| Sheer stupid greed
The film Fort Osage is marked by some truly stupid and greedy villainy. Because of that some truly preventable bad things happen.

Rod Cameron stars and he plays a wagonmaster who is refusing to take a train west and the settlers scheduled to travel want to know why. Easy enough, the Osage Indians are on the warpath. Cameron goes to Osage country to find out the answer.

His previous boss had his own treaty with the Osage. The tribe got a delivery of supplies with each wagon train for safe passage. Kind of like in Charge Of The Light Brigade where the British where the British stop their stipend to C.Henry Gordon, but trust he won't go on the warpath there.

Difference is that Morris Ankrum is more interested in money and Douglas Kennedy is a nasty sort in general. Kennedy dominates Ankrum in any event. Just sheer stupid greed.

At 6'5" Cameron cuts a taller figure in the saddle than John Wayne, he's also a bit stiffer in his acting. Ankrum and Kennedy are the real story in Fort Osage.
