They Came To Cordura is a 1959 western film directed and co-written by Robert Rossen that was based on the 1958 novel of the same name by Glendon Swarthout. When his frontier garrison is attacked by revolutionist Pancho Villa's troops in 1916, U.S. Army Calvary officer Tom Thorn (Gary Cooper) acts in a way that is deemed cowardly and brings shame to himself and his rank. From then on, he is obsessed with the concept of courage and why some people possess it when he apparently doesn't. His troops are assigned to take part in the Pancho Villa Expedition to Mexico to catch the revolutionist, and he recommends four of his men for a Medal of Honor after the battle. He and the men are called back to Cordura and are charged with escorting a prisoner, Adelaide Geary (Rita Hayworth), who aided and sheltered a U.S. enemy. On the return trip, a number of difficult incidents test the heroes' and coward's courage, giving Thorn a second chance to become a hero himself.moreless
