The Western was among the first genres developed by American filmmakers. The picturesque scenery of the American West (located right in Hollywood's backyard) and the dramatic potential of stark confrontations between good and evil proved irresistible, to directors and audiences alike. Today, their efforts loom large in the country's collective unconscious, defining, to a very large extent, what it means to be an American - and the films have lost none of their appeal. This stellar set, starring such immortals as John Wayne, Randolph Scott and Roy Rogers, collects some of the very examples of the genre. "Angel and the Badman": Bad boy Quirt Evens is nursed back to health by a beautiful Quaker named Penelope Worth. Is he willing to give up his bad boy ways to live in her world? "Under California Stars": Rancher Roy (Roy Rogers) and his boys track down a gang who have stolen Trigger and are holding him for ransom. "The Outlaw": Jane Russell stars as Rio in this sultry Western with Walter Huston as Doc Holliday and Jack Buetel stars as Billy the Kid. "Abilene Town": Sheriff tries to stop homesteader conflicts in the West after the Civil War. "Rage at Dawn": A special agent from Chicago is sent out west to bring in the notorious Reno brothers. "Santa Fe Trail": Errol Flynn and Ronald Reagan star in this adventure story of Jeb Stuart, his romance with Kit Carson Holliday, friendship with George Custer and battles against John Brown in the days leading up to the outbreak of the American Civil War.
