Quality entertainment here. Joel Mcrea, Barbara Stanwick and Earl Holliman pull it off along with some good supporting staff to bring us a movie with depth and feeling. The subject matter brings out any hidden prejudice and helps us to examine it in the light of reality. We go back in time when Indians were around and being rounded up and there are many tales to tell about that. This one involves a white woman taken captive and ending up having a son by an Indian chief. Not a very popular position back then and every generation since then has something to say about this subject. We see how we can choose between three choices while watching. Either we accept the situation, reject it or stand-up for it. The movie gives us those positions and more. It also ends on a positive note which back in the day was needful and helpful especially if the subject matter was controversial. Enjoy the horses, towns, dust, general store and stagecoach days as they came and went so quickly but affected many a life. Good movie to snack with a tasty drink too. I always enjoy Westerns that have a catchy tune either in the beginning or ending. This one has it in the middle of it not once but twice. The tune which was a story set to music makes sense. I couldn't help but think they should have done a sequel too. Mount up and lets ride.
