In 1898 the US government, led by Theodore Roosevelt (Tom Berenger) back when he was still a young, ambitious Naval Secretary, intervenes on the side of the Cuban rebels in their struggle against Spanish rule. Always ready for action, Roosevelt leaves the confines of the sidelines and forms a volunteer cavalry regiment which later became infamously known as the "Rough Riders." Roosevelt's regiment brings together volunteers from all corners of the nation to fight against a far superior adversary in one of the most rousing victories in American history.
You Know My Name
You Know My Name is the fact-based story of Bill Tilghman, a lawman and former partner of Wyatt Earp confronted by an emerging era when outlaws run whiskey instead of cattle and are likely to tote a tommy gun as carry a six-gun. An ideally cast Sam Elliott plays Tilghman, whose life takes on a newfangled wrinkle of its own. Tilghman makes a moving picture of his Old West exploits; and the success of that silent film, The Passing of the Oklahoma Outlaws, spreads his reputation like a brushfire. But that reputation may mean nothing to a thug (Arliss Howard) who hides behind a badge.
Editor's NoteIf the rugged plateaus and dusty canyons of the American West could find human form, they'd likely take the shape of actor Sam Elliot. Whether in small parts (THE BIG LEBOWSKI) or lead roles (ROUGH RIDERS), his husky voice and timeworn features signal to the audience that a rolling tumbleweed and a smoking Peacemaker can't be far away. This collection includes ROUGH RIDERS, YOU KNOW MY NAME, and THE DESPERATE TRAIL. Please see individual titles for complete synopsis information.
