"OF all the cavalry posts in the world..........."
Hugh Marlowe must have felt just like Richard Blaine in Casablanca when Sergeant Ray Milland was assigned to the same post. Back in the Civil War they fought it out over a woman with Marlowe getting slashed with a saber and Milland getting busted out of the army.

Good Saturday afternoon western for those like me who like them.
