The Fighting Kentuckian

Strange Caravan

Production Company

In the aftermath of the Napoleonic War, the leader of a regiment falls in love with a woman whom he is determined not to allow her to marry his opponent against her will.

Great on-screen chemistry between John Wayne and Oliver Hardy in a half-decent adventure-comedy which incorporates both of their legendary previous screen personas.
