The Scarlet Coat Wednesday, July 5, 2pm
The Scarlet Coat is based upon the events in the American Revolution in which Benedict Arnold offered to surrender the fort at West Point to the British in exchange for money. Exteriors were filmed on location in Tarrytown, New York, including Historic Hudson Valley sites, in the autumn of 1954 to capture fall foliage for depicting the historical September 1780 time frame.  The film weaves a spy/counterspy tale in which the historical personage Major John André and the fictional Major John Bolton, each unaware that the other is attempting to outsmart him for the sake of their countries, deal with issues of honor, loyalty, and friendship.
Stars: Cornel Wilde, Michael Wilding, George Sanders , Anne Francis (born Ann Marvak on September 16, 1930 in Ossining, New York)                 Unrated/1h 47m
