The Glory Guys Reviews
The negative aspect of the film is the love triangle which takes up a large part of the film. There is no point to this part of the story; it plays no part in the main storyline at all. The only function it has is to introduce two of the characters to each other.
As acting goes Tom Tryon is well cast as the cavalry captain he has the stature and manner about him to fill the role. Harve Presnell is average in his role as the cavalry scout, he does not really stand out. James Caan is perfectly cast as the happy-go-lucky Irish recruit who provides some comedy.
Overall a very enjoyable western which has good characters and has good action scenes. The romantic sub-plot however is pointless and unfortunately takes up a large part of the film. The film on the most part is well cast and well acted.
