Our Score
Glenn Ford is branded a coward after surviving the massacre at the Alamo, but proves himself a hero fighting Victor Jory's band of rampaging renegades. This vigorous western has a rather perfunctory script, but director Budd Boetticher and cameraman Russell Metty stage the action scenes with some real imagination, while Julie Adams is a forceful leading lady. Both Ford and Boetticher made much better westerns later on in their careers, though this was the only one they made together.


A soldier serving at the battle of the Alamo is sent to warn his comrades' families of the impending danger, but ends up falsely branded a deserter. He tries to clear his name with acts of heroism, including tracking down the traitor who robbed the casualties after the battle was over. Western, starring Glenn Ford and Julia Adams.
