Description

1940s adventure drama from film maker Cecil B. DeMille starring Gary Cooper and Paulette Goddard. After being accused of a felony, Abigail (Goddard) is sentenced to 14 years of slavery in America. Captain Christopher Holden (Cooper) wins Abigail at auction and later releases her, much to the anger of the villainous Martin Garth (Howard da Silva) who wanted her for himself.

It is up to Holden to save Abigail and put a stop to Garth's schemes.

Overview
England, 1763. After being convicted of a crime, the young and beautiful Abigail Hale agrees, to escape the gallows, to serve fourteen years as a slave in the colony of Virginia, whose inhabitants begin to hear and fear the sinister song of the threatening drums of war that resound in the wild Ohio valley.
Synopsis
Legendary showman Cecil B. DeMille directed this lavish historical drama about the conflict between Native Americans and colonists in the pre-Revolutionary War American wilderness. Paulette Goddard stars as Abby Hale, an English convict sentenced to slavery in America who is bought and freed by militiaman Chris Holden (Gary Cooper). However, Martin Garth (Howard Da Silva), a treacherous supplier of illegal arms to the Indians, has other plans for Abby and manages to rebuy her with the worst of intentions. Abby becomes an indentured servant for Garth, toiling bravely for her cruel owner. But Chris is not far from Abby and quickly realizes he has been double-crossed by the dangerous man. Chris gallantly rescues Abby and takes her in while Martin goads powerful Seneca Indian chief Guyasuta (Boris Karloff) to attack the colonists. Suddenly peace-loving Chris must contend with the warring Senecas, with Martin, and with his own feelings for Abby. In true DeMille style, the dynamic duo fight the wilderness surrounding them, escaping everything from Indian massacres and death-defying waterfalls to burning stakes and political ambush. Through it all DeMille manages to capture the gutsy determination of American colonists with his trademark air of spectacle and action-packed peril. UNCONQUERED was based on the novel by Neil H. Swanson.
