... an adult and thoughtful production that explores the conflicts of men who are both enemies and allies in the waning days of the Civil War.

Audience Reviews for Two Flags West


Average picture with standard action. Linda Darnell is stuck in a part the actress stated that she didn't like, she was right it is a nothing that wastes her presence. For western fans it will do all others watch something else.
