A strange film about Confderate escapees led by George Hamilton, chased by a troop of Union mounted infantry led by Glenn Ford, with Ford's fiancé, Inger Stevens, a captive of the Confederates. Max Baer stands out as a crazed sadistic killer under Hamilton's command. Set somewhere out in southwestern Texas as the Civil War is ending, actually ends during the film, these guys carry on the fight into Mexico. There is no excuse for the idiotic editing that disjoints the whole thing, but overall it's fair to better-than-fair as a 60s violent-type western with serious sexual undertones, thanks to Inger Stevens and her part. Maybe not Phil Karlon's best film, but sets the situation of revenge over Stevens pretty well. None of the characters seem to act as if they believe in what they're saying, a definite drawback, but the cinematography is captivating and the take on the Civil War is one-of-a-kind.
