| A colorful but slow-moving western
The U.S. cavalry has the task of keeping white settlers out of the gold-rich Black Hills, thus maintaining a treaty with the Indians, the storyline of which has been done in countless other westerns. Rod Cameron and Forrest Tucker and Jim Davis head a good cast, but character development gets the edge over action and prevents the film from being a cut above the norm. Cameron and Tucker have starred together in other western films and their pairing always results in mutual dislike and creates tense moments. Chill Wills has several good scenes as a cavalry sergeant and the film has excellent technicolor values. There is a good cavalry-Indian skirmish but the slow, meandering plot development of angry and greedy citizens who want to ignore the treaty and mine gold deposits on Indian land results in an average movie.
