Fugitive bank robber Joe Maybe steals the identity of a marshal and rides into a town whose judge asks Joe to act as town marshal but an old flame almost betrays his real identity forcing Joe to claim she's his wife.
True-life account of the military career of Audie Murphy, the most decorated soldier in WWII. Native of Texas, he was placed in charge of his many younger siblings on the death of his mother and decided to join the military at the age of 18 to provide for them. His many acts of bravery and heroism during the US military advance through Italy, France and into Germany earn him increasing rank and responsibility as well as the respect of his comrades in arms. Eventually he receives two dozen of the highest medals the US and France can bestow, culminating in the awarding of the Congressional Medal of Honor.Written by

Immediately prior to the theatrical release of this movie, Audie Murphy (I) appeared as the Mystery Guest on the TV show "What's My Line?" (1950). He used his natural voice, but Bennett Cerf (I) guessed his identity based on his war exploits, not voice recognition. See more »
The tanks being depicted as German tanks are actually American M41 Walker Bulldog tanks., used by the U.S. Army from 1951 to the late 1960s. See more »
For the next couple of months the 3rd division continually engaged the enemy. As usual, the foot soldier wasn't concerned with why. His greatest concerns were a vicious German defense, the fact that Italy was one mountain after another, and that weather conditions were impossible.

A good soldier's story, played by "THE REAL McCOY"
I've always Liked watching Audie Murphy's movies since I was a child. I guess it also had to do with the fact that he had that baby face. Being a combat wounded Viet Nam vet, I can relate to his ordeal during and after the war. This man was a caring man who thought of others. Like many other "Medal of Honor" winners; he like the others are not the movie RAMBO hero. They Are "THE REAL McCOYS" It's ironic, though. His last movie in 1971 was called "A time for dying"[A Jesse James movie.] In that same year he died in a small plane crash. A friend of his had once said," all those Germans could not kill him,yet a plane crash near home took his life." My last words are, "May he be with the Lord."
