(1959) Sprawling Civil War tale of a Union colonel (John Wayne) leading an 1863 cavalry raid to cut Vicksburg’s railroad lines but runs into plenty of trouble from Southern civilians, Confederate regulars and a boy’s military academy. Director John Ford stages the action scenes with his usual gusto but places them in an unusually somber context through the comments of the troop’s surgeon (William Holden) who opposes the colonel’s scorched-earth tactics and their heavy casualties. Wartime violence. (A-I -- general patronage) TCM (cable)
