A Thunder of Drums (1961)

NR 09/26/1961 (US) Western 1h 37m

A regiment of forgotten men... a woman no man could forget!


Captain Maddocks will never be promoted beyond Captain because of a mistake that he made in the past. Lt. McQuade is a green rookie who is now under the command of the tough Captain and he does not seem to be able to do anything right. Lt. McQuade also has trouble with Tracey, but it will be the renegade Indians that will test him and teach him the importance of following orders.
