Here is my review in which I received my copy a day early, thank you Amazon! Again, Shout Factory! has produced another great set of Westerns and this set includes four 50s Westerns. All movies are in Full screen format. There isn't any special features and the disk is only one-sided. I wish Shout would've at least added some movie information like run time for each movie and color either on the back or on the inside.
Here is the list of the movies on this set: -The Lone Gun (1954/color/74mins) George Montgomery, Dorothy Malone, Frank Faylen, Neville Brand; Directed by Ray Nazarro -Ride out For Revenge (1958/b&w/77mins) Rory Calhoun, Gloria Grahame, Lloyd Bridges, Joanne Gilbert; Directed by Bernard Girard -Gunsight Ridge (1957/b&w/85mins) Joel McCrea, Mark Stevens, Joan Weldon, Slim Pickens; Directed by Francis D. Lyon -Gun Belt (1953/color/78mins) George Montgomery, Tab Hunter, Helen Westcott, John Dehner, Jack Elam; Directed by Ray...
Oh, western fans, four westerns in a row to such a fine price. Two of them are in black and white and the picture quality is super. Two are in color and they are also very fine prints though now and then a bit unsharp. These kind of westerns which dominated the fifties and were the kind they showed in sunday matinee theaters in Denmark, Europe when I was a kid are not big budget John Ford films. Neither are they b-westerns like those starring Bob Steele, Buck Jones, Tom Tyler and many, many more ( I think b-westerns are the most charming of westerns ). No, they are something in between, some call them middle budget westerns and they certainly can be great too. "Ride out for Revenge" with Rory Calhoun is a bit weak because it tackles with the serious historical problem of moving the Cheyennes from their home country to Oklahoma and that is too much for the genre. But enjoy Lloyd Bridges as a drinking cowardly officer. The other three films are super. Enjoy Joel McCrea's usual...
This set of four fine little Westerns from the 1950s comes to us from Shout! Factory at an almost unbelievable price. Other reviewers have offered details on the casts and action. I can only second the rave reviews they give: this four film set gives us two George Montgomery color classics, including what may be his best outing, GUN BELT, an unheralded Rory Calhoun oater (RIDE OUT FOR REVENGE), and a fine Joel McCrea vehicle (GUNSIGHT RIDGE), these latter two in great black & white prints. These films were released by United Artists/MGM, and Shout! Factory has apparently secured DVD release rights from them. The result is a delight, highly recommended for those (like me) who cannot get enough of good, ole' Western action! Perhaps the folks at Shout! Factory will locate some other fine Westerns (from the 1950s?) to release. There are a goodly number still in the vaults. In any case, don't hesitate on this one...picture quality on each of the four is just fine.
