I just heard of this and what a massive set it is. Amazing how many MORE of his films are still unavailable. However The Iron Horse, Tobacco Road, and The Prisoner of Shark Island have been on my list for awhile.

Great news! I hope they will keep releasing even more of his work. It's amazing how many films he made!

I purchased the rather well-endowed U.K. release of Prisoner last year. It was well worth it! Btw, it's one of the many films being released individually on the same day.

Also, there are three mini-collections:

The Essential John Ford

Grapes of Wrath
How Green Was my Valley?
My Darling Clementine
Drums Along the Mohawk
Becoming John Ford
Frontier Marshal

The Silent Epics

The Iron Horse (two versions)
Four Sons
Hangman's House
Just Pals
3 Bad Men

The American Comedies

Steamboat Round the Bend
Doctor Bull
Judge Priest
Up the River
What Price Glory
When Willie Comes Marching Home

Well since How Green Was My Valley is the only film in this collection I currently own on DVD, then picking up the whole bunch wouldn't be too troublesome.

Description courtesy of Facets

"Two rare classics from the master of all things subversive and surreal in the cinema. The set includes Gran Casino (Mexico, 1947, 92 mins., Spanish with English subtitles), the first feature film by Buuel to be made during his stint in Mexico. This musical western is standard genre fare, but Jorge Negrete and Libertad Lamarque give spirited performances, and the zany plot--part gangster film, part adventure musical--is undeniably lively. The Young One (Mexico/USA, 1960, 95 mins., in English) is a powerful work about racism and sexual exploitation. A northern black jazz clarinetist (Bernie Hamilton) fleeing from false rape charges turns up on a small island off the Carolina coast and finds himself being hunted by a game warden (Zachary Scott). The sheriff's racial bigotry flares openly, though he is concealing his own perverse sexual fixation on a beautiful young nymphet (Kay Meersman). 'A film that is realistically simple in all its parts, and realistically complex in its total picture of life and people' (Newsweek)."

This 2-disc set, which I believe I once referenced earlier, is now available. The highly informative audio commentaries -- Casino (Phillip Kemp), Young (Peter Evans/Isabel Santaolalla) -- are provided as extra features.

*Note: the discs are (officially) mislabeled.

I see that appearing in big bold letters on my Christmas list. I REALLY do need a new job. I @#%$ in someone's Wheaties last night and everyone now hates me, or at least enough people hate me to make working there a living hell.
