  • The Virginian [DVD] The Virginian | DVD | (09/02/2015) from £2.63  |  Saving you £13.36 (83.60%)  |  RRP £15.99

    Trace Adkins (The Lincoln Lawyer), Ron Perlman (TV's Sons of Anarchy ) and Brendan Penny (Ring Of Fire) star in this gritty and riveting re-imagining of the classic Western saga. Raised by powerful cattle baron Judge Henry (Perlman), South, aka The Virginian (Adkins), lives his life as a ranch enforcer with bravery and steely determination. When a big-city writer (Penny) raises questions about the fierce treatment of rustlers, South is quick to defend the brutal realities of the Code of the West. But as he looks deeper into the latest string of rustling and finds his convictions questioned by a pretty new schoolteacher (Victoria Pratt, Mutant X), South begins to wonder if the Judge had ulterior motives in raising him to a life of bloodshed and violence in this explosive, action-loaded epic on the open range.

  • Alvarez Kelly [1966] Alvarez Kelly | DVD | (01/10/2001) from £4.72  |  Saving you £8.27 (63.70%)  |  RRP £12.99

    Alvarez Kelly (1966) doesn't really justify the description of "Western Classic" which Columbia Tristar attach to it, but it's a pleasant enough Western directed by Edward Dmytryk. The rather convoluted plot (adventurer plays one side off against the other on a cattle drive from Mexico during the Civil War) relies heavily on the charm of the two stars, William Holden and Richard Widmark, but the two prove as reliable as ever. There are some so-so action scenes, but it's the battle of wits between the two principals that supplies all the fireworks. By contrast Janice Rule is just adequate as the love interest. On the DVD: It's a good-looking DVD transfer, with a 1:2.35 aspect ratio and Dolby Digital sound. Subtitles are available in English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Dutch and Polish with dubbing into French, German, Italian and Spanish. For extras there are trailers and some filmographies, so partial as to be not much use. --Ed Buscombe

  • Best Of British Traction Engines [DVD] Best Of British Traction Engines | DVD | (28/10/2013) from £4.58  |  Saving you £10.41 (69.40%)  |  RRP £14.99

    INSIDE STEAM: If you ve ever wondered what makes the steam traction engine tick, then this DVD explains it all. Traction engines in all of their forms, can be seen at any of the hundreds of steam rallies held across the country every summer which honour their role in our past, and celebrate their preservation. The most recognisable form the steam road roller, is joined by other examples such as the ploughing engine, the portable engine and more, that were all built in Britain s great Industrial Age for a special purpose such as ploughing or to provide the power for travelling fairground rides. It s not all just coal and water everything from injectors to steering are studied in this special insight into these surviving grand old ladies of our working past. Take a nostalgic look back at Britain s industrial heritage and the commitment shown by the team s of enthusiasts who dedicate the time to painstakingly restore, display and show these classic vehicles from a bygone era. STEAM INSIGHT: Today a vast variety of steam traction engines can be seen attending the numerous rallies and events staged annually around the country. They bear testimony to the hours of labour and vast amounts of money invested by a dedicated band of enthusiasts who strive to restore and preserve these relics from the past for future generations. In the second half of the 19th century and the early part of the 20th century steam truly ruled supreme and those steam engines designed for use in agriculture and transport are today collectively referred to as traction engines . In this programme we examine the different types of traction engines which were designed and delivered to carry out specific tasks. We study portable engines, general purpose traction engines (sometimes referred to as agricultural engines or threshing engines), ploughing engines, road rollers, steam wagons, road locomotives, steam tractors and the magnificent showmans road locomotive. TRACTION ENGINES ON THE ROAD A huge number of rallies and events are staged annually around Great Britain to commemorate the important part traction engines played in our past, and to celebrate their preservation through to the present day. Their most common uses were for hauling, ploughing, use as a stationary power source and for transportation some may say they were the driving force behind the agricultural revolution when the only alternative prime mover was the work horse. This programme looks at the history of traction engines, their many uses and examines them through to present day where we see them regularly presented at steam fairs and rallies. MORE TRACTION ENGINES ON THE ROAD: The importance of the traction engine to our past is huge it is for this reason that we see traction engines in all their varieties at so many rallies and fairs staged throughout the year. Following on from Traction Engines on the Road , this programme looks at the main variations of the traction engine and its many uses; from the larger than normal road locomotive designed for heavy haulage on public highways to the steam roller which is, by far, the most well known of all. From the portable engine to the ploughing engine and from the steam tractors to the agricultural general purpose engine, we have them all in this programme!

