Laying on the Missouri-Arkansas border, the neutral Border City, its female mayor and city council, take no side in the ongoing Civil War and they're prepared to hang any troublemaker, Yankee or Confederate, who stirs the townsfolk up.
In October 1982, this film was chosen by the ITV network in the United Kingdom as the first film to be given a television screening in 3-D. Glasses were distributed (free) with that week's TV Times magazine and were also available in selected electrical stores (at a small charge). While the screening was reasonably successful, the experiment was not repeated. See more »

This is the only French & Indian War movie I've seen besides NORTHWEST PASSAGE, plus re-run some episodes of the TV series by the same name (on TNT a while back).
This particular movie isn't too great. No remarkable cast. No big action scenes. George Montgomery sounds to be reading any of his longer lines from cue cards. The story is boring and unoriginal.
One thing I did like -- in every battle scene characters throw knives, spears, tomahakws etc. right at the camera and the objects look to flying right at you. On the big screen or sitting next the TV this will make you jump every time.
AMC has a pretty decent quality print. But I had no 3D glasses, so the movie looked normal rather than the original 3D format.
