I like all these movies. Been waiting for McQ to come out on dvd for years. People seem to dis it a lot, but I dig seeing John Wayne crusing around in that Firebird and kicking ass 70's style. The Train Robbers has Ann Margret, Ricardo Montalban, Bobby Vinton, and a tricky ending going for it.

Count me as another fan of MCQ. The sight of a 67 year-old Duke, with one lung and a bad toupee, tooling around in a Firebird and toting a sub-machine gun, is a kick for me. Clu Gulager and Al Lettieri in the supporting cast help also.
THE TRAIN ROBBERS is great. A Burt Kennedy script not too far from the kind he used to write for Budd Boetticher.
I haven't seen TALL IN THE SADDLE in years, and the others I'm not sure I've seen at all.

And I am yet another one excited about MCQ. The Duke's answer to DIRTY HARRY kicks butt and has a great jazzy/funky score from Elmer Bernstein (matching Lalo Schifrin at his own game). I'd recommend it to anyone who enjoyed Bronson's 70's era PG-rated flicks like THE MECHANIC and MR. MAJESTYK - it's a similar kind of old-school action fun.
