Movie Info

Filmed in both the US and Mexico, The Wonderful Country stars Robert Mitchum as a soldier-of-fortune willing to play along with the side that pays him most. First he runs guns for dictator Pedro Armendariz. Later on, he dons the uniform of a Texas Ranger under the leadership of Gary Merrill. Mitchum is motivated not so much by patriotism as by his desire for Julie London, Merrill's pneumatic wife. Appearing in The Wonderful Country in the small role of a cavalry sergeant is baseball legend Satchel Paige.more
