Movie Info

It's the Civil War, and Union spy James J. Andrews (Fess Parker) is on a top-secret mission: to steal a Confederate train outside of Atlanta and take it back to Union territory in Tennessee, using it to sabotage and destroy Confederate supply routes along the way. But the train's conductor (Jeffrey Hunter) is on to Andrews and is determined to try his best to throw a wrench in the Union spy's plans before he delivers the train to his fellow soldiers.

    Mid Fifties Disney film has the look and feel of one of that company's 60 films. Fess Parker was a handsome man but stiff as a board as an actor. Jeffrey Hunter who was a reasonably big name in '56 oddly relegated to a supporting role here. Some nice scenery and for history buffs an decent story but nothing special.

    A good Disney sanitized Civil war movie.
