The Charge at Feather River (11-Jul-1953)

Director: Gordon Douglas

Writer: James R. Webb

Music: Max Steiner

Producer: David Weisbart

Keywords: Western, 3D

Guy Madison and the rag-tag Guardhouse Brigade commence a mission to rescue to white women, captured in a raid years earlier, from the Cherokee. Some of the best 3D photography from its era, including a memorable scene of Frank Lovejoy spitting directly at the audience. One of the first films to use Sheb Wooley's "Wilhelm Scream", a standard sound effect used in hundreds of films; it received its name from Pvt. Wilhelm in this film.
