  • A major goof: the uniforms

    The uniforms worn by the Federal Cavalry were not worn until the late 1870's--Civil war cavalrymen at the beginning of the Civil War wore Mexican war style dragoon jackets, which were gradually replaced by theplain sack coat, commonly referred to as a "blouse". The civil war issue had 4 buttons; a later issue (1874)had five. Shirtsleeve campaigning did not come until 1876. Officers wore frock coats for full dress occasions;in the field they often wore jackets which were actually cut down frock coats.

    Don't get me wrong, I think the films that Ford and Wayne made early on were some of the finest films ever, (Stagecoach, They Were Expendable, The Long Voyage Home, She Wore a Yellow Ribbon, et.al) But following "The Searchers" it was all downhill. John Wayne decided that he didn't want to be an actor, but would rather be John Wayne, and thus made few good films from then on (The Cowboys, Chisum, The Shootist). John Ford never made another quality film. The Horse Soldiers was completely pedestrian. Constance Towers falling for grandpa Wayne was ridiculous,especially with Bill Holden around. The screenplay was insipid and the whole plot absurd. Ford had lost his powers when this one was made.

  • Great film!

    I love this film.Very well done.You can't beat the Duke and John Ford.But did you ever notice that throughout the film Duke isn't wearing any sidearms?Just a plain belt with no gun and holster and no saber.I thought that curious.But it doesn't take away from the whole production and is very well done!

  • North Meets South

    My husband and I first saw this movie in 1959 (the year we met). We both were John Wayne fans, so it was a given that we would watch this movie. Besides my husband was an avid civil war historian. John Wayne is his usual great self; but Constance Tower is his equal in the acting between them. Willliam Holden is as strong a character as always (liked him in Bridge on the River Kwai). The story progresses along going through many different parts of the South. Young boys from a military school get involved; and it's just wonderful to see how passionate they are about their South as are Northerners. Both hard headed John & Constance don't understand that they hate/love each other right away, as soon as they meet. It's quite a delightful movie experience. One that I still experience every time I watch this great movie. I gave it 5 stars many years ago.
