When fighting breaks out between two cultures in West Texas, the mixed-blood Pacer tries to act as a peacemaker, but the "flaming star of death" pulls him irrevocably into the deadly violence.
The original title for this movie was "Black Star". Elvis Presley even recorded a song by that name. After the title was changed he re-recorded the song, using the same words and melody but changing the word "black" to "flaming". The song "Black Star" was unreleased for years, until it appeared on the Elvis boxed set "Collectors Gold" in 1991.
If you hurt that child, I'll get you, you godless savage!
Pacer Burton: Stay where you are, Pierce!
Ben Ford: You heard Dred, Indian! Any harm comes to that girl and you're dead in a minute!
Pacer Burton: Just keep talkin', Ford and you'll be dead now!
When Sam Burton is hit deadly by three Indian arrows in his back, the Indian Warrior who shot the last arrow into his victim approaches the dying man in order to take his scalp. Sam lies with the front of his body to the ground the three arrows protruding out of his back. The Indian reaches Sam, turns him around and is shot by Sam who uses his last vitality strength to kill his murderer: to achieve this goal he has to lift his right arm to fire his colt on the Indian Brave thereby revealing that the three arrows that had been sticking in his back one second before are gone! They are not broken but still sticking in his body as would be the case in real life, no, they have dissolved into nothingness.
