The Late Movie: Sante Fe Trail (1940) – Errol Flynn,Olivia de Havilland,Raymond Massey, Alan Hale,Ronald Reagan – director Michael Curtiz


For some reason I have always liked this movie


Santa Fe Trail is a 1940 American western film directed by Michael Curtiz and starring Errol Flynn, Olivia de Havilland, Raymond Massey, Ronald Reagan and Alan Hale. Written by Robert Buckner, the film is about the abolitionist John Brown and his campaign against slavery prior to the American Civil War. In a subplot, J. E. B. Stuart and George Armstrong Custer compete for the hand of Kit Carson Holliday.

The film was one of the top-grossing films of the year, and the seventh Flynn–de Havilland collaboration. Its content has little relevance to the actual Santa Fe Trail.

The film is not to be confused with the Raoul Walsh movie They Died with Their Boots On, released the following year, in which Flynn plays Custer, also with de Havilland as his leading lady MORE AT LINK
