| Cut down Kit
If this film does look familiar to you it's because the subject was done for a big budget independent film from United Artists twenty years earlier. Jim Davis's Jim Stockton is standing in for Jon Hall's Kit Carson from the original film. Kit Carson doesn't hold up very well today and this one even less so. Watching Frontier Uprising I was certain I had seen some of the footage before.

Things are reaching a boil between Mexico and the USA when Shoshone Indians attack Jim Davis and a group of Mountain Men making their way to Fort Bridger to sell their pelts. They've got rifles this time because the Mexicans have given them some. As we know giving rifles or selling rifles to Indians is a frontier no-no. But the Mexicans want to keep those Yankee settlers out of their sparsely held northern area and the much richer sea coast of California.

That's where Davis and two of his Mountain Men sidekicks, Ken Renard and David Mayer come in. They sign on as guides for a wagon train going west and some army troopers come along as well led by Lieutenant Don Kelly. Kelly and Davis start panting hot and heavy for Senorita Nancy Hadley going west to be reunited with her father Nestor Paiva.

I didn't that highly of Kit Carson and I think less highly of Frontier Uprising. Action fans will like it though.
