Dark Command


After the Texas transplant, Bob Seton arrives in Lawrence, Kansas, who loves this place, especially Mary McCloud, the daughter of a local banker. However, politics is in the air. This is just before the civil war and there is already a clear division on whether it will remain free of slaves. When he gets the chance to run for the Marshal, Seton faces the respected local teacher William Cantrell. However, it doesn't seem. Cantrell is a prominent citizen in public and is dangerously ambitious and willing to do anything to impress his territory and wealth. If he loses the Marshal race, he will form a group of invaders who will let weapons into the territory and rob and terrorize settlers across the territory. Finally, Seton and Lawrence's good citizens in Confederate uniforms face one another in a final battle with Cantrell and his invaders.... Show more


Dark Command is one of my favorite movies from year 1940. The term 'Best' is as you know a relative term. What you or I consider as the best may not even be in someone else's top list. So the general rule is to proclaim the one which majority of the folks like as the best. Nevertheless, according to me the following can be regarded as some of the finest movie ever made. The film is a fast-paced sensational story. I was afraid that knowledge of the plot would in some way take away the joy of watching, but it did not happen. I did not know anything about this movie before, I did not even see a trailer, but I enjoyed it very much in the first place. I regret that I did not see online Dark Command before, although I had the opportunity. Watch Dark Command full hd or 4k by clicking play button.... Show more
