Some interesting titles are now available as part of the MGM Limited Edition Collection.
Fort Defiance (1951) stars Dane Clark, Peter Graves and Ben Johnson. Directed by John Rawlins, it‘s in Cinecolor.
Johnson’s got the lead in Fort Bowie (1958), directed by Howard W. Koch. Koch is primarily known as a producer β everything from Pharaoh’s Curse (1957) to Airplane! (1980). But he directed the terrific crime/prison picture Big House U.S.A. (1955) and some episodes of The Untouchables, among other things.
Davey Crockett, Indian Scout (1950) stars George Montgomery, Ellen Drew and Noah Beery Jr. It was directed by Lew Landers (real name: Louis Friedlander), a prolific and often quite good director whose credits include everything from The Raven (1935) to Hot Rod Gang (1958).
What’s more, there’s The Gun Runners (1958), a non-Western picture that reunites Audie Murphy and Don Siegel.
