The Glory Guys (1965) - (Tom Tryon) US one-sheet
This is a US 27" x 41" one-sheet poster designed by Frank McCarthy for the 1965 Arnold Laven film The Glory Guys based on the Hoffman Birney novel The Dice of God, a fictionalized retelling of the 1876 Custer massacre at Little Bighorn. Screenplay is by Sam Peckinpah and Tom Tryon stars as Captain Demas Harrod. Plot summary: Captain Demas Harrod and Army Scout Sol Rogers [Harve Presnell] compete for the love of Widow Lou Woddard [Senta Berger] while they also deal with worries about indian fighting and tensions with Army high command. As the film begins raw recruits line up in civilian clothing to meet their commanders prior to the start of prelimary training as cavalry troopers in a unit modeled after George Armstrong Custer's 7th Cavalry Regiment. In short order the green recruits are ushered into a concerted army campaign against battle-hardened Sioux warriors; their job is to force all the Sioux onto reservations.
