Storyline

After the Civil War, ex-Union Colonel John Henry Thomas and ex-Confederate Colonel James Langdon are leading two disparate groups of people through strife-torn Mexico. John Henry and company are bringing horses to the unpopular Mexican government for $35 a head while Langdon is leading a contingent of displaced southerners, who are looking for a new life in Mexico after losing their property to carpetbaggers. The two men are eventually forced to mend their differences in order to fight off both bandits and revolutionaries, as they try to lead their friends and kin to safety. Written by Alfred Jingle

Saturday Matinée Classic
10 July 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I first saw this movie when I was 11 or 12 with the neighborhood kids and we all loved it!! I remember the whole crowd of us cheering John Wayne on.

And as young girls we also thought Roman Gabriel was to die for!! LOL It taught us the evils of prejudice, the sadness and happiness of unrequited love similar to Romeo and Julliette (Blue Boy and the Col.s daughter). It even taught us the futility of war. Maybe not all those things in the obvious sense but as kids it made us feel sad about war, disgusted at the prejudice and fall in love with the handsome native American, Blue Boy.

Great Movie, great actions, lots of good things to enjoy just for pure entertainment value!!!
