PG-13 | | Adventure, Drama, Western
Lt. John Dunbar, exiled to a remote western Civil War outpost, befriends wolves and Indians, making him an intolerable aberration in the military.
The major studios wouldn't provide the proper funding. They took issue with the script's length and the amount of subtitles - the latter something that Kevin Costner and crew would not budge on - on top of the film being a western.
The king is dead...
Major Fambrough: Long live the king...
When Lt. Dunbar sees an Indian for the first time, as he takes cover, the very close shot of his face shows that the actor is wearing a false moustache.
