Gunfight At The O.K. Corral:
A gang of ruthless outlaws... a pair of larger-than-life heroes... a timeless tale of good versus evil. Blended together, the result is a sprawling, epic adventure bigger than wild frontier - Gunfight at the O.K. Corral! Acclaimed actors Burt Lancaster and Kirk Douglas team up to rid Tombstone, Arizona of the murderous Clanton gang in this all-star, action-packed classic. When lawman Wyatt Earp (Lancaster) and gunfighter John "Doc" Holliday (Douglas) ride into town, they find themselves pitted against one of the biggest foes ever encountered, in the form of Ike Clanton (Lyle Bettger) and his ruthless gang. It isn't long before the confrontation explodes into a survival-at-all-costs battle, with Rhonda Flemming, Jo Van Fleet, John Ireland, Dennis Hopper, DeForest Kelley, Martin Milner and Lee Van Cleef among those swept into the drama and excitement of one of the Wild West's most legendary events!

Seven Oscar nominations were the result as celebrated director Martin Ritt (The Front, Sounder, Norma Rae) guided Paul Newman to an Academy Award-nominated performance as Hud Bannon, the rebellious son of a respectable rancher who's continually at odds with his aging father. Patricia Neal (The Fountainhead, Breakfast at Tiffany's) and Melvyn Douglas (Nontchka, Being There) co-star, in their Oscar-winning roles.

Once Upon A Time In The West:
Now, for the first time, Sergio Leone's original uncut version of this monumental epic can be seen. The picture itself is as big as its Monument Valley locations, as grand as its fine, distinguished cast, as tough and bawdy as every kid imagines the Old West. Henry Fonda plays the blackest character of his long career, and he's utterly convincing as Frank, the ruthless murderous psychopath who suffers no conscience pangs after annihilating an entire family. Jason Robards is the half-breed falsely accused of the terrible slaughter. Charles Bronson plays The Man, who remembers how his brother was savagely tortured.
