Good movie fun. Best wagon charge ever. Unfortunately I wish the main French woman character was an actual French actress instead of a Czech actress.
This was actually a lot of fun to watch but rather odd as the heroes are the refugees from Napoleon's French Imperial court and the villains are a bunch of Alabaman river men trying to cheat the French out of thier land grants. PS the French win the land/range war with some help from John Wayne and Stan Laurel who is really good as Wayne's fighting sidekick. It's funny as the the way the actors say John Wayne's character's name with thier accents makes it sound like they are saying John Wayne instead of John Breen.
It has a little light humor, it has action, it has drama and it has romance. Not a bad early movie of "the Duke". Oliver Hardy adds a nice comic relieve to the movie.
