Description
Big country: A retired ship captain moves west to marry and start life over as a rancher. He finds himself between two families at war over cattle watering rights, unaccepted by the local people, and in a deteriorating relationship.
The Horse soldiers: In 1863, Colonel Marlowe (Wayne), a former railroad builder, is teamed up with Union army doctor Major Henry Kendall (Holden) whom he dislikes. Marlowe is ordered to lead a Union cavalry unit behind Southern lines to attack and destroy a highly strategic Confederate railroad depot. Horse soldiers, one of director John Ford's last pictures, is based on an actual Civil War incident, Grierson's Raid, in which General Benjamin H. Grierson led a Union assault against the Vicksburg-Meridian railroad at Newton Station, Mississippi.
The Long riders: Four theatrical families of the 1980's recreate the most wanted criminal families of the 1960's. This portrayal of the Jesse James gang is a rapid fire succession of thrilling moments -- the bandits' lightning attacks on banks, trains and stagecoaches; their hairbreadth escapes from the law; Jesse's jubilant wedding celebration; and the tragic Great Northfield, Minnesota raid.
