The Horse Soldiers (1959)

Rated NR

John Wayne stars as a Union cavalry colonel during the Civil War, who was ordered behind Confederate lines to sabotage the enemy. Starring John Wayne, William Holden, Constance Towers

Based on the real raid of Col. Benjamin Grierson (Grierson’s Raid) this movie was entertaining, to say the least. John Ford shoots his usual perfect visual style in this film even if it wasn’t his usual film making perfection. This film is worth a watch.
