  • Great Indian Railway Journeys: Series 1 [DVD] Great Indian Railway Journeys: Series 1 | DVD | (30/04/2018) from £13.99  |  Saving you £N/A (N/A%)  |  RRP £N/A

    Following his phenomenally successful series exploring the railways of Britain, Continental Europe and the USA, this captivating new series sees Michael Portillo embarking on a fresh adventure as he takes to the tracks of one of the world's largest and most spectacular rail networks. Steered by his 1913 copy of Bradshaw's Handbook of Indian, Foreign and Colonial Travel, Michael makes four journeys through an extraordinarily varied landscape of mountains, deserts and plains, encountering Maharajas and Mughals, visiting exquisite palaces and temples and discovering India's vibrant cities.

  • The Quiet Man [DVD] [1952] The Quiet Man | DVD | (03/06/2013) from £4.69  |  Saving you £5.30 (53.10%)  |  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.

  • How Green Was My Valley [DVD] [1941] How Green Was My Valley | DVD | (09/04/2012) from £4.99  |  Saving you £5.00 (50.10%)  |  RRP £9.99

    John Ford's beautiful, heartfelt drama about a close-knit family of Welsh coal miners is one of the greatest films of Hollywood's golden age--a gentle masterpiece that beat Citizen Kane in the Best Picture race for the 1941 Academy Awards. The picture also won Oscars for Best Director (Ford), Best Supporting Actor (Donald Crisp), Best Art Direction, and Best Cinematography; all of those awards were richly deserved, even if they came at the expense of Kane and Orson Welles. Based on the novel by Richard Llewellyn, the film focuses its eventful story on 10-year-old Huw (Roddy McDowall), youngest of seven children to Mr. and Mrs. Morgan (Donald Crisp, Sarah Allgood), a hardy couple who've seen the best and worst of times in their South Wales mining town. They're facing one of the worst times as Mr. Morgan refuses to join a miners union whose members have begun a long-term strike. Family tensions grow and Huw must learn many of life's harsher lessons under the tutelage of the local preacher (Walter Pidgeon), who has fallen in love with Huw's sister (Maureen O'Hara). As various crises are confronted and devastating losses endured, How Green Was My Valley unfolds as a rich, moving portrait of family strength and integrity. It's also a nod to a simpler, more innocent time--and to the preciousness of memory and the inevitable passage from youth to adulthood. An all-time classic, not to be missed. --Jeff Shannon

    Titles Comprise:The Alamo:John Wayne produces, directs and stars in this larger than life chronicle of one of the most remarkable events in American history. At the Alamo - a crumbling adobe mission - 185 exceptional men joined together in a sacred pact: they would stand firm against an army of 7,000 and willingly give their lives for freedom. Filmed entirely in Texas only a few miles from the site of the actual battle, The Alamo, is a visually stunning and historically accurate celebration of courage and honour.Co-starring Richard Widmark, Laurence Harvey and Chill Wills, and garnering seven Oscar nominations, it is a truly memorable movie spectacle.Horse Soldiers: John Wayne teams with William Holden and eminent western director John Ford for this frontier actioner. Written by John Lee Mahin and Martin Rackin, this faithful representation of one of the most daring cavalry exploits in history is both a moving tribute to the men who fought and died in that bloody war, and a powerful, action-packed drama.Based on an actual Civil War incident, The Horse Soldiers tells the rousing tale of a troop of Union Soldiers who force their way deep into Southern territory to destroy a rebel stronghold at Newton Station. In command is hardbitten Colonel Marlowe (Wayne), a man who is strikingly contrasted by the company's gentle surgeon (Holden) and the beautiful but crafty Southern belle (Constance Towers) who's forced to accompany the Union raiders on perhaps the most harrowing mission in the war. Two great stars strike sparks from each other as Wayne's character is strikingly contrasted with Doc, William Holden's pacifistic company surgeon. With its rousing musical score, The Horse Soldiers is a moving tribute to those who fought in the brutal cavalry exploits of the US Civil War. Red River: John Wayne is Tom Dunson, a cattle baron who built his ranch with hard work and a determination to kill any man who would dare try to take his land. But when plummeting livestock values endanger his beloved ranch, Tom and his adopted son set out to get a fair price for their cattle by driving them through the treacherous Chisholm Trail from Texas to Kansas.Battling Indians, stampedes and dissention among the ranch hands, Tom proves that he'll stop at nothing to reach his destination. He'll risk danger, hardship, betrayal and perhaps even his own sanity...

    "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

  • Two Rode Together (1961) [Masters of Cinema] Dual Format (Blu-ray & DVD) edition Two Rode Together (1961) Dual Format (Blu-ray & DVD) edition | Blu Ray | (13/03/2017) from £9.99  |  Saving you £N/A (N/A%)  |  RRP £N/A

    The first collaboration between James Stewart and director John Ford produced this thrilling and darkly complex Western that easily ranks among Ford s best work, yet remains one of his most overlooked. Stewart plays gloriously against type as Marshal Guthrie McCabe, a cynical and amoral U.S. Marshal assigned to trade guns with the fearsome Comanche in exchange for hostages, with the promise of a large reward if he is successful. McCabe and old friend Lieutenant Jim Gary (Richard Widmark, Pickup on South St, Kiss of Death) set out to track down the Comanche and their captives, with tragic consequences for all involved. With a screenplay by Frank Nugent (The Searchers) and cinematography by Charles Lawton Jr. (The Lady from Shanghai, 3:10 to Yuma), Two Rode Together was one of the first Westerns to recognize the dignity and value of the Native American way of life and the Masters of Cinema series is proud to present the film on Blu-ray for the first time in the UK in a special Dual-Format edition. SPECIAL DUAL FORMAT FEATURES including: Stunning High-Definition presentation Uncompressed monaural soundtrack on the Blu-ray Isolated music and effects track Rebirth A New and exclusive video essay on the film by Ford expert and scholar Tag Gallagher PLUS: A BOOKLET featuring new writing on the film.
