Winchester 73It's the legendary James Stewart at his leading-man finest in this timeless western that set the standard for all that followed. Frontiersman Lin McAdam (Stewart) is attempting to track down both his father's murderer and his one-of-a-kind rifle the Winchester '73 as it passes among a diverse group of desperate characters including a crazed highwayman (Dan Duryea) an immoral gunrunner (John McIntire) a savage young Indian chief (Rock Hudson) and McAdam's own murderous brother (Stephen McNally). Featuring Shelley Winters as the rifle's only rival... for McAdam's interest and Tony Curtis in one of his first screen performances the gripping tale of the men (and gun) who won the West is one of Stewart's most memorable films and one of the genre's most enduring classics.ShenandoahWith the integrity and depth of an epic Shenandoah tells the dramatic story of a man caught in a dilemma.

A triple bill of James Stewart Westerns. In 'Winchester 73' (1950), cowboy Lin McAdam (Stewart) wins a Winchester rifle in a shooting competition, only for it to be stolen by his opponent, his arch-enemy Dutch Henry Mann (Stephen McNally). McAdam sets off in pursuit of his adversary, determined to settle a feud that dates back many years. In the Civil War drama 'Shenandoah' (1965), Stewart plays Charlie Anderson, a wealthy farmer in Virginia who has hitherto steadfastly refused to take any part in the war that is raging around him. But the war inevitably ensnares him through a series of family tragedies that includes his youngest son (Philip Alford) being taken prisoner by the Unionists and charged with spying, his son James (Patrick Wayne) and daughter-in-law Ann (Katharine Ross) being murdered by a gang of looters, and the death of his eldest son Jacob (Glenn Corbett). Meanwhile his daughter, Jannie (Rosemary Forsyth) falls in love with a Confederate soldier, Sam (Doug McClure). Finally, in 'Bend in the River' (1952), Glyn McLyntock (Stewart) is a man with a past. As he attempts to help a group of Missouri settlers cross the Oregon Trail to the Columbia River Basin, he is double-crossed by Emerson Cole (Arthur Kennedy), the man he thought of as a friend. However, he finds assistance in the form of farmer's daughter Laura Baile (Julie Adams) and San Franciscan gambler Trey Wilson (Rock Hudson).
