Collection of three John Wayne films. In 'Donovan's Reef' (1963) three naval veterans, Donovan (Wayne), Gilhooley (Lee Marvin) and Dr William Dedham (Jack Warden), are still living on the Pacific Island they were sent to liberate 20 years previously.
Their lives are about to be turned upside-down, however, when Dr Dedham's daughter, Amelia (Elizabeth Allen), whom he has never met, decides to visit to check out whether her father is fit to inherit majority shares in the family shipping business.
In 'Hatari' (1962) Wayne stars as Sean Mercer, head of a group of highly skilled professional game hunters.
However, these hunters don't use bullets: they capture the ferocious big game with strong rope and cameras for zoos and circus attractions - an exciting business that pits man against beast.
In 'In Harm's Way' (1965), out-of-favour Captain Rockwell Torrey (Wayne) is instrumental in planning the US navy's retaliation after the Japanese launch their surprise attack on Pearl Harbor during WWII.
The top brass slowly warm to him as his strategy begins to pay dividends, whilst a thawing of relations also becomes apparent between him and his estranged son.
