The Horse Soldiers

Beverly Hills, CA: United Artists, 1959. Vintage photograph from the 1959 film, showing director John Ford sharing a cigar with in-costume actor Hoot Gibson during a break in shooting an outdoor scene. With the stamp of a private collector on the verso.

A Union cavalry brigade's mission behind Confederate lines is complicated when they are forced to take a woman prisoner after she overhears their plans. Loosely based on the 1956 novel by Harold Sinclair, which in turn was based on the historic Civl War Battle of Newton's Station and Grierson's Raid.

Set in the American South, shot on location in Louisiana and Mississippi.

8 x 10 inches (20 x 25 cm). Very Good plus, with light toning and a splash stain to the margins.
