Product Details

In this psychologically rugged western set in 1916, Gary Cooper stars as the idealistic Major Thomas Thorn, someone who is ashamed of his own "cowardice." He has been relieved of his command and charged with finding and bringing five war heroes (fighting the Mexicans led by Pancho Villa) to receive special honors in the Texas town of Cordura. The men are brought together, and Adelaide Geary (Rita Hayworth) joins them. She is the renegade daughter of a politician fallen into disgrace. Along the trek to Cordura, the Major's initial admiration for the five heroes disintegrates as the villainous men reveal they are sadistic and treacherous and think nothing of rape or murder. Sgt. John Chawk (Van Heflin) and Cpl. Milo Trubee (Richard Conte) are among the worst of the five.
