Dobe And A Company Of Heroes is a 2002 Western film featuring the legendary actor Alex Cord in the titular role of Dobe, a former Civil War soldier. The movie is set in 1876, and Dobe is leading a group of heroes on a dangerous journey to rescue some captives from a notorious band of Indian fighters led by Captain Jack Hayes (played by Bruce Boxleitner), who is a brutal and merciless man.

The heroes that accompany Dobe on this mission are a band of colorful characters, each with their strengths and unique personalities. Harry Carey Jr. plays Ike, a former buffalo hunter and one of Dobe's oldest and closest friends. Ike is skilled with a rifle and is the most experienced and knowledgeable about Indian tactics, making him a valuable member of the team. He is also very wise and insightful, providing guidance and support to Dobe and the rest of the group.

Another member of the team is Willow (played by Beverly Garland), a tough and resilient woman who has lived among the Indians for years. She brings a unique perspective to the mission and has exceptional tracking skills that prove useful to the group. Willie also has a tragic past, which is slowly revealed throughout the movie, making her character more complex and interesting.

Other members of the team include Swenson (played by Howard Keel), the cook and the jolly one of the bunch, and Garcia (played by Buck Taylor), an experienced cavalry scout and excellent horseman. Together, they form a formidable group, always ready for a fight but also possessing a deep respect for the Native American culture and traditions.

The movie's plot revolves around the kidnapping of a group of women and children from a nearby trading post by Captain Jack Hayes and his men. Dobe and his team are recruited by their friend Fergie (played by Paul Brinegar), who owns the trading post, to rescue the captives. Fergie provides the team with valuable information on the location and strength of the enemy, giving them a tactical advantage.

From the moment the team sets out, they encounter one obstacle after another, including attacks by Indians, treacherous terrain, and lack of water. They also encounter suspicious characters along the way, including a group of men who are transporting a wagonload of dynamite.

The tension builds as the group approaches the enemy's camp, and Dobe must use all his skills to outsmart Hayes and his men. In the climactic battle, the heroes face overwhelming odds but manage to defeat Hayes and his men through a combination of courage, intelligence, and sheer grit. The movie ends with the group returning to the trading post with the rescued captives, celebrated as heroes by the local community.

Overall, Dobe And A Company Of Heroes is a well-made Western that benefits from its strong cast, excellent production values, and engaging storyline. The characters are well-drawn and memorable, and the action is intense and exciting. The movie pays tribute to the courage and resilience of the pioneers and the Native Americans during a challenging and violent time in American history, making it a must-watch for fans of the genre.
