Starring: Jeffrey Hunter, John Wayne, Natalie Wood, Vera Miles, Ward Bond
Three years after the Civil War, veteran Ethan Edwards (Wayne) returns to his frontier home, where he's greeted by his jubilant family, including Martin (Hunter), a part-Cherokee adoptee, now grown, who owes his life to Ethan. Tragedy strikes when a local tribe attacks the farm, brutally murders Ethan's brother and sister-in-law, and carts off their young daughter Debbie (Wood). Ethan and Martin immediately saddle up and set out to search for her, with no idea that the journey will take them as far as Canada — and last seven years.

Director: Carol Reed Run Time: 104 min.
Starring: Alida Valli, Bernard Lee, Joseph Cotten, Orson Welles, Trevor Howard
Holly Martins (Cotten) travels to the rubble of post-World War II Vienna to unravel the mysterious demise of old friend Harry Lyme (Welles). He starts with few clues, and the little information he can gather from various sources simply doesn't hang together. In this treacherous world of deception and black marketeering, Holly perseveres, aided by a police inspector (Howard) who'd also like answers. Is Harry Lyme really dead, and if not, why fake his own death?

Director: John Huston Run Time: 126 min. Format: Digital
Starring: Barton MacLane, Bruce Bennet, Humphrey Bogart, Tim Holt, Walter Huston
Fred Dobbs, Bob Curtin and Howard, three motley down-and-outers in Mexico (Bogart, Holt and Huston, respectively), pool their meager resources and set off to search for gold. Only Howard, a former prospector, really knows what he’s doing. Against all odds, the men get lucky and strike a vein. But just when things should start looking rosy, black clouds appear on the horizon. In having to protect and share their riches, the seeds of distrust are sown, particularly in an increasingly paranoid Dobbs.
