About the Movie
This is the story of a renegade adventurer, Alvarez Kelly (William Holden), who gets caught in the middle of the Civil War. With no loyalties to either North or South, Kelly is hired to drive a herd of cattle from Mexico to the Union Army in Virginia. However, along the way he is captured by Confederate Colonel Tom Rossiter (Richard Widmark) who persuades him...by shooting off a finger to deliver the cattle to starving Confederates in Richmond. At a bridge leading to Richmond, the Union Army attacks and a bloody battle ensues in which Kelly risks his own life to save a Confederate officer. In the end, Kelly's fate once again lies in the hands of Colonel Rossiter.
This is NOT a WESTERN it a Civil WAR Movie
I bought this movie so I could write this review. Who ever is categorizing these movies needs to watch them before they put them up here. This movie doesn’t have ANYTHING to do with the WEST. It is ALL About the Civil WAR. It is a pretty good movie to boot. I’ve watched it quite a few times. When ever I see it on one of the Western Channels I let it play on my TV.
