WOW! What a great movie! Finally saw this last night and loved it. I'd only seen William Holden in The Wild Bunch, so this made me a fan. Great story, kept you on your toes because you couldn't guess who the stoolie was! I thought it was Joey, the flute guy, the whole time. Animal and his friend make a good pair. His friend (didn't ever catch his name) kinda reminded me of Bobby Darin. Maybe it was Bobby Darin ??? Anyway, I really loved this movie.

I've never seen it the whole way through, I've only watched about half of it.  Holden was great though.

Holden is great, and of course "Mr. Phelps" had to be the stoolie. Love Preminger as the commandant, too.

It was a great movie because of William Holden in the anti-hero role. Otherwise, the movie would just be...eh.

  Always been a fan of this movie, especially Animal and Harry Shapiro.  I love their antics, especially painting their way to the Russian women's compound, and the scene where Animal thinks Harry is getting letters from women is priceless.

Yep, this is a great film.  Don't overlook the great old films, provide a lot to all films that come after.  Tonight on TCM (US) is Captain Blood, Errol Flynn's breakthrough film, very good.  Note Korngold's use of music; later did Adventures of Robin Hood (Academy Award) and many others.

This is a great movie.  William Holden is great.  I've never seen a Holden western I didn't like either.

Well,  "Streets of Laredo" was watchable, nothing great.

Would you gentlemen then recommend "Escape From Fort Bravo" then?  Heard it's very good, and it sounds more than a little similar to "Major Dundee".

  I can see the connection with the Union and Confederate soldiers having to work together to surive, but that's about where the comparisons end.  Don't get the wrong idea though, Fort Bravo is good, especially Holden.

  And it has a great ending with Holden and six or seven Union and Confederate soldiers, and the requisite woman, trying to surive in the middle of the desert amidst some Apache warriors.  It's a very original ending that I haven't seen in any other westerns.  Definitely worth a look, Grogs.
