"[CANYON PASSAGE is] a western that resembles no other and remains one of the great unsung achievements of American filmmaking."
This collection presents four classic Westerns. In THE TEXAS RANGERS (1936), two outlaws join the Texas Rangers and find their new heroics placing them at odds with their old lifestyle and friends. In CANYON PASSAGE (1946), a lawman retires to the Oregon Territory in hopes of a more peaceful life as a shopkeeper, but trouble follows right behind him. KANSAS RAIDERS (1950) chronicles Jesse James's early life as a Confederate rebel, while THE LAWLESS BREED (1953) dramatizes the memoirs of legendary Wild West gunslinger John Wesley Hardin, whose life outside the law comes to bear tragically on the son he barely knew.
