BURBANK, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb. 23, 2005– The John Wayne Legendary Heroes Collection — featuring five classic films from the larger-than-life American hero — will debut on DVD May 3 from Warner Home Video. All five titles in the Collection, including “Blood Alley,” “McQ,” “The Sea Chase,” “Tall in the Saddle” and “The Train Robbers,” will be available on DVD for the first time. DVD special features include newsreel footage, featurettes, a John Wayne trailer gallery and more. The films will be available individually for $14.97 SRP, while the boxed set will sell for $49.92 SRP.

“Blood Alley” — Directed by Willam A. Wellman (“The Public Enemy”), this action-adventure based on A. S. Fleischman’s novel marks the first on-screen pairing of movie legends John Wayne and Lauren Bacall.

“McQ” — John Wayne forcefully enforces the law in this high-velocity thriller that’s a revenge western set in the big city. Directed by John Sturges (“Ice Station Zebra,” “The Magnificent Seven”), “McQ” also stars Eddie Albert (“Roman Holiday”) and Colleen Dewhurst (“Annie Hall,” “Dying Young”).

“The Sea Chase” — John Wayne and Lana Turner are a formidable romantic team in this harrowing action-adventure directed by Academy Award-nominee John Farrow (“Wake Island”).

“Tall in the Saddle” — In this fast-paced western, John Wayne stars as Rocklin, a cowboy who, upon arriving at a ranch to work as a cowhand, finds his employer was just murdered. Although he has no friends, and no money, Rocklin stays in town, intent on tracking the killers and uncovering a plan to inherit the dead employer’s riches.

“The Train Robbers” — The action never stops in this western starring John Wayne, Ann-Margret and Ricardo Montalban. A gunhand named Lane (Wayne) is hired by a widow, Mrs. Lowe (Ann-Margret), to find gold stolen by her husband so that she may return it and start fresh. However, once they cross the border into Mexico to recover the loot, they discover two very different pursuers: a large group of bandidos and a lone horseman (Montalban), both of whom know their every move.
