Cannon For Cordoba (DVD)
Directed by Paul Wendkos
A rousing, action-filled historical adventure! During the 1912 Mexican Revolution, Capt. Rod Douglas (George Peppard, Operation Crossbow) leads a small group of misfits into Mexican territory to destroy six cannons before rebel leader Hector Cordoba (Raf Vallone, The Secret Invasion) and his bloodthirsty revolutionaries get their hands on them. Under direct orders from General John J. Pershing (John Russell, Fort Massacre), Douglas heads to a U.S. Army fort across the Texas border to face down Cordoba with the help of Mexican military officer Antonio (Gabriele Tinti, Rider on the Rain) and alluring and beautiful local Leonora (Giovanna Ralli, The Mercenary). Paul Wendkos (The Mephisto Waltz, Special Delivery) directed this exciting western that features a rousing score by the great Elmer Bernstein (The Scalphunters) and strong supporting cast that includes Pete Duel (The Hell with Heroes), Don Gordon (Fuzz), John Larch (Dirty Harry) and spaghetti western star Aldo Sambrell (Navajo Joe).
