Once in a long while someone in a marketing department somewhere comes up with a good idea. The John Wayne, John Ford Film Collection is just such an idea. The simple virtue of packaging all of the Wayne/Ford oeuvre into one boxed set and making it affordable was a commendable start.
The John Wayne, John Ford Film Collection is comprised of: The Searchers Ultimate Edition - Stagecoach Two-Disc Special Edition - Fort Apache - The Long Voyage Home - The Wings of Eagles - She Wore a Yellow Ribbon - They Were Expendable - 3 Godfathers. John Wayne as Ethan Edwards in The Searchers and as The Ringo Kid in Stagecoach are worth the price of the boxed set.
This is a wonderful gift for yourself or for someone you know who is a fan of the western or of Duke Wayne and/or John Ford. They really don’t get any better than this as boxed sets go
