The Glory Guys is a Western film from 1965 that stars Tom Tryon, Harve Presnell, and Senta Berger. The movie follows the story of a group of soldiers as they are tasked with protecting settlers and supply wagons during a journey through the Wild West. The story begins with the arrival of Captain Demas Harrod (Tom Tryon) at an isolated frontier outpost. Despite his initial nonchalant attitude towards military life, Harrod is soon thrust into the middle of a conflict between the local Sioux tribe and a group of settlers who are attempting to move through Sioux territory.

As the journey begins, Harrod is put in charge of a ragtag group of soldiers that includes the sharpshooter Sol Rogers (Harve Presnell), the cynical veteran Hadley (James Caan), and the inexperienced young soldier Benson (Michael Anderson Jr.). The group is joined by several civilians, including a beautiful French woman named Lou Woddard (Senta Berger) who quickly catches Harrod's eye.

The journey is fraught with danger as the soldiers and settlers come under attack from the Sioux. The tension between Harrod and Sol Rogers builds as they vie for Lou's affection, and Harrod begins to question the morality of the mission as the body count rises.

The Glory Guys is a classic Western film that features all of the hallmarks of the genre: shootouts, horse chases, and plenty of western scenery. The performances from the lead actors are strong, particularly Tryon as the conflicted Harrod and Presnell as the charismatic Rogers.

One of the film's standout moments is an intense battle scene that takes place in a narrow pass as the soldiers attempt to hold off the attacking Sioux. The action is well-staged and the tension is palpable.

Despite its status as a well-regarded Western film, The Glory Guys does have some flaws. The pacing can be uneven at times, with some scenes feeling drawn out while others seem rushed.

Additionally, the film's treatment of the Sioux tribe is dated by modern standards. The Native Americans are portrayed as savage and bloodthirsty, with little depth given to their characters beyond their opposition to the settlers.

Overall, The Glory Guys is an entertaining film that will likely appeal to fans of Westerns. While it may not be the most innovative or groundbreaking movie in the genre, it is well-made and features strong performances from its cast.

The Glory Guys is a 1965 drama. It has received moderate reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 6.1.
