With courage, sinew and conflict: that's how the West was won.

Henry Fonda, Gregory Peck, Debbie Reynolds, James Stewart and John Wayne are among the big names in this big-event saga following a dauntless family's move West through generations - underscored by the spectacles of a heart-pounding raging river ride, a thunderous buffalo stampede and a bracing runaway train shootout. The winner of three Academy Awards®*, 'How the West was Won' was also a box-office winner. * 1963 Best Story and Screenplay Written Directly for the Screen (James R. Webb), Film Editing and Sound.
