Manufacturer: Universal Studios Home Entertainment
With his steely-eyed stare and commanding screen presence, Clint Eastwood turned a handful of Westerns into an exciting new vision of the American West. He began his career playing cowboys on TV and in Spaghetti Westerns, but it was not until Clint partnered with Universal Pictures that the true power and depth of his legend started to grow. The Clint Eastwood: 3-Movie Western Collection reveals the actor as a different breed of gunslinger, facing different kinds of foes. Whether rescuing a band of freedom fighters (Two Mules for Sister Sara), fighting a range war (Joe Kidd) or battling gunmen in a sin-ridden town (High Plains Drifter), no one takes you on an action-packed adventure through the Old West like Clint Eastwood.
Screen legends Gregory Peck (On the Beach) and Richard Widmark (Road House) co-star in this brilliantly cast western epic featuring an unusually fine story and magnificent direction by the great William Wellman (The Ox-Bow Incident) - unleashing dramatic power seldom found in this type of film.

But their deliverance from danger is short-lived when the gang discovers a fateful secret hidden within the dusty, rotting walls of this ghost town - one that will turn brother against brother in a desperate battle to the death! Beautifully shot in glorious black-and-white by Joseph MacDonald (My Darling Clementine) and features a splendid cast that includes Anne Baxter (The Blue Gardenia), John Russell (Fort Massacre) and Harry Morgan (TV s Dragnet and M*A*S*H).Bonus Features: Audio Commentary by William Wellman, Jr. | Trailer Gallery

Lloyd Bridges stars as Colton, a former Union cavalry captain who rides the American West in search of himself. His journey finds him crossing paths with a range of men and women emblematic of the best and worst in humanity. Introspective and emotionally complex, The Loner stood apart from the typical "white hat/black hat" Western entertainment of its day, bolstered by Bridges' nuanced performance and Serling's steady hand at the reins.
This classic western directed by the great John Ford (The Hurricane) stars George O'Brien (Sunrise) and a host of other greats from the silent era and beyond. When a trio of bandits discovers a young woman (Olive Borden) whose father was murdered by a ruthless gang, the "Three Bad Men" go from being partners in crime to comrades in chivalry. Willing to put their own lives on the line to protect her from a sinister sheriff (Lou Tellegen) and his deranged posse, the men prove that character isn't always determined by which side of the law a man sits on. A grand, picturesque western, this epic stands as one of the legendary director s finest.Bonus Features: Audio Commentary by Film Historian Joseph McBride, the author of Searching For John Ford | Trailers
