The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance
Behind the camera? John Ford, a director whose name is synonymous with "Westerns". Gathered in front of it? An ideal cast – James Stewart, John Wayne, Vera Miles and Lee Marvin. Now presented on Blu-ray Disc, The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance rides into town as a classic entry in Paramount's long line of action-packed Westerns. Director Ford brings us to the lawless frontier village of Shinbone, a town plagued by a larger-than-life nemesis, Liberty Valance (Marvin). Stewart plays the bungling but charming big-city lawyer determined to rid Shinbone of Valance, and he finds that he has an unlikely ally in the form of a rugged local rancher (Wayne). The two men also share the same love interest (Miles). But when the final showdown becomes inevitable, one of the two will attempt to get the gunman... and the other one will wind up getting the gal.
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.
Directed by Henry Hathaway (True Grit), an acknowledged master of the western, the story has a dual theme; not only is this a he-mans story, but it is also a drama of the maternal influence of Katie Elder, movingly portrayed from beginning to conclusion.
