Critic Reviews for Allegheny Uprising

All Critics (2)

Set in 1759, this well-produced film is one of the few period (pre-Revolution) pieces John Wayne made, and the second of his pictures with Claire Trevor; the others were Stagecoach and Dark Command.

Audience Reviews for Allegheny Uprising

John Wayne and Claire Trevor were reteamed the same year of their costarring triumph in 1939's Stagecoach for this potboiler set in the pre-Revolutionary American colonies, but the results were hardly as auspicious. Still, it's a decent time passer and features Brian Donlevy in one of his better villain roles.

Average actioner with the uniqueness of being set during the early American days just after the French-English conflict when settlers and the English army were in an uneasy cohabitation. Sanders is his usual exemplary snob and really makes something out of what could have been a nothing part. Wayne and Claire Trevor are okay although both seem too contemporary to really be believable as frontier types.
