What are people saying?

  • Daniel S.'s rating of the film They Came to Cordura

    Robert Rossen has been waiting in Cinema's Purgatory for a long time now because of his behaviour during Mccarthysm in the early 50's. If you keep this in mind, the almost Christlike character Gary -Major Thorn (!)- Cooper becomes even more interesting. Will Gary, escorted by Rita -the Prostitute- Hayworth and five Judas, finally forgive them after having been despised and hated by the same people he wanted to save ?
