    Sergeant Rutledge is one of those movies that teach us that what we see and assume isn't always the truth. This showed Woody Strode at his finest. As far as I'm concerned, he will always be Top Soldier for all the things that he had to endure where those athletes and thespians didn't have to endure. This movie, is also one of Jeff Chandler's finest movies. He was believable as Cantrell. He made that role his own. A good movie that should be shown to highlight that the truth isn't always what we perceive it to be.

    I am an admirer of most of John Ford's movies, espdcially since he has chosen to tell the story of those who are disenfrachised. I remember when watching the movie, Sergeant Rutledge, maybe fifteen years ago. I viewed it in a different light. I remember being angry that, again, Blacks were being shown in a negative light. What a difference some years make, the next time I viewed the movie, I saw the movie as an enlightened story, for the time, in a historical light. This movie is now, for me a very good depiction of the plight of Blacks after the Civil War, especially the Buffalo Soldiers. Kudos to John Ford! Woody Strode was magnificent, as well as Jeffrey Hunter, ( who died too soon). I also absolutely love TCM and Mr. Osborne! I don't go a day without watching this network.

    I got to see this movie twice and to me it seem sort of misleading because I thought Constance Towers was the one claiming the assault. But as I get into the movie, I notice that it went beyond her and was about the commander and his daughter, who was terribly violated. But what a ground breaking movie. Woody Strode, who went to UCLA, and had a noteworthy career more so as a character actor as opposed to starring as he did in this film, gave a great performance here as a career military man conflicted between his duty to his country and himself as a black man at that time, because he knew if the deed got discovered that they would pin the crime on him; His only crime in this was running away from the scene but then his sense of duty helped him to be at the right place when Constance Towers ended up at that train station. So it helped him a lot in the trial that ensued later. great movie.

    This movie was the first movie that I ever saw that stared a black man as a respected leader. I was 12 years old and I was in heaven. Back then we didn't see ourselves in the movies in a positive light. From that day to this I have loved Woody Strode. He had a way of doing nothing and still you would watch to see what he was gong to do next.I find it hard to believe that you don't have a picture of him. Please try to get one.

    good movie. Jeffrey Hunter and Woody Strode were magnificent. It is hard to watch movies regarding the injustices placed upon the black race, but important to watch for historical purposes. This is one of those films. Especially, because the truth wins. There is so much to this movie, and it is a good suspense film. Everyone should watch it. It was the first time I became aware of what a Buffalo Soldier was, too.
