Disk 1: Buffalo Girls (1995) – This film follows the bold escapades of tough-talking Calamity Jane Canary and her illustrious cohorts. It’s the waning days of the Wild West. This film stars Anjelica Huston, Melanie Griffith and Reba McEntire. ***
Disk 2: True Women (1997) – This film spans five decades from the Texas Revolution through the Civil War, Reconstruction and beyond. It is a sweeping saga of love, war and adventure. This film stars Dana Delany, Annabeth Gish and Angelina Jolie. ***
This DVD set includes 2 discs and the movies are transferred and are very good quality. The stories are filled with action and drama, but there are no bonus features. Now that was a little bit of a downer.
