Like Ford At Fox quite a bit. As well as classics like The Grapes of Wrath, How Green Was My Valley and My Darling Clementine there are lesser known gems like Drums Along the Mohawk (1939) a tale of colonists duking it out with the British and upper New York State Indians during the American War of Independence. Very nice restored Technicolor picture and a great cast that includes Henry Fonda, Claudette Colbert and frequent John Wayne co-star Ward Bond. Only drawback of this set is that there are no Ford/Wayne flicks - they teamed later at Republic and Warner for classics like The Searchers (1956). Nice to have this set of early Ford, though.
