Just a bit curious about this…not very important after all these years!
When I was a young kid, I went to the pictures with my Ma, to see…something…maybe Battle Of Britain, Waterloo, Tobruck…that era…the late 60's or v early 70's.
Upon entering the cinema, there was either a Trailer or the end of last showing film…(no idea which!)…which was showing a Western fort with a load of dead cav…often hanging over the wall. I hardly remember it but it seemed quite good…at the time! lol.
I do not watch westerns much, but am a little curious over what film it may have been? Any Thoughts?

Sounds more like Beau Geste

There was a film called Fort Massacre also there was another where women were defending a fort dressed in uniforms with dead soldiers …. Fort Petticoat ?

Can't see how it could have gotten to a theater--unless someone spliced episodes together--but there was an old "Maverick" episode along lines similar to your description. The garrison was wiped out except for civilians locked in the guardhouse--which included (Bart?) Maverick, of course.

It's not an uncommon occurrence in westerns.

There was a spaghettis Western that featured a massacre in a fort, A Reason to Live, a Reason to Die, also known as Massacre of Fort Holman.