  • The Kentuckian [1955] The Kentuckian | DVD | (01/03/2004) from £5.99  |  Saving you £7.00 (53.90%)  |  RRP £12.99

    Burt Lancaster's one and only feature as star and director, The Kentuckian, has a bedrock American folk tale at its core, but scarcely a clue how to tell it. For all his balletic control as an actor-athlete, Lancaster shows no sense of how a film should move and breathe over an hour and a half, or how to make the characters' growth or changes of mind credible. It's the early 18th century--Monroe is president--and buckskin-clad Lancaster and his son (Donald MacDonald) are lighting out for Texas. "It ain't we don't like people--we like room more." They plan briefly to visit Lancaster's tobacco-dealer brother (John McIntire) in the river town of Humility, and then move on. But there are complications from a long-running feud, and some nasty baiting from a whip-cracking storekeeper (Walter Matthau in his film debut); the need to replace their "Texas money" after buying freedom for a bondservant (Dianne Foster); also the matter of deciding who's prettier, her or the local schoolmarm (Diana Lynn). Lancaster aims for some quaint Americana--a sing-along to the tinkling of a pianoforte, a jaw-dropping riverside production number--and there's one nifty bit of action based on how long it took to reload a flintlock rifle. But mostly this film just lies there in overlit CinemaScope. --Richard T Jameson

  • Three By Rambert [1986] Three By Rambert | DVD | (01/07/2002) from £16.75  |  Saving you £3.24 (16.20%)  |  RRP £19.99

    The Rambert Dance Company first made its name in the 1920s for its creative melding of tradition and innovation. That tenet has remained central to the company's ethos and Three by Rambert showcases its particular strengths to great effect in three highly contrasting ballets. Musically, we have three utterly different scores: Janacek’s searing Second String Quartet (subtitled "Intimate Letters", from which the ballet adapts its name), the moody, evocative songs of Bill Withers and, finally, a medley of folk songs from various climes. Though stylistically at odds, all three explore the twin themes of desire and loss. The other link is that, heard in isolation, none of these pieces seems remotely danceable. It’s a tribute both to the choreography (Robert North in the jazz ballet "Lonely Town" , the company's artistic director Christopher Bruce in the remaining two) and to the dancers themselves that the results are so stunningly effortless. Time and again, you’re struck not simply by the liquid perfection of both solo and ensemble work, but by the directness of the physical language, and the depth of emotions expressed. A brilliant showcase for one of the cultural treasures of our age. On the DVD: Three by Rambert has good sound and excellent picture, with the 16:9 format doing full justice to the different visuals encapsulated by the three ballets. The booklet is useful for basic information, though more analysis of the works would have been helpful for non-experts. Rather than 14 minutes of trailers for other titles, an introduction to the work of the company, and maybe to the ballets themselves, would have been more helpful and user-friendly.--Harriet Smith

  • Chief Crazy Horse [DVD] Chief Crazy Horse | DVD | (09/05/2016) from £6.15  |  Saving you £6.84 (52.70%)  |  RRP £12.99

    Legendary Native American Chief Crazy Horse is betrayed by his rival who tells the white men there's gold in the tribe's sacred burial ground As a new gold rush begins, and old treaties are ignored, the Sioux tribe's war with the fork-tongued white man begins again with new ferocity. Crazy Horse (Victor Mature) leads his braves into battle time and again in the treacherous build up to the historic Battle of the Little Big Horn (otherwise known as Custer's Last Stand). Told entirely from the Native American perspective, this is the enthralling story of a truly great, visionary warrior and a principled leader much misunderstood by history.

  • True Grit/The Sons Of Katie Elder/The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance True Grit/The Sons Of Katie Elder/The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance | DVD | (06/10/2008) from £6.39  |  Saving you £6.60 (50.80%)  |  RRP £12.99

    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...

