The last charge of the doomed Southerners as they yelled the "rebel yell' brought tears to my eyes. So bittersweet.
- Jim Smith
Very watchable western with Flynn in A-1 form. Strong cast, great pace and magnificent scenery beautifully filmed. Also with a very lovely woman - Patrice Wymore.
over rated and treasonous.
- mark Hasslinger
this movie glorifies the confederacy and is counter productive to a civil country. two and a half stars is two and half stars to many.
GREAT CIVIL WAR WESTERN
- OLD TIMER
Flynn's last western,before his lifestyle caught up with him,was a humdinger.Flynn's character,a war weary Captain of cavalry,along with a handful of troopers who have the impossible mission of taking the war to California with the aid of local outlaws,a desperate last throw of the dice as this is set in March 1865.Things go wrong immediately when they rescue a stagecoach driver and his female passenger from marauding indians.Her fiance just happens to be the commanding officer of the local Union garrison who is captured by Flynn and his Confederates when he tries to rescue her.He manages to escape but is presumed dead.After a few more twists to the plot the film takes a tragic turn when in an act of Southern gallantry Flynn and his men act as decoys while the stagecoach driver and his passenger make their escape.The ruse works but Flynn and his men are trapped in a box canyon.Facing the enemy they unfurl the Confederate flag and with the sound track playing Dixie they charge and are gallantry killed.It is one of the most moving action sequences I have ever seen,when I saw this film as a lad we all stood up and cheered (and we were all English for goodness sake)The girls fiance has survived,meets up with her and with his troop they ride to the rescue but are too late.Flynn and his men are buried with full military honours and with the Warner Bros choir singing Dixie the Confederate flag is flown from the highest butte.This film is almost a Confederate propoganda exercise,the issues behind the Civil War are studiously avoided.

My favorite movie with my all-time favorite actor...Errol Flynn. For me , this movie exemplifies what can be within us all... honor and courage, and that people are generaly at their best when thing are worse.
Underrated Western classic-
- Steve S.
Flynn's last western is an emotional and stirring Civil War western. Flynn's a Confederate Captain who leads a small force into Indian country. Of significance is the fact that Ronald Reagan wanted very much to play Flynn's role and was bitter over the loss.This is the first appearance of Flynn and Patrice Wymore (soon to be his wife) and the last one of Guinn Williams with Flynn.An outstanding musical score by Max Steiner which underlies the action in bombastic fashion. The film is about heroism and self-sacrifice and the last ten minutes are unforgettable. For Flynn fans this is a must see.
Gets your heart pumping
The scene where Errol Flynn turns his troops around and they charge the Indians is worth sitting through the whole movie...a true classic scene.
a lost gem
- dennis v roehr
Here is a movie lost to generations great locations ,action,classic characters, just a rousing adventure not to mention the cast!
This is a movie with great location shots and action sequences. The genre is moody, a sort of noir western. I would definitely like to see it again.
