Lots of tears, laughs, cowboys: John Ford DVD set.

We already own the John Wayne–John Ford Film Collection, which compiles all of Ford’s Wayne Westerns, including Stagecoach and The Searchers, but we couldn’t resist this giant grab-bag set: It includes 24 films, from Ford’s 1920 cowboy comedy Just Pals to his gruff, uneven 1952 war movie What Price Glory, starring James Cagney. We’ve got a special affection for Drums Along the Mohawk, maybe the only cowboy-and-Indians flick ever set in upstate New York.
