Approved | | Romance, Western
An army doctor, with no combat experience, is forced to take command of a cavalry troop escorting a wagon train through hostile Indian country when the unit's commanding officer dies.
There's a scene where Indians are attacking the wagons full of soldiers and one Indian gets shot off his horse, then is run over by a wagon drawn by four horses. That wasn't a planned stunt--he was supposed to be "shot" and fall off the side of his horse, but the horse unexpectedly reared back and dumped him into the path of the wagon, which ran over him. He suffered numerous broken bones and ribs, but the scene was left in.
Capt. Robert MacClaw:
My troops has extra mounts, sir. I thought perhaps you would like to use one.
Col. Janeway: I'm an infantryman, MacClaw. If I'm going to die, I'm not going to do it sitting down.
The sergeant says the captain's straps have a black background. As a doctor, the straps would have had a green background. Yellow was the correct color for a cavalry officer. No service had a black background.
