Trivia

While Boris Karloff was filming his scenes he had his customary 4 PM tea break, which he always had written into his contract. They became so popular that even Gary Cooper and Charlie Chaplin came on set for tea, and Paulette Goddard had 4:00 tea break written into her film contracts for the rest of her film career.

The traditional view of Colonial America
8 October 1998 | by (Canyon Lake, Texas) – See all my reviews

If you hate political correctness, you may love, "Unconquered." This film, from 1947, doesn't have the contemporarily familiar themes of evil settlers, or land thieves. In fact, the Indians are the bad guys in this one. The Indians, aided by a corrupt Englishman, have decided to wipe out white settlers in a race war. Gary Cooper is quick to the rescue. All the while he attempts to regain his bond slave, escape the gallows for treason, and fight his nemesis who happens to be the Indians' best friend. This is a strong film.
