At the closing of 1874 a haunted, dying Wild Bill Hickcock teams up with a grieving Crazy Horse to hunt a murderous albino buffalo.
This movie was made and released about two years after Richard Sale's novel of the same name was first published in 1975.
What the Hell is going on?
Wild Bill Hickok: I had a dream.
Amos Bixby: If there'd been anyone in the upper, you'd have sent him to Hell on a shudder.
Wild Bill Hickok: Sorry, Mister Bixby.
Amos Bixby: My God, Mister Otis. You will stow those damned irons in your carpet bag or I'll stop this train and set ...
Crazy Horse only learns of Hickock's true identity when Charlie curses him at the end. However, earlier in the film, as Jack Kylene is challenging Hickock on the mountain, he shouts his name numerous times before Crazy Horse kills him with arrows. Kylene's voice echoes repeatedly. Crazy Horse would easily have heard him.
The final credits play between two sepia oval portraits of the two principal actors in character, with the captions: "J.B.Hickok - Born 1837- Murdered 1876" and "Crazy Horse - Born 1842- Murdered 1877".
