Good early western movie.

CAVALRY CHARGE is actually a film from Paramount,called THE LAST OUTPOST.

It was an A feature and did good solid box office.

The original film had beautiful colors by Technicolor.

This film deserves a much better release than this one from Ivy Video. The original title "Last Outpost" has been removed and replaced with "Cavalry Charge" for this re-release by another distributor. All references to Paramount Pictures have been removed. The quality starts out good, but then worsens with print damage and splices. This made it somewhat annoying to watch. Hard to recommend this edition.

This film was well-made! The storyline is as follows: Vance Britton is an officer in the Confederate army. He is sent out West to stir things up for the Union. While he's there he meets his brother Jeb, who is the commander of a Union fort. Vance ends up pretending to be a Union officer so he can free some Indian prisoners to keep the Apaches from attacking. Jeb catches him but lets him go. Also in the same town is Vance's old flame, Julie. She is angry because he left her at the beginning of the war. He just thought he was doing what was best, but she has a hard time believing him about anything after that. Eventually the Apaches attack because the prisoners were not freed. They are about to win the battle when Vance and his cavalry come to the rescue (hence the title). Of course everything ends happily. I thought the battle scene was well done. In short, this is a great film.

Yep, this is my favorite Ronald Reagan movie.

Cavalry? Yes. Military? Yes. Fun? Yes.

I've watched it a couple of times since purchasing it here on Amazon, and I thought it was worth both my hard-earned sheckles and popcorn time.

Older westerns seem to be a turn-off with the psuedo-elite/liberal, extremism in America today. Oh, we were terrible to the Indians, we tricked the poor French, we stole the whole country and we should be ashamed of ourselves? Who's we, sucker? My grandparents were all immigrants that left crappy European countries around the 1900's because of extremism. And since when do you watch movies for political activism? You're supposed to watch them for escapism! Being a moderate, I detest extremist, especially when they attack something as simple and trival as a freaking movie or entire decades of freaking movies.

Chill, it's not real.

It's just a movie, fiction; entertainment.

And entertainment it was. Reagan is so larger than life and The War Between the States as we call it in Kentucky is shown about as fair as you're gonna get. I love this one and it compliments the grim atmosphere of "Gettysburg" and the whimsical turn of "The Undefeated" nicely.

I like all kinds of flicks, good ones, bad ones, serious ones and silly ones.

In 1862 Captain Vance Britton (Ronald Reagan) leads a band of Confederate cavalry in a series of raids against the North capturing Yankee supplies sent east along the Santee Fe trail before they can reach their destination at Union outpost at Fort Point, San Gill in Arizona. Here the owner of the local trading post Sam McQuade (John Ridgely) is dealing with the Apache Indians. The Union Army of the North despatch a small detachment West under Colonel Jeb Britton (Bruce Bennett) to stop the Rebel raids. Jeb being unaware that his brother is the Confederate leader! McQuade introduces Jeb to his wife Julie (Rhonda Fleming) thinking she knows him from back East, when in fact it was his brother Vance she knew! Julie leaves her husband and McQuade tries to negotiate with the Indians to attack the Rebels. Out on a raid Vance and his patrol come across a couple of McQuade's wagons still burning as a result of an Apache raid, nearby the body of Sam McQuade was found on him was a letter from Washington DC saying that a Union officer was on his way to talk to Chief Grey Cloud the Apache leader. Vance ambushes the Union major and two sergeants and exchange identities with them and the trio set off to meet Grey Cloud disguised as Union soldiers. Unfortunately Grey Cloud sees through their masquerade and they are given 24 hours to go to the jail in San Gill where a group of Apaches are being held accused of the murder of Sam McQuade. Following a series of misadventures Vance fails to release the Apache prisoners but does manage to escape with his two sergeants having crossed paths with Julie and his brother Jeb. With the Apaches still in jail Grey Cloud attacks in force. Vance and his Confederate Cavalry hearing of the attack ride to the rescue in an heroic cavalry charge!Read more ›
