Overview
In an era when James Stewart had his Winchester '73, Gary Cooper took aim at the box office with a Springfield Rifle, the film that followed his Academy Award®-winning performance in High Noon.

Few actors personified the West like the Montana-born screen legend. Here, in a brawling Civil War-era sagebrush saga co-written by Gunsmoke creator, Charles Marquis Warren and directed by action master Andre de Toth, Cooper plays Lex Kearny, a U.S. Army major posing as a Confederate sympathizer. Kearney's ruse unmasks rustlers of Union horses, even though his true allegiance is revealed. Ultimately, the major and his troops are outmanned and outgunned. But with the experimental weapon that makes one man the equal of five, they won't be outfought!
