Near the end of the movie, when Gary Cooper is shooting Howard Da Silva in the barn, he shoots him, then when he draws his other gun, another shot is heard. This kills Da Silva, even though Cooper is only holding the gun, not pulling the trigger. See more »
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.
