High Plains Drifter
CLINT EASTWOOD takes the directorial reins of his first western (his second film as director following the highly successful PLAY MISTY FOR ME) with HIGH PLAINS DRIFTER, returning to the wild old west and to the familiar role of the iconic 'Man With No Name' established in his acclaimed collaborations with Sergio Leone.

Eastwood portrays a mysterious stranger who emerges out of the desert and rides into the guilt-ridden town of Lago. Terrified by a group of outlaws with a score to settle, the residents of Lago hire the Stranger to protect them...but by the time he makes them paint their town red and rename it "Hell", it becomes clear that he is no ordinary gunslinger.

Winchester 73
It's the legendary James Stewart at his leading-man finest in this timeless western that set the standard for all that followed.
Frontiersman Lin McAdam (Stewart) is attempting to track down both his father's murderer and his one-of-a-kind rifle, the Winchester '73, as it passes among a diverse group of desperate characters, including a crazed highwayman (Dan Duryea), an immoral gunrunner (John McIntire), a savage young Indian chief (Rock Hudson) and McAdam's own murderous brother (Stephen McNally). Featuring Shelley Winters as the rifle's only rival for McAdam's interest and Tony Curtis in one of his first screen performances, the gripping tale of the men (and gun) who won the West is one of Stewart's most memorable films and one of the genre's most enduring classics.

Rooster Cogburn
Two of the most popular stars in screen history are brought together for the first time in the follow-up to 'True Grit'. The film returns John Wayne to the role of the rapscallion, eye-patched, whisky-guzzling Deputy Marshall that won him an Academy Award. Katharine Hepburn is prim Eula Goodnight, a Bible-thumping missionary who teams up with the gun-fighter to avenge the death of her father. While in pursuit of the outlaws, a warm rapport develops between the rough-and-tumble lawman and the flinty Reverend's daughter.

Night Passage
When the local railroad becomes the constant target of a band of desperadoes led by the notorious Whitey Harbin (Dan Duryea), train officials recruit soft-spoken but life-hardened employee Grant McLaine (Stewart) to guard the payroll from any more robberies. Trouble is, the gang's most skilled and lethal gunslinger, the Utica Kid (Audie Murphy), is Grant's kid brother. Torn between the bonds of blood and his allegiance to the railroad, Grant finds himself hoping for the best but preparing for the worst as the train comes under attack from Harbin's bandits, climaxing in an unforgettable gun battle as the brothers from opposite sides of the law meet again to settle an old score.
