John Wayne 14-movie set Home Entertainment Release John Wayne Essential 14-Movie Collection: John Wayne: Movies &  TV

An American hero and icon, Wayne had an epic, 50-year film career in which he played the lead in over 140 films. He was nominated for three Academy Awards, winning Best Actor for his performance in True Grit.

This new release represents Paramount’s biggest John Wayne collection ever, spanning nearly 25 years of his storied career and his final lead role in The Shootist. There are plenty of fan favorites and a few off the beaten path that fit perfectly to encapsulate his career.

The collection, unfortunately, only comes in DVD format. Why there isn’t a Blu Ray or 4K restoration being released is beyond me.

The films included are:

  • Hondo (1953)
  • Island in the Sky (1953)
  • The High and Mighty (1954)
  • The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance (1962)
  • Hatari! (1962)
  • Donovan’s Reef (1963)
  • McLintock! (1963)
  • In Harm’s Way (1965)
  • The Sons of Katie Elder (1965)
  • El Dorado (1966)
  • True Grit (1969)
  • Rio Lobo (1970)
  • Big Jake (1971)
  • The Shootist (1976)

With no special feature disc or added bonus content, this is solely to round out your collection and only for fans of the Big Man himself.
