly stirring final act. --Tom Keogh

Titles Comprise: The Longest Day:On June 6 1944 the Allied Invasion of France marked the beginning of the end of Nazi domination over Europe.

Featuring a stellar international cast and told from the perspectives of both sides it is a fascinating look at the massive preparations mistakes and random events that determined the outcome of one of the biggest battles in history. Winner of two Oscars (Special Effects and Cinematography) the Longest Day ranks as one of Hollywood's truly great war films. A Bridge Too Far: An epic film that re-creates in stunning detail one of the most disastrous battles of World War II (The Hollywood Reporter) A Bridge Too Far is a spectacular war picture. Painstakingly recreated on actual battlefield locations and boasting a remarkable cast that includes Sean Connery Anthony Hopkins Sir Laurence Olivier and Robert Redford 'A Bridge Too Far' accurately recaptures the monumental scope excitement and danger behind one of the biggest military gambles in history. In September 1944 flush with success after the Normandy Invasion the Allies confidently launched Operation Market Garden a wild scheme intended to put an early end to the fighting by invading Germany and smashing the Reich's war plants. But a combination of battlefield politics faulty intelligence bad luck and even worse weather led to the disaster beyond the Allies' darkest fear. Patton:A critically acclaimed film that won a total of eight 1970 Academy Awards (including Best Picture) Patton is a riveting portrait of one of the 20th century's greatest military geniuses. One of its Oscars went to George C. Scott for this triumphant portrayal of George Patton the only Allied general truly feared by the Nazis. Charismatic and flamboyant Patton designed his own uniforms sported ivory-handled six-shooters and believed he was a warrior in past lives. He outmaneuvered Rommel in Africa and after D-Day led his troops in an unstoppable campaign across Europe. But he was as rebellious as well as brilliant and as Patton shows with insight and poignancy his own volatile personality was one enemy he could never defeat.
The Shootist | DVD | (06/06/2005)
from £1.75 | Saving you £9.52 (73.30%) | RRP
The last film of John Wayne, The Shootist, could not have been more fitting, full of details that can't help but make one reflect upon his legacy in the movies and his life as a star. Wayne plays a career gunfighter in the autumn of his life, trying to hang up his pistols after he discovers he's dying of cancer. Boarding in the house of an attractive widow (Lauren Bacall) and her son (Ron Howard), Wayne's character opts for peace in his final days but is dogged by his reputation when a handful of killers seeks him out for a final fight. Howard is fine as a fatherless boy who needs the strong mentor the hero represents, and James Stewart--who costarred with Wayne in the great Man Who Shot Liberty Valance--plays the doctor who gives the big man the bad news. Don Siegel (Invasion of the Body Snatchers) thoughtfully directs a very special and sensitive production. --Tom Keogh

