Editorial Reviews

Stronghold was a compilation of Mexican and US ingenuity. Produced in Mexico using American film stars Veronica Lake and Zachary Scott, Stronghold was distributed in the US by Lippert Pictures. The Juarez revolution against Austrian emperor Maximillian set the scene for this Mexican-American production. Lake portrays a wealthy American visitor who is kidnapped by gentleman bandit Don Pedro Alvarez (Arturo de Cordova) and his gang. Alvarez plans to use the ransom money to help finance the revolution. The heroine manages to orchestrate governmental resistance against the scheme. In the process of time, the honor and patriotism of Alvarez is recognized by Lake's character. Don Miguel Navarro (Zachary Scott), the "heroic" overseer of the silver mine owned by Mary (Lake), is not what he seems to be. See what is brought to light in the film's spectacular finale. Bonus Features: Digitally Re-mastered| Scene Selection| Bios| Previews. Specs: DVD5; 72 minutes; B&W; 1.33:1 Aspect Ratio; MPAA - NR; Year - 1951/1952; SRP - $14.99.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Fairly hokey period piece doesn't deliver much in terms of thrills or history, and features some pretty bad acting exacerbated by patches of poorly looped dialogue, yet 'Stronghold' (1951) still manages to entertain in the classic matinee sense. Harmless fun produced in Mexico, directed by Hungarian Steve Sekely (1963's 'The Day of the Triffids'), and boasting an over-earnest performance by the lovely Veronica Lake. VCI's disc offers a reasonably clean print on DVD-R with a handful of trailers and cast and director bios as extras. 2 1/2 stars.

There are no references during the credits to the fact that Lippert Pictures released this. The first few seconds of the opening credits and the end title have the look of not being original. Overall the print loks quite good although there is one instance of a drop-out where there is a missing word during dialogue.
