Description by OLDIES.com:
John Wayne sets the wild "frontier" ablaze in this thrilling romantic adventure! Leading a regiment of Kentucky riflemen, Wayne passes through a settlement of dispatriated French families, all wealthy refugees of war from Napoleon's court. When there, Wayne's heart is captured by the French general's daughter. But a rich and powerful rival, Blake Randolph, also has his heart set on her. As the two suitors lock horns, Wayne discovers his rival has a nefarious scheme up his sleeve, and soon the courtship battle escalates into a full-scale war. It's "The Duke" at his best as the fighting Kentuckian battles for his love and the land of the free!
John Breen (John Wayne) is a a Kentucky soldier in the early 1800s who pauses on his way home from the Battle of New Orleans to battle land-claim jumpers and woo the daughter of a French general. Oliver Hardy (of Laurel and Hardy fame) does a solo comedic turn as Breen's sidekick.
