We finally caught up with this bold yet misconceived Robert Rossen drama, a desert trek in which Army major Gary Cooper must deal with 5 mutinous Medal of Honor nominees. It’s a lengthy discourse on bravery versus cowardice, held together by the fine actors Rita Hayworth, Van Heflin, Tab Hunter and Richard Conte. A lot to discuss here:  a masterful extra with the late, great Bertrand Tavernier makes the film ten times more interesting. A heck of a big desert battle, too. On Blu-ray from KL Studio Classics.
