Mission from Jefferson
23 April 2016 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

B movie western actor Tom Keene stars in this poverty row costume drama of the American frontier as it was during the Thomas Jefferson administration. He's on a mission first to and then from our third president who has one big real estate deal cooking with Napoleon Bonaparte. Basically Allan Cavan as Jefferson doesn't want any boats rocked while he's negotiating.

But some frontier elements are doing just that and some rather ambitious fur trappers are looking to maybe displace the current Spanish administration and maybe set their own country up. That won't sit well with either Washington, DC or the Spaniards that Napoleon left in charge. Getting kind of lost in the intrigue is the budding romance between Keene and the Spanish governor's daughter played by future movie queen legend Rita Hayworth.

It's a poverty row product with inferior values and even worse acting. If it weren't for Rita Hayworth no one would remember this item.
