Cannon for Corboa is set in 1912 and is based on the Pershing expedition into Mexico to capture Pancho Villa for his raid on Columbus, New Mexico. It seems six cannons have been stolen in a raid into the U.S. by bandit general Corsoba. General Pershing has had enough and wants to prevent the use of the cannons against American citizens. Since his invasion mission to capture Villa failed American troops are not allowed to cross the border. Pershing devices a plan to send in a small group of mercenaries led by Army Intelligence Officer Captain Douglas to attempt to recover or destroy the cannons.


  1. I know a lot of people that think this is a mediocre to bad film; but, I happen to really like it!
    It has some great action, a rousing musical score, Spanish locations, Giovanna Ralli, and Francine York---what else do you need for solid entertainment?
    Just my two cents...
