Filmmaking's friendship with The Virginian, the laconic hero of Owen Wister's 1902 novel, is winningly renewed in this robust, observant Western that follows four previous movie versions and a TV series. Bill Pullman plays the title role and directs, steeping his film in the language and customs of the Old West, shaping it with story elements that Wister turned into staples of the Western genre and lassoing fine support from Diane Lane, John Savage, Dennis Weaver and James Drury, TV's Virginian during the series' long run. Codes of honor, murderous greed, swift retribution, a loner's impact on an untamed land: The greatest themes of Western movies ride with new vitality in this stirring and poignant saga of The Virginian.When sold by Amazon.com, this product will be manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media.

Mackenzie's Raiders: The TV Series
Manufacturer: Shout! Factory / Timeless Media
From the archives of the United States Cavalry, the true story of Colonel Ranald Mackenzie and the Cavalrymen he led, Mackenzie's Raiders. Operating on secret orders from President Ulysses S. Grant and General Phil Sheridan, Mackenzie's mission was clear-cut, clean up the Southwest...make it a fit place for Americans to live...wipe out the renegades, outlaws and murderers. If necessary, cross the Rio Grande, knowing capture means hanging by the enemy...discovery, court martial by the United States Army. For American Cavalry to make unauthorized raids into Mexico meant risking international incident, but the battle-wise Mackenzie routinely galloped across the border to inflict punishment on marauding bandidos, gun runners and renegade Apaches who raided on American soil then crossed the Rio Grande into Mexico seeking safety. But, if he or his troops were caught, our government would disown him. Mackenzie's forays into Mexico soon made the outlaws think twice about raiding in Texas.
