VERA CRUZ (Released to Theaters in the USA 1954)

 Ben Meyers’ Rating: 3.8|5.0 Starsììì 

Vera Cruz— better story than Silverado—becomes constipated toward the end of the film. The movie relies on actors Gary Cooper, Burt Lancaster, Jack Elam, and Cesar Romero to tell its western story. Look for Ernest Borgnine and appearances of Charles Bronson in the movie. This movie should satisfy western movie fans well.
