The Scarlet Coat
It takes a spy to catch a spy in this rousing Revolutionary War adventure directed by John Sturges and starring Cornel Wilde, Michael Wilding, Anne Francis and George Sanders. When top-secret military information is recovered from the body of a spy, American counter-intelligence officer Major John Bolton (Wilde) realizes there's a highly placed turncoat in the ranks. Posing as a deserter, Bolton plays a dangerous game as he pretends to work for the British while attempting to ferret out the traitor's name. Shot by Academy Award®-winning cinematographer Paul C. Vogel (Battleground, 1949) on locations in Sleepy Hollow and Tarrytown, New York, The Scarlet Coat is MGM at its swashbuckling best, an action-packed tale of duty, betrayal and honor.
