Synopsis by Hal Erickson
We could be cute and say that The Campbells are Coming is about invading hordes of tomato soup cans. But we won't. Set during the Sepoy uprising of 1857, the film recounts the courageous activities of a Scottish regiment. Star Francis Ford (the brother of John Ford) also directed, bringing a keen sense of cinematic knowhow to the massive battle sequences. Ford's wife and costar Grace Cunard adapted the screenplay from a story by Emerson Hough.
