  • "The Horse Soldiers" was basically a good movie but could have done without the insipid love story...not realistic at all. Otherwise good performances and stuck pretty close to history in many ways even if fictionalized. It was a tragedy about Fred Kennedy's death...it was to be his last gag before retiring supposedly. John Ford pretty much lost interest in the movie after that occurred.

    There was no way the soldiers would have let the two women live.
