The Horse Soldiers [DVD] [1959]

The Horse Soldiers, one of the many pairings of star John Wayne and director John Ford, comes to DVD with a widescreen transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.66:1. English and Spanish soundtracks are rendered in Dolby Digital Mono. Spanish and French subtitles are accessible, and the English soundtrack is closed captioned. Supplemental materials include the original theatrical trailer. Fans of the Duke will certainly enjoy this disc, but there is little here to interest the average DVD consumer.

Synopsis

The Horse Soldiers
Based on an actual Civil War mission, Colonel Marlowe (John Wayne) and Major Kendall (William Holden) are ordered by General Grant to take three regiments 300 miles into enemy territory. They must destroy the railroad line between Newton Station and Vicksburg in hopes of choking off supplies to the South. Marlowe encounters a Southern belle loyal to the enemy, and keeps her in sight throughout the journey so she can't warn the Confederates. Kendall, a Northern surgeon, and the crusty Marlowe have their differences along the way. Action, romance and gory battlefield surgery accompany the army as the mission is completed. John Ford directed this film based on a novel by Harold Sinclair. ~ Dan Pavlides, Rovi
