Allegheny Uprising (RKO 1939, John Wayne, George Sanders)



In Allegheny Uprising John Wayne clashes with a British military commander in order to stop the sale of guns to the Indians. Straightforward military tale with less-familiar setting of mid- 1700s colonial America.

The stars of this film and Stagecoach (both made in 1939), John Wayne and Claire Trevor, also appeared together in Dark Command (1940) and The High and the Mighty (1954).
