a fun movie
I just watched this. I may have seen it before, I don't know.

This was pleasantly predictable -- I dislike nasty surprises -- and quite a lot more politically correct than one would expect for the time it was shot.

Every man in the movie is hot for the woman -- claims to the contrary by some are absurd and sensationalist wishful thinking -- and she eventually goes for the good guy. Clint Walker's character evolves from somewhat self-serving to completely self-sacrificing.

John Russell is okay in a role very different from his usual. He as the Sioux leader and Clint Walker are both aware that the cause of Native Americans is lost and there is no point in piling up dead bodies in one pointless battle after another. The US Government had already torn the heart out of the entire Native American land.

Andra Martin is so hot it almost doesn't matter that they chose a blue-eyed actress over a brown-eyed one, as though one were more captivating than the other.

Clint Walker is a friend of a friend and I'm glad I saw this and that I appreciated it. It wasn't intended to be great art, just entertainment.
