Product Description

Product Description

With America slipping inexorably towards civil war, Captain Whitlock (Robert Sterling) has assumed command of a New Mexico army post, situated near to a tribe on Navajo Indians. His second in charge, Lieut. Sayre (Audie Murphy) is a childhood friend of Navajo Chief Menguito and has maintained peaceful relations in the area...until now. Duped by warmongering Confederate sympathisers intent on provoking the Navajos, Lieut. Sayre now finds himself fighting his once close friend. He must uncover the truth and expose those responsible for the charade before Meguito's braves collide with the U.S. Cavalry in all-out war.

Just to add to the comments of two previous reviewers, I've just had my copy of this DVD and picture and sound quality seem ok, no nasty digital "enhancements"(!) just a good OK print, of the standard Channel 5 regularly broadcast!! For a sixty year old movie it looks pretty good still.

As for the movie, if you enjoy Audie's westerns, (and if you're reading this I'm sure you do!) - there's no reason not to add this one to your collection - get it whilst it's available.

Hope that re-assures everyone!

Watched this today, and as others have said - Is this a new Dawn of Enlightement for Pegasus? (Well actually no one said that, but you know what I mean.) This print is perfectly acceptable, much the best colour film I've seen from them. So, picture and sound very good, shame the film is not one of Audie's best, but it's good in a very typical "Indian vs Cavalry" way. I like it, and it has a good western cast. I have also seen "Away All Boats" and that's good quality too. I am now just waiting fo "Pillars of the sky" - Will it be Scope?? I'll let you know, as indeed, so will (many) others, I'm sure.

Column South is directed by Frederick de Cordova and written by William Sackheim. It stars Audie Murphy, Joan Evans, Robert Sterling, Dennis Weaver and Ray Collins. Music is scored by Joseph Gershenson and photography by Charles P. Boyle

The Breach Between The North And South Was Rapidly Widening. A Grim Spectre Of Civil War Hovered Over The Land. It Was A Time of Crisis. . .A Time For Choosing Sides.

Story essentially involves Jed Sayre (Murphy), a friend to the local Navajo Indians, relinquishing his command of Fort Union to Captain Lee Whitlock (Sterling), who after arriving with his sister Marcy (Evans), demands changes to how the Fort is run and expects Jed to end his friendship with the Navajo. When a prospector is discovered murdered it is presumed the Navajo are the guilty party, so setting the wheels in motion for Jed to try and quell the impending war with the Indians and thus having to fight his friend Menguito (Weaver) In the mixer is the impending Civil War, with deserters, traitors and political shenanigans at HQ also taking a hand in proceedings. While Jed and Marcy dance around the inevitable with their love/hate relationship.

In spite of dangling some interesting narrative threads, Column South sadly doesn't rise above being a routine Cavalry Vs Indians Western. But it's never dull and Murphy fans get the usual committed performance. What is of most interest here is the location for the shoot, shot in Apple Valley, California, it's an appealing Oater location with its surrounding hills and craggy rocks that are formed down in the valley.

no problem with the picture quality that has plagued a number of Pegasus western releases in the past .but this isn't one of Audies best offerings it gets a little bit slowed down in politics for me ,however there are some action packed scenes involving the Indians and Fort ,that just about get this film 3 stars .

'Column South' follows Lt. Jed Sayre (Audie Murphy) in the buildup to the Civil War as he tries to keep the peace between the Navajo and the US Army. Along the way he is hindered by crooked prospectors, a racist commanding officer, and a traitorious general...
I thought this movie was very well done. There is plenty of plot and action, good character development, a realistically intelligent lead character, and a fascinating period of history as a setting. Although it was made early in Audie Murphy's career he acts with an ease that I have no doubt was the envy of his contemporaries, supported by a good crew (he apparently went on to work with many of them in other movies, which I look forward to seeing). A little general knowledge of Civil War history makes Column South mean so much more, but it isn't essential as I watched it with some friends who know almost nothing about history and they still enjoyed it. One final thing that grabbed me-the costumes are brilliant. The uniforms are good and the leading lady's dresses and hairdos are beautifully time-period.
Bottom line-I recommend this movie to anyone who enjoys a good Western, movies based on historical events, Audie Murphy, or all of the above.

Not a bad film. A bit run of the mill. I don't suppose it would appeal to a great number of people unless, like me, they are very fond of westerns. As usual Audie Murphy plays the part of...Audie Murphy as he did in all his films....Same person with just a different set of clothes....Still one of the old films with no sex, no bad language and no extreme violence....If you like westerns you may like this one. Reasonably priced also.
