Movie Info

After escaping from a Confederate prison during the Civil War, Union officer Errol Flynn vows to stop a $5,000,000 gold shipment from reaching the South. He is challenged by Southern sympathizer Randolph Scott, whose interest in the gold is patriotic, and by outlaw Humphrey Bogart, whose interests are purely mercenary.

A moving reflection on the bloody conflict between the North and the South United States. [Full review in Spanish]

April 9, 2021 | Full Review…

The wheels were starting to come off the Curtiz and Flynn collaboration by this point, but there's just enough going on here and there to make it a worthwhile curio, at the very least.

July 10, 2016 | Rating: 6/10 | Full Review…

A film Bogart would like to forget, as he's saddled with a bad Mexican accent portraying a bandit.

Audience Reviews for Virginia City


Average western with Flynn strong in the lead, Bogie terribly miscast in one of his last supporting roles, High Sierra and the Maltese Falcon were only a year away. Would have been better if it was a half hour shorter.
