The Real Glory

Gary Cooper is in uniform in The Real Glory, this time as a US Army lieutenant in the medical corps, stationed at some remote spot called Fort Mysang, in the Philippines. The time is 1906, when American expeditionary troops were evacuating, and native command was taking over the newly won possessions. Moro uprisings, guerrilla warfare, cholera epidemics and fancy exhibitions of inhuman cruelty are the frame against which an innocuous melodramatic yarn [from a novel by Charles L. Clifford] is told.

As a vehicle for Cooper, Real Glory offers him a chance to perform some unusual feats of gallantry, over a wide terrain. He is probably the busiest medical officer the army ever produced. And he takes all his assignments in his long stride. En route, romantic interest is established with the daughter of his ailing captain.
