Movie Info

In 1759, frontiersman Jim Smith (John Wayne) has little time to romance Janie (Clair Trevor), daughter of his friend MacDougall (Wilfrid Lawson), because the Indians of Pennsylvania's Allegheny Valley are on the warpath, using weapons they got from traders. Jim persuades the governor of the territory to institute a ban on trading, but scheming trader Callander (Brian Donlevy) figures a way around the ban. Captain Swanson (George Sanders), the arrogant new commander of the Allegheny region, disbelieves Jim's claims that Callander is still trading with the Indians. As they've done before, Jim and his friends disguise themselves as Indians to destroy wagons carrying Callander's illicit goods, but the trader has a few tricks of his own.

Audience Reviews for Allegheny Uprising

  • Aug 25, 2010
    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.

    John Wayne and Claire Trevor were reteamed the same year of their costarring triumph in 1939's <i>Stagecoach</i> 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.

    Another good and entertaining John Wayne classic Indian gem. 73/100
