      Plot Summary
      In 1865 in Nevada, former Confederate Captain Ben Lassiter and his daughter Abbey travel through Modoc territory on their way to Oregon. At Fenniman's Station they stop for a meal, a bath and supplies. Inside the way-station, a group of Union soldiers,
      led by Lieutenant Weeks, are enjoying a meal. The patrol escorts an
      Army payroll and two sisters to meet another patrol, led by Captain Howard Poole.
      One of the sisters, Beth Drury, is engaged to Poole.
      The other sister, Martha Drury, is bitter at having lost her fiance during the
      American Civil War.
      When Ben Lassiter and his daughter sit for a meal inside the way-station,
      Martha Drury reacts badly toward the former Confederate officer and asks the Union patrol to arrest Lassiter.
      However, the Union patrol commander explains the civil war is over, shrugs Martha's suggestion off and orders the patrol to move on. Unknown to them, the Modocs have already set up a nearby ambush while other Modocs have surrounded Captain Poole's troop,

      Escort West is a 1958 film
      starring Victor Mature and Elaine Stewart

      Produced by Duke's brother Robert E. Morrison, for
      John Wayne's Batjac Productions.
      As could be expected 'Pals' of Duke in attendance,
      William H. Clothier on camera.also starring,
      Noah Beery Jr.,Leo Gordon , Harry Carey Jr.
      Slim Pickens, Ken Curtis ,Chuck Hayward

      This trite, low-budget Western stars Victor Mature as Ben Lassiter, a former Confederate soldier who is traveling to the Western U.S. with his daughter, Abbey (Reba Waters), just after the Civil War. Their journey is interrupted by a group of Union soldiers on patrol and the recent war casts its shadow over this encounter. Beth Drury (Elaine Stewart) is riding along with the group of Union soldiers and soon she and Lassiter become romantically entangled. Throw in her rabid anti-Confederate sister and a few hostile Native Americans, and the story is complete with the usual characters and antagonisms

      Oh, yeah, story was formula hero western and nothing special other than for the long list of western
      legends like Slim Pickens and Harry Carrey, Jr. and the drama queen antics of Ms. Dommergue.
      She was surely the film world's best pouter.

      Amazon only has one copy available at $29.99, Which, I guess would not be bad if you lived in region 2 and spoke Spanish, since it is in Spanish for region 2.
