A strict Colonel is surrounded by undisciplined soldiers.
14 March 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Colonel Blackburn is a hard-nose military man that is in charge of a ragged renegade group of men that is out seeking money rather than fighting. As Blackburn calls his group 'Dollar Soldiers' since they are more interested in signing to the military for the bonus instead of fighting. The group of men are about tired of the rough Colonel and plan on taking him out at the earliest opportunity.

It is not long before the group gets their chance. They are on a dangerous mission through confederate lines. With the entire squad surrounded the group decides that the Colonel needs to stand trial where the death sentence will be pronounced. Before they are sent to a prison camp they want justice on the Colonel. But there is more to this story.

This was a nice story that was well performed by the entire group. Nothing really stood out as remarkable but the group did work well with each other to make for an enjoyable watch. The usual stiff Dick Powell was actually very convincing as the strict Colonel which made the entire program entertaining. Nice watch.
