  • The Quiet Man [DVD] [1952] The Quiet Man | DVD | (03/06/2013) from £4.39  |  Saving you £5.60 (56.10%)  |  RRP £9.99

    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

  • Stagecoach (B/W) [DVD] Stagecoach (B/W) | DVD | (19/05/2007) from £5.29  |  Saving you £0.70 (11.70%)  |  RRP £5.99

    Considered to be one of the most influential films of all-time Hollywood legend John Wayne and director John Ford come together in this Oscar winning western which proved a tour de force for both men. At the dustbowl town of Tonto Arizona a motley group of characters board a east-bound stagecoach heading for Lordsburg New Mexico. Between them and their destination lies hostile Indian country hunting ground of Apache Chief Geronimo and his braves. The journey is further complicated as elaborate deceptions are weaved and the reason for each passenger's place upon the stagecoach becomes clear. When it comes to a star-studded action-packed classic they don't come much bigger or better than this.

  • True Grit [Blu-ray] True Grit | Blu Ray | (07/02/2011) from £7.69  |  Saving you £12.30 (61.50%)  |  RRP £19.99

    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

  • The Green Berets [1968] The Green Berets | DVD | (22/02/1999) from £3.59  |  Saving you £9.46 (67.60%)  |  RRP £13.99

    Anyone who fought in Vietnam can tell you that the war bore little resemblance to this propagandistic action film starring and codirected by John Wayne. But Green Berets itself is not nearly as bad as its reputation would suggest; critics roasted its gung-ho politics while ignoring its merits as an exciting (if rather conventional and idealistic) war movie. Some notorious mistakes were made--in the final shot, the sun sets in the east!--and it's an awkward attempt to graft WWII heroics onto the Vietnam experience. But as the Duke's attempt to acknowledge the men who were fighting and dying overseas, it's a rousing film in which Wayne commands a regiment on a mission to kidnap a Viet Cong general. David Janssen plays a journalist who learns to understand Wayne's commitment to battling Communism, and Jim Hutton (Timothy's dad) plays an ill-fated soldier who adopts a Vietnamese orphan. --Jeff Shannon

  • The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance [Blu-ray] [1962][Region Free] The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance | Blu Ray | (03/06/2013) from £7.69  |  Saving you £12.30 (61.50%)  |  RRP £19.99

    "When the legend becomes fact, print the legend." That's more than the code of a newspaperman in The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance; it's practically the operating credo of director John Ford, the most honoured of American filmmakers. In this late film from a long career, Ford looks at the civilising of an Old West town, Shinbone, through the sad memories of settlers looking back. In the town's wide-open youth, two-fisted Westerner John Wayne and tenderfoot newcomer James Stewart clash over a woman (Vera Miles) but ultimately unite against the notorious outlaw Liberty Valance (Lee Marvin). Ford's nostalgia for the past is tempered by his stark approach, unusual for the visual poet of Stagecoach and The Searchers. The two heavyweights, Wayne and Stewart, are good together, with Wayne the embodiment of rugged individualism and Stewart the idealistic prophet of the civilisation that will eventually tame the Wild West. The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance may be the saddest Western ever made, closer to an elegy than an action movie, and as cleanly beautiful as its central symbol, the cactus rose. --Robert Horton

    Relive the thrills of these classic Wayne westerns in this specially packaged boxset. StagecoachOne of the all-time classic Westerns - considered by many to be the movie that propelled John Wayne to stardom in 1939. The film is set against the impressive backdrop of Monument Valley in Utah and tells the story of a mixed group of travellers who are making their way across the country to Arizona. They are endangered by an Indian War Party which along with their personal histories results in difficulties. Paying particular attention to the character studies of the group Stagecoach is a taut psychological piece that earned several Oscar nominations and wins. Rio GrandeLt. Col. Kirby Yorke (John Wayne) is the hard-riding hero of the US cavalry patrolling the badlands of the Mexican Border - a lonely and dangerous command. One of his men happens to be his own son (Claude Jarman Jr.). When the Colonel&#39;s estranged wife (Maureen O&#39;Hara) suddenly arrives at the fort Yorke finds himself having to deal with another formidable adversary! Yet the threat of Indian attack is never far away and soon the two men must face the danger of the Rio Grande... Fort ApacheThe first of John Ford&#39;s trilogy of cavalry movies set during America&#39;s struggle against the Apache Indian. Henry Fonda plays the stubborn Colonel Thursday whose textbook methods of warfare appear pure suicide to everyone but him. John Wayne stars as Captain York a soldier experienced in Apache warfare from whom Thursday will take no advice. The film builds to the inevitable confrontation with the Apache masses and Thursday leads his men into the lions&#39; den. Rooster CogburnTwo of the most popular stars in screen history are brought together for the first time in the adventure-filled follow-up to True Grit.

Katharine Hepburn joins him as the prim Eula Goodnight a missionary who pairs up with the grizzled gunfighter to avenge the death of her father. While in pursuit of the outlaws a tender-hearted relationship develops between the rough-and-tumble lawman and the flinty reverend&#39;s daughter as they join forces to secure justice in the untamed west.

  • The Shootist [1976] The Shootist | DVD | (06/06/2005) from £4.86  |  Saving you £8.13 (62.60%)  |  RRP £12.99

    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
