http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0046865/

saw The Command on TCM

"An army doctor, with no combat experience, is forced to take command of a cavalry troop escorting a wagon train through hostile Indian country when the unit's commanding officer dies." -- from imdb

with Guy Madison, James Whitmore, and Joan Weldon

7.5/10

1) the lighting on some of the shots seems really weird; (they may have filmed some cutaways at different times)

2) Some of the smaller soldier acting jobs were done pretty poorly, of the minor players. But Guy Madison is great in the lead role.

3) It is obviously  impossible for an American to make a Western without having a love aspect.

Directed by David Butler. In Warnercolor

There are three types of people in the world, my friend: those who can add, and those who can't.
