Courage and man's other imperfections
on March 13, 2015
Gary Cooper, Rita Hayworth, Van Heflin, Tab Hunter, Richard Conte and Michael Callan. Need I say more? A former coward is assigned the
duty of escorting war heroes to a destination where they will be cited for their valor. For various reasons many do not wish to receive the highly publicized medals and recognition afforded. The long, arduous journey becomes one of trial and tribulation as the "merry" band journeys toCordura. Accompanying them is a women of "reputation," who is being transported to prision for aiding the enemy. The coward does regain
his courage and sense of pride and duty. However, he may not live to complete his present assignment. Impressive battle sequence at the
beginning of the film. Rousing musical score and great photography. All performances are very well done. Notable performance by character
actor Robert Keith (Brian Keith's father) in the opening scenes, as the battlefield military commander who leads his troops to glory! A must-see film!
