Titles comprise:

Hondo: Wayne plays Hondo Lane, a cavalry rider who becomes the designated protector of the strong-willed Angie Lowe (Geraldine Page) as well as a father figure to her boy, Johnny (Lee Aaker). Angie, determinedly awaiting the return of her brutish husband (Leo Gordon), refuses to leave their homestead despite the growing danger from nearby warring Native American tribes. And she finds herself growing more and more enthralled with this stranger, Hondo - a man hardened by experience but still capable of sympathy, kindness and love.

McLintock!: Cattle baron, banker, and model citizen George McLintock has the world in his hands. The only thing missing is his wife, Katherine, who left him two years earlier, suspecting him of adultery.

True Grit: The cantankerous Rooster is hired by a headstrong young girl (Kim Darby) to find the man who murdered her father and fled with the family savings. When Cogburn's employer insists on accompanying the old gunfighter, sparks fly. And the situation goes from troubled to disastrous when the inexperienced but enthusiastic Texas Ranger (Glen Campbell) joins the party.

Rio Lobo: The time is just after the end of the Civil War. Wayne is Union Colonel Cord McNally, who is teamed with two Confederate soldiers he captured during the war in order to take down a thieving bootlegger. Their travels take them to a small town being held in terror by an evil Sheriff. McNally and his crew decide to help the townspeople with their own brand of justice...

El Dorado: Robert Mitchum plays to perfection an alchoholic but gutsy sheriff who relentlessly battles the dark side of the wild West, ruthless cattle barons and crooked "businessmen." The Duke gives an equally adept performance as the sheriff's old friend who knows his way around a gunfight.

Big Jake: John Wayne is Jacob McCandles, an ageing cowboy in an Old West that is on the verge of modernization. When his eight-year-old grandson is kidnapped by a violent gang led by the evil John Fain (Richard Boone), Jacob's estranged wife (Maureen O'Hara) enlists his help to rescue the boy. Jacob and his three sons (one of whom is portrayed by Wayne's real-life son Patrick) set out to bring the gang to justice.

The Shootist: Afflicted with a terminal illness, John Bernard Books, the last of the legendary gunfighters, quietly returns to Carson City for medical attention from his old friend Dr. Hostetler. Aware that his days are numbered, the troubled man seeks solace and peace in a boardinghouse run by a widow and her son. However, it is not Books' fate to die in peace, as he becomes embroiled in one last valiant battle.

The Sons Of Katie Elder: Katie Elder bore four sons. The day she is buried they all return home to Clearwater, Texas, to pay their last respects. John Wayne is the eldest and toughest son, the gunslinger. Tom (Dean Martin) is good with a deck of cards and good with a gun when he has to be. Matt (Earl Holliman) is the quiet one - nobody ever called him yellow... twice. Bud (Michael Anderson, Jr.) is the youngest. Any hope for respectability lies with him.

The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance: Jimmy Stewart plays the bungling but charming big-city lawyer determined to rid the fair village of Shinbone of its number one nuisance and Bad Man: Liberty Valance (Lee Marvin). And as if all that weren't enough, the biggest star that ever aimed a six-shooter plays the Man of the title: John Wayne.

ordered thanks!

never seen any of these but always fancied them. get them in at work (morrisons) every year but they are always about £4 or £5 each! plus want to see the original true grit first

Banned

I've never been a Wayne fan but for those who see what I can't this is a good deal.

Great Actor and some corking films here Heat heat Heat !!!

The man who shot liberty valance is superb, not seen the others.

His westerns were better than his other films, went out of fashion for a bit on the ground of his politics (just watch The Green Berets!). It was only watching the remake of True Grit that reminded me how good a lot of his Western's were. What about The Searchers? Nice to have on a miserable day like today, hot

Awesome price, will do for Christmas present for father-in-law

The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance is probably my favourite John Wayne film.

Heat added for the price, worth buying for the classics (True Grit and The man who shot liberty valance) but the rest are some of his weaker westerns, if you have not seen any of his films before (having grown up on a desert island) try Stagecoach, Red River, Fort Apache,She Wore A Yellow Ribbon and Rio Grande etc.

That's thee plan. Wee thread on it here

Shame I missed out on this at such a good price - my 80 year old father loves his westerns and would have enjoyed this collection, even though I think he's already seen them several times before!

Thanks andywedge that will be quite useful, rather than going back and forth to website which is what I have to do in order to post a deal. (unless I'm doing it wrong)!

Just ordered this online about 10 minutes ago, as it said it was back in stock. I've paid and they are now processing my order, however, just looked online again and it now says out of stock once more. It might be worth checking a bit later today if anybody wants this set as more might become available during the day.
