About the Movie

Based on an actual Civil War mission, Colonel Marlowe (John Wayne) and Major Kendall (William Holden) are ordered by General Grant to take three regiments 300 miles into enemy territory. They must destroy the railroad line between Newton Station and Vicksburg in hopes of choking off supplies to the South. Marlowe encounters a Southern belle loyal to the enemy, and keeps her in sight throughout the journey so she can't warn the Confederates. Kendall, a Northern surgeon, and the crusty Marlowe have their differences along the way. Action, romance and gory battlefield surgery accompany the army as the mission is completed. John Ford directed this film based on a novel by Harold Sinclair.

Another Great Film

I loved this film. Wayne is again doing what he does best being himself.

Wayne is awesome

John Wayne is the man. I even have a friggin coffee mug

Great Movies also have big errors

Love this Movie, but in the very beginning of the Trailer, there is a major error: The Confederate Cavalry singing that great song of the rights of the South, would not be carrying an American flag--particulary one which looks like it has 48 states--the contemporary one when the movie was made. Having southern cavalry in the Civil War carrying a US flag (of any age) is a major flub.
