      Movie Info

      Future president Andrew Jackson (Charlton Heston) rises to fame as a military hero and rescues love of his life Rachel Donelson (Susan Hayward) from an abusive marriage. A man from Tennessee -- which was at the time the edge of the American frontier -- Jackson endures as his critics and opponents characterize him as a rogue from the lawless West. But when his rival, Charles Dickinson (Carl Betz), insults Rachel, Jackson challenges him to a duel that results in a national controversy.

      • Nov 10, 2008

        Wonderful retelling of the love story between Rachel and Andrew Jackson. Susan Hayward and Charlton Heston make a perfect team her balance of warmth and grit softens his customary stiffness and rectitude. The ending is a tearjerker deluxe.
