Turner Classic Movies and Universal Studios Home Entertainment present the 4-disc Joel McCrea: Westerns Collection.
Starting in the silent era, Joel McCrea rapidly became one of the most popular and versatile leading men of the early thirties. He was ideally cast in everything from Pre-Code dramas (The Common Law, 1931) to exotic adventures (Bird of Paradise, 1932) to suspense thrillers (The Most Dangerous Game, 1932) but his real forte was Westerns.
By the late forties, he began to specialize in frontier sagas due to his immense appeal to fans of the genre. In this collection, TCM showcases four highlights from this later period including The Virginian (1946), Cattle Drive (1951), Border River (1954) and Mustang Country (1976), which marks McCrea’s final screen appearance.
Presented for the first time on DVD, these four Technicolor Westerns confirm McCrea’s iconic status as an enduring Western hero and the embodiment of honor, integrity and courage on the untamed plains of America.
