Tom Tryon portrays a concerned cavalry officer attempting to whip his company of raw immigrant recruits into fighting shape on the western frontier. Simultaneously carrying on a love triangle with Senta Berger and her new flame, his scout. His commanding officer carries a grudge held over since the Civil War which clouds his judgement. In Reno/Custer like fashion, Tom Tryon and his company are sent to reconoiter while the General leads the remainder of the command to their deaths. Great battle scenes and rousing moments of espirit d'accord(sp). For those who like westerns, cavalry, and Custer.

The only bad thing about this video is that it is not a director's cut! I remember a little more detail from the original release in theaters. An outstanding western and cavalry movie. It makes subtile use of real history. The relationship between Tom Tryon's character and Andrew Duggan's character mirrors the real life Custer versus Reno/Benteen friction. The battle scene fairly closely follows Reno's portion of Custer's disasterous engagement in 1876. Also note James Caan as the Irish recruit. Lots of low key humor is included, especially Tom Tryon's and Harve Presnell's fight scene. Maybe someday a DVD Director's Cut? I can only hope.

Just a great cavalry/Indian film.A cast of thousands make this a movie one they just can't afford to make in todays market.Very good cavalry evolutions,and equipment.Based very losely on the 1876 Custer battle,and the Reno part of the engagement.Good character build up with some great lines from the chief scout,Harvey Presnell."Drink deep,ride hard.Don't look over the horizon,thats the Lord,s business." "Son of the morning Star",has more acurate uniforms and equipment,and ranks also as the best Custer movie.I would reccommend both films.

...I was thrilled to see that this film was available on DVD... but nervous at seeing "Morgan J. Freeman" listed as the director...(instead of Arnold Laven) Made me wonder... Only the fact that I was buying through Amazon made me go ahead and order.

...Advertised as "letterbox..." I got DVD and the "jacket" said "FULL SCREEN"... Well, don't worry... it IS in "LETTERBOX..." Disc is "bare bones..." Absolutely no special features... not even scene selection. You put in disc and movie runs... when done... runs again.

...Copy seems decent enough... especially the color... which has faded badly on the copies shown on TV... I last saw this film in widescreen at a theater in 1965 on a date... It has been shown on TV only rarely... I have had the opportunity three times in all these years (oddly, most recently the day before the DVD arrived) So a joy to see again in letterbox... with very good color... Scenes often missing in TV showings (training ride, soldier missing saloon fight) have been restored... and the sound quality is very good.

...As to the film itself... Would have been better if Sam Peckinpaw had directed rather than just written the screenplay (from Hoffman Birney's DICE OF GOD...) TWO romances to bog down the plot rather than just one... Seemingly unavoidable "bust up the saloon scene..."

...Having said that... a large part of the film is definitely amazing. The all time best wide screen cavalry vs Indians battle (and deployment to battle) to ever grace the screen. It has been many years since studios could afford this scale (until computer augmentation arrived...)

...The Glory Guys (unfortunate title) is a thinly veiled retelling of the Custer at the Little Bighorn story.

Format: DVD
I remember seeing "The Glory Guys" on TV on a Saturday afternoon or two as a child; as something of a student of the era -- I was the kid who read the Time-Life books on the Old West and made a diorama of Custer's Last Stand for a school project -- I thought the film better than some, presenting images that rather faithfully reproduced what I'd seen in those pages, mostly the incredible paintings of Remington and Shreyvogel. But I also remember being somewhat bored by it, turned off by Tom Tryon's and Harve Presnell's wooden acting and a story that seemed to be taking quite a while to get to the inevitable battle. Watching it again 20 years later, and seeing it in widescreen, makes me appreciate the film more, though it isn't a perfect movie by any stretch. A fictionalized but thinly veiled accounting of the events leading up to the Battle of the Little Bighorn, the Sam Peckinpah-penned horse opera works best when it focuses on the mundaneities of a soldier's life in the era, as well as the desire to stay alive more than to ride into glory through a desperate, romanticized charge. These moments -- including the fresh recruits being turned into soldiers under the fatherly tutelege of a sargeant (Slim Pickens -- how can you go wrong with him in this role?), a boisterous night on the town, and a young private's sneaking off base to meet with a girl he loves -- position "The Glory Guys" as a better film about the military than most. But the so-so romantic triangle between Tryon, Presnell, and the lovely Senta Berger vacillates between being charming in a funny way (a fight scene with some good visual gags) and just plain tedious, as no one seems to have any sparks or interest in the other.Read more ›

The director is Morgan Freeman???
You are absolutely correct. This is in fact the widescreen (in spite of what it says on jacket) DVD of The Glory Guys directed by Arnold Laven... No idea where Morgan Freeman name came from...
