Audience Reviews for The 7th Dawn

When it comes to war movies William Holden ranks as one of the best and well rounded actors out there, stands right up there with the Duke (John Wayne). This movie is after the war, and film in Malayisa, where the common people want independance and a democratic goverment. William Holden plays a retired Colonel who is a land owner and is very much liked by the local peoplle. The Colonel war buddy is leading a group of rebels (terriorist) to overthrow the British Goverment. I was unable to finf this fil anywhere else other then Netflix instiant viewing, My first filkm to watch online and it was excellent. Have to givre it 5 Stars.
