Movie Info

To avoid execution on a trumped-up charge, Abby (Paulette Goddard) agrees to be enslaved in the British colonies of North America. The captain of the transport ship, Martin Garth (Howard da Silva), has his eye on her, but he is outbid by Capt. Chris Holden (Gary Cooper), a Virginian. After setting Abby free on shore, Holden learns that Native Americans are plotting to attack the settlers. Holden, suspecting that Garth is in on the scheme, aims to stop them before all the colonists are killed.

Critic Reviews for Unconquered

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (1) | Fresh (4) | Rotten (1)

  • Cecil Blount DeMille's florid, $5,000,000, Technicolored celebration of Gary Cooper's virility, Paulette Goddard's femininity and the American Frontier Spirit.

  • For all its absurdity Unconquered has its Technicolorful moments... For the sake of these as well as for the pleasure of seeing Mr. [Gary] Cooper again much can be endured.

    June 13, 2018 | Full Review…
  • It's big. It's colorful. It's exciting. It's filled with movie stars who look like movie stars. It's preposterous in the way that only a Cecil B. DeMille movie can be.

    July 29, 2014 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…
  • You don't expect from DeMille logic or accuracy as the showman is notorious for preposterous spectacles such as this expensive historic epic whose appeal rests on Cooper's masculine image and Paulette Goddard's sexiness shown in a bathtub or torture stake

    June 25, 2007 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…
  • By 1947, Cecil B. DeMille and the movie studios should have known better that to paint a picture of Native Americans as stupid, bloodthirsty, depraved rapists and murderers.

    Typical DeMille starts out promisingly but goes on too long but still kind of fun.

    Big and loud it's Cecil B. Demille, like a drunk braggert uncle at a family holiday gathering. And this time he's on about manifest destiny and how Native Americans deserved to be divested of their home and life. Oy. Coop is solid as ever but its the supporting cast that's the show here. Look for the great Karloff as a sullen Indian chief.