John Wayne -Serial Thrillers | DVD | (01/09/2008)
from £6.95 | Saving you £6.04 (46.50%) | RRP
With a legacy of leading roles in more than 100 movies along with appearances in countless other works John Wayne would have been 101 years old this year (2008). Wayne's career spanned a 50-year period from the pre-Depression '20s to the politically turbulent '70s but the nature of his films has remained relatively constant. As Wayne himself is said to have quipped I play John Wayne in pretty much every film I do and I've done pretty well so far havn't I? This persona served him well through an early career of serials and B-westerns to higher profile roles including more westerns and war films culminating with his Oscar win for best actor in True Grit. Though Wayne a.k.a. the Duke is respectfully remembered by people with different political philosophies the actor was known in his day as a staunch Republican. The actor lost his battle with cancer in 1979 but his large body of work lives on as a testament to this legendary figure. The Hurricane Express: Being one of Wayne's earliest films The Hurricane Express was actually a serial in 12 parts released in 1932. There aren't any cowboys or horses around for this adventure but there's plenty of action! Baby-faced John Wayne plays an airplane pilot whose father a train engineer is killed when some fiend who calls himself The Wrecker causes the Hurricane Express to crash. Baker (Wayne) swears he will catch the man who killed his father however in true western style the villain always has a way of escaping time and time again (largely due to having a number of life-like masks). The good guys and the bad guys are constantly hopping from trains to cars to airplanes and back again but John Wayne never gives up! The Three Musketeers: All for one and one for all in this action-packed 12 part serial adaptation of Alexander Dumas's 'The Three Musketeers'. Tom Wayne (John Wayne) is a fugitive from justice framed for a murder he did not commit. El Shaitan the mysterious and diabolical leader of the Devil's Circle a group who are plotting an Arab rebellion against the Foreign Legion is to blame. It's up to Tom's sweetheart Elaine (Ruth Hall) and the trustworthy Three Musketeers - Clancy (Jack Mulhall) Renard (Raymond Hatton) and Schmidt (Ralph Bushman) - to put an end to his reign of terror and clear Tom's name. Tom and The Three Musketeers narrowly escape death in episode after episode as they saddle up for a Sahara thrill ride in the name of truth justice and brotherhood! Shadow Of The Eagle: A real treat for John Wayne fans. The action and adventure the mystery and suspense is non stop in this original 12 part serial. Wayne plays Craig McCoy a stunt pilot who's part of a traveling fair. When a mysterious pilot known as The Eagle starts making murderous threats with sky-writing our guy jumps into action to try and find this villain. All the performers of the travelling fair get involved in one way or another. Some are prime suspects (for a while) others like the strong man and the ventriloquist use their talents to help catch the criminal. Suspect everyone suspect no one. The upper hand and evidence jumps back and forth between the bad guys and the good guys.
El Dorado | DVD | (06/06/2005)
from £3.98 | Saving you £9.01 (69.40%) | RRP
El Dorado doesn't quite have the scope or ambition of Howard Hawks' greatest Westerns, Red River and Rio Bravo. But this relaxed picture, made near the end of Hawks' marvellous career, still shows the steady, sure hand of a master. Hawks reunites with John Wayne, playing a hired gun mixed up in a range war; Robert Mitchum is Wayne's old pal, now a sheriff in the midst of a hopeless drunken bender. James Caan, in one of his first sizable roles, plays a kid who can't shoot straight and wears a funny hat (every character in the movie makes fun of this hat). As the plot moves along, it begins to resemble Rio Bravo rather closely ("I steal from myself all the time", Hawks was fond of admitting). But in El Dorado the heroes are a bit older, their powers a bit weaker; at the end Wayne must revert to a bit of subterfuge in order to get the drop on the steely gunslinger (ice-cold Christopher George) he needs to put down. As relaxed as the movie is, Hawks and Wayne and company are in good spirits, with plenty of broad humour and easy camaraderie on display. Hawks and Wayne would make just one more film, the disappointing Rio Lobo, before ending their fruitful partnership. --Robert Horton

The Longest Day | DVD | (02/06/2014)
from £7.99 | Saving you £2.00 (20.00%) | RRP
The Longest Day is Hollywood's definitive D-day movie. More modern accounts such as Saving Private Ryan are more vividly realistic, but producer Darryl F Zanuck's epic 1962 account is the only one to attempt the daunting task of covering that fateful day from all perspectives. From the German high command and front-line officers to the French Resistance and all the key Allied participants, the screenplay by Cornelius Ryan, based on his own authoritative book, is as factually accurate as possible. The endless parade of stars (John Wayne, Henry Fonda, Robert Mitchum, Sean Connery, and Richard Burton, to name a few) makes for an uneasy mix of verisimilitude and Hollywood star-power, however, and the film falls a little flat for too much of its three-hour running time. But the set-piece battles are still spectacular, and if the landings on Omaha Beach lack the graphic gore of Private Ryan they nonetheless show the sheer scale and audacity of the invasion. --Mark Walker
