Synopsis

Collection of four classic westerns. 'Gunfight at the OK Corral' (1957) features the impeccable Marshall Earp (Burt Lancaster) and his best friend, the deadly gunfighter 'Doc' Holliday (Kirk Douglas), as they shoot it out with the notorious Clanton gang. In 'Once Upon a Time in the West' (1969), a mysterious man (Charles Bronson) arrives in Flagstone intending to kill Frank (Henry Fonda), an outlaw trying to drive a widow off some valuable property. In 'True Grit' (1969), after her father is murdered by outlaw Tom Chancey (Jeff Corey), 14-year-old Mattie Ross (Kim Darby) attempts to track down the killer. She goes to a paunchy, one-eyed marshall (John Wayne) - a man of 'true grit' - and together they pursue Chancey into Native American territory. Finally, in 'The Sons of Katie Elder' (1965), four sons are reunited when they return home to Clearwater to bury their mother, Katie Elder. John Elder (Wayne) is the oldest brother, a gunslinger. Tom (Dean Martin) is next, a card sharp who shares his sibling's ability with a gun only when his back is to the wall. Matt (Earl Holliman) is the moody one, while the youngest is Bud (Michael Anderson Jr), upon whom the family's hopes of respectability rest.