  • Lord of the Dance [1996] Lord of the Dance | DVD | (01/10/1999) from £23.80  |  Saving you £-7.81 (-48.80%)  |  RRP £15.99

    Billed as an updating and retelling of an Irish folk legend, Lord of the Dance is less Erin Go Bragh than Hooray for Hollywood. Michael Flatley gives us the old razzle-dazzle, fashioning a Celtic-influenced spectacular that wanders far away from its Riverdance roots. The light-show presentation is closer kin to another contemporary Irish musical group, U2. Flatley himself has gone designer chic, too: with close-cropped haircut, earring, buffed abs and tight black pants he bears more than a passing resemblance to Bono. But you have to hand it to the guy--he works hard for the money, as does his attractive corps. The one maddening aspect of this glitzy, entertaining 90-minute festival is the overzealous editing. No image remains on screen for more than a few seconds. Neither Flatley nor his talented troupe deserves to have such craftsmanship sliced and diced like an MTV music video.--Richard Natale, Amazon.com

  • Support Your Local Sheriff [1969] Support Your Local Sheriff | DVD | (05/07/2004) from £6.79  |  Saving you £6.20 (47.70%)  |  RRP £12.99

  • The War Wagon - Westerns Collection 2011 [DVD] The War Wagon - Westerns Collection 2011 | DVD | (30/05/2011) from £5.59  |  Saving you £4.40 (44.00%)  |  RRP £9.99

    John Wayne and Kirk Douglas make a delightful duo in this comedic Western in which Wayne seeks revenge on a ruthless mine owner (Bruce Cabot) who had him framed and sent to prison. Upon his release, Wayne recruits Douglas in a scheme to raid and rob one of Cabot's gold-laden wagons, despite the fact that Douglas had been offered good money to kill Wayne. He joins Wayne instead (the potential profits being much greater), and they set out to ambush the War Wagon, so named because it's heavily armored, mounted with a Gatling gun, and guarded by a dozen gunmen on horses. Costarring Keenan Wynn and Howard Keel as a wise-cracking Indian, The War Wagon was a Western precursor to the action buddy films of the 1980s and '90s, serving up plenty of exciting action and constant comic relief. The interplay between Wayne and Douglas is sharp and sarcastic, and their motley crew of accomplices provides yet another source of character-driven humour. Not one of the greatest Westerns ever made, but certainly one of the most lightly entertaining. --Jeff Shannon

  • Westerns Collection [DVD] Westerns Collection | DVD | (19/09/2011) from £14.95  |  Saving you £25.04 (62.60%)  |  RRP £39.99

    Titles Comprise: Pale Rider: In Pale Rider Clint Eastwood returned to the saddle after nine years and Western movies were riding high again. After corporate mining boss Coy LaHood (Richard Dysart) begins a campaign of terror to drive independent pan miners out of the area a nameless stranger called Preacher (Eastwood) rides into the underdog's camp. He becomes their avenger. The tycoon then hires a badge-wearing killer and his duster-shrouded deputies men loyal to whoever pays the most. LaHood pays gold. But in a climactic shootout to remember Preacher pays in lead. The Searchers: With The Searchers John Wayne and director John Ford forged an indelible saga of the frontier and the men and women who challenged it. Wayne plays Ethan Edwards an ex-Confederate who sets out to find his niece captured by Comanches who massacred his family. He won't surrender to hunger thirst the elements or loneliness. And in his obsessive quest Ethan finds something unexpected: his own humanity. One of the most influential movies ever made. Outlaw Josey Wales: As the Outlaw Josey Wales Clint Eastwood is ideal as a wary fast drawing loner akin to the Man with No Name from his European Westerns. But unlike that other mythic outlaw Josey Wales has a name and a heart. That heart open up as the action unfolds. After avenging his family's brutal murder Wales is pursued by a pack of killers. He prefers to travel alone but ragtag outcasts are drawn to him - and Wales can't bring himself to leave them unprotected. One of the top Westerns ever. The Wild Bunch: They came too late and stayed too long. Director Sam Peckinpah's film The Wild Bunch a powerful tale of hangdog desperados bound by a code of honor rates as one of the all-time greatest Westerns. In 1994 it was restored to a complete pristine condition unseen since its July 1969 theatrical debut - and this digitally remastered anamorphic transfer showcases it to renewed blood-and-thunder effect. Watch William Holden Ernest Borgnine Robert Ryan and more great stars saddle up for the roles of a lifetime. Pat Garrett And Billy The Kid: Best of enemies. Deadliest of friends. They are fast friends and worse foes. One is Billy the Kid (Kris Kristofferson) a law unto himself. The other is the law: Sheriff Pat Garrett (James Coburn) who once rode with Billy. Set to a bristling score by Bob Dylan (who also plays Billy's sidekick Alias) and with a `Who's Who' of iconic Western players Sam Peckinpah's saga of one of the West's great legends is now restored to its intended glory. For the first time since it left the cutting room the film has the balance of action and character development Peckinpah wanted a mix of fury and elegy based on the director's notes and the insights of colleagues.
