A Fistful Of Westerns
TITLE : Vera Cruz YEAR OF RELEASE : 1954 CLASSIFICATION : PG DIRECTOR : Robert Aldrich STARRING : Gary Cooper, Burt Lancaster, Denise Darcel, Cesar Romero, George Macready, Ernest Borgnine, Charles Bronson, Jack Elam.
TAGLINE: The Giants Battle In The Biggest Spectacle Of Them All!
Legendary screen icons Gary Cooper (High Noon) and Burt Lancaster (Elmer Gantry) team up for a magnificent, action-packed western from director Robert Aldrich (The Dirty Dozen) and screenwriters Roland Kibbee and James R. Webb. With sweeping vistas and larger-than-life heroics, its a tale as bold and rugged as the characters it so brilliantly depicts.
Cooper and Lancaster portray Benjamin Trane and Joe Erin, two daredevil mercenaries who journey into Mexico in search of adventure - and hard cash - during the 1866 revolution. But they get more than they bargained for when the wealthy and beautiful Countess Duvarre hires them to escort her (and a fortune in gold) to Emperor Maximilians fighting forces in Vera Cruz. The trail is fraught with danger, betrayal, and murder and when Ben is swept up in the revolutionary fervour, he and Joe find themselves at odds with the Mexican army - and each other.
