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 »

Good Show
28 August 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There were so many stories to tell about the civil war, the wild west and all that goes with it and this be one of them. We have it all here. Good supporting cast, excellent lead actors, dust, horses, Indians, Calvary, horses, shootings, and lots of character. The story starts out mildly and than at some point starts to gel real nice. The viewer is then captured and made one with the movie world. There is enough character development to make you care what happens to these small group of men as they all have a part to play separately and collectively. There is realism in this movie. Water is limited, hope diminishes in general, surrounded by enemies, and practically no where to go brings out of a person who they really are. It has been said that it is important how a man lives but no less important how he dies. This is demonstrated well in this movie. There is no substitute for realism, truth and reality and the western frontier took many a life who underestimated it all. Here, they bet it all and that is called living on the edge. The poets refer to this type of journey as living rather than just existing. Good snack movie and have a tall tasty cold drink standing by. Satisfying ending that if you cooperate will generate a tear and some good reflection to boot...Forward Ho ooo
