The Louis L'Amour Collection DVD Review

The Louis L'Amour Collection DVD Review 


Synopsis: Three hard-riding movie adaptations of the legendary author's novels. CATLOW: A renegade outlaw wants to pull off a gold heist but finds it hard because he's such a wanted man, by the Mexican Army, his hellcat girlfriend, an Indian war party, a vengeful killer and several hotheaded cowpokes from his former gang. Yul Brynner, Richard Crenna and Leonard Nimoy star. THE SACKETTS: Tom Selleck, Sam Elliott and Jeff Osterhage play brothers who migrate west to make their fortunes in cattle-herding and gold prospecting. Each aims to make it on his own, but each also stands up for the other when the going gets tough. And their guns blaze a name for themselves in untamed New Mexico territory. CONAGHER: He conquered the range. She conquered his heart. Sam Elliott and Katharine Ross star as a cowhand and a widowed ranch owner who are drawn to each other when ruthless rustlers threaten his livelihood and her homestead.
Review: Who is Louis L'Amour?  His western novels are famous for their grit and realism.  They're full of drama and old west adventure that are sure to capture the imagination of any fan.  These classic novels were turned into movies at one time, and now Warner Brothers is collecting some of these in the Louis L'Amour Collection.

The films in this set include such great actors as Sam Elliott, Yul Brynner and even Leondard Nimoy!  The three film set is a great homage to the writing and talent of L'Amour, which is sometimes overlooked.  The western was a great work of art back in the day and it would be great to make it see a comeback.  Until then, we can now enjoy some of the finest examples of dramatic western to ever hit the silver screen.
