Sam Elliott has one of the most beloved catalogs of movies behind him of any actor working, and there's never a bad time to add one to your shelf. Whether you're a fan of Elliott's old Western work, his stoic action roles or even his parts in children's movies, there are plenty of great deals on Blu-ray copies of Elliott's work right now.
Elliott made headlines this week for lending his unmistakable voice to a political ad for former Vice President Joe Biden in the 2020 presidential election. The actor tends to keep his politics to himself, though some fans had presumptions about his positions based on his work.

Whichever side of the aisle they were coming from, fans could never miss Elliott's distinctive baritone voice, no matter the setting. The actor has been Hollywood's favorite self-aware cowboy for decades now, and die-hard movie fans know him well.
