In COMANCHEROS, John Wayne is Capt. Jake Cutter, a Texas Ranger determined to crush a powerful outlaw gang that’s selling guns to the Indians. Cutter is also trying to bring in gambler Paul Regret (Whitman), who’s wanted for murder. Both missions get entangled when Cutter crosses paths with Regret unexpectedly, and the men form an unlikely friendship while Regret decides which side of the law he’s really on.
With his boyish grin and laid-back good looks, Fast Eddie Felson has fleeced his share of pool-hall gamblers in THE HUSTLER. Now the brash pool shark is after the king of the cue stick: Minnesota Fats. But after losing to Fats in a grueling, 36-hour match, Eddie hits the skids. Only the intervention of a ruthless gambler, who stakes his claim to Eddie’s soul, can teach this hustler the cruel art of winning.
Just released from the base stockade, recruit Roland Bozz (Farrell) joins a platoon of young soldiers preparing to ship out to Vietnam in the film TIGERLAND. Bozz’s independence and outright defiance draws fire from his own men as well as commanding officers. But when the platoon is sent to Tigerland, a hellish training ground that is the last stop before Vietnam, Bozz’s leadership and loyalty bring his men together – triggering extraordinary consequences.
