This collection featuring the actor James Stewart showcases all that
is sincere in his body of work. Vertigo ( an alfred hitchcock vehicle)
is a money that signposts the maincharacters inadequecies but
it gets turned around to his advantage.
James Stewart played great men such as Glen Miller in the Glen
Miller Story or as flyer in the Spirit in St. Louis. He was an accredited
pilot who signed up for world war 2.
His forays into the classic western still stand as in Shenendoah
where he tries to hold a family together while being pursued by both
sides during the American civil war.
He can do light and sweet as in - Harvey, the classic well-known-
It's a wonderful life. His style is one quiet sincerity.

I see you've posted this as a DVD review, but you've not mentioned the DVD. Are there any extras? If so, what are they and are they any good? If you add to this, or if you change it to be posted as a "Film Only" review, which can be done by accessing "edit review" above the review and changing the drop down menu under the "Which format are you reviewing?" question at the bottom, please let me know and I'll re-rate.

Django Unchained (DVD)

(+) Great characters and set pieces, quotable dialogue
(-) Tarantino's trademark Graphic violence and colourful language are not for everyone

For A Few Dollars More (DVD)

(+) Leone's intense direction and Morricone's evocative score. Unusually moving for a western.
(-) Some of the dubbing is a little distracting.
