In the Academy Award-winning TRUE GRIT, crotchety U.S. Marshal Rooster Cogburn would rather stay at home than chase criminals. He heeds the call, though, when 14-year-old Mattie Ross calls on him to avenge her father's death at the hands of a man who has escaped into Indian territory. The pair are accompanied on their journey by a Texas ranger who has his own motives to serve... In the action-packed Western THE SONS OF KATIE ELDER, three wandering sons return home to attend the funeral of their mother who has been murdered. The brothers then set their sights on the man responsible for her death, as well as for the death of their father six months prior. However, getting revenge won't be easy because the culprit--who has also gained possession of the family's ranch--will stop at nothing to deter them... THE MAN WHO SHOT LIBERTY VALANCE recounts the story of Ransom Stoddard, a politician with an axe to grind. Years earlier, the newly-minted lawyer received a vicious beating from the notorious thug Liberty Valance and was left for dead. Tom Doniphan, a rancher and feared gunman, found Stoddard unconscious and nursed him back to health. As a result, the two men became great friends, despite their differing attitudes towards law and justice. In his capacity as senator, Stoddard vows to rid the small town of Shinbone of undesirables like Valance.

A bargain, particularly if your a Wayne fan.
Three excellent westerns, all totally different from the other. A marvellous assortment of movies for the period.
