Storyline

A Confederate troop, led by Captain Lafe Barstow, is prowling the far ranges of California and Nevada in a last desperate attempt to build up an army in the West for the faltering Confederacy. Because the patrol saves a stagecoach, with Johanna Carter as one of the passengers, from an Indian attack, and is marooned on a rocky mountain, it fails in its mission but the honor of the Old South is upheld.

Goofs

The old lobby card summary is incorrect. The Sioux Nation was restricted to the Dakotas during the 19th century. What Capt. Barstow and his seven Confederates faced was the Great Basin branch of the Shoshone tribe. See more »

The photography method translates very well to the TV screen. The movie is at the top of the genre. Though it gets strange dark in the night scenes and lags in places, the WASP honor that pervades it seems authentic. What's with Flynn's locket and that suggestive rock monument they keep riding around? Gets to be kinda subliminal and mythic.....which is good.
