The 1965 American Civil War film Shenandoah, directed by Andrew V. McLaglen is starring James Stewart and featuring Doug McClure, Glenn Corbett, Patrick Wayne, and, in their film debuts, Katharine Ross and Rosemary Forsyth. The American folk song “Oh Shenandoah” features prominently in the film's soundtrack. The film centers around a family, who vows to remain neutral in the conflict. However, when one of the sons is captured by Union soldiers, the family goes to the rescue. Though set during the American Civil War (1861–65), the film's strong antiwar and humanitarian themes resonated with audiences as attitudes began to turn against the Vietnam War (1955–75) in the United States in the mid-1960s.
