The Indians need the Buffalo to survive and the Government has promised to keep the herds free from hunters. But Carter, of Carter and Barton, just signed a big contract for furs and Buffalo meat so they want the herds. The only way they can get them is to rile the Indians up enough to go on the warpath and break the treaty. After the trouble starts, the Indians get the Colonel's daughter and hold her prisoner.

Did You Know?


Ferdinand Schumann-Heink is in casting call lists playing "Cliff" in this movie. But that character was played by Sam Rice. See more »


During the shootout with the Indians, a cowboy is shot and falls down, while another just to his rear shoots his rifle, drops it, and begins shooting with his pistol. This is shown twice at different times during the battle, from two different angles, first up close and then further away. See more »

Crazy Credits

In the opening credits, Dick Foran is called "The Singing Cowboy," but that designation is omitted in his subsequent on-screen credit. There his character surname is "Tyler," but he is called "Taylor" throughout the movie. Similarly, 'Carlyle Moore Jr.' is listed as "Little Big Wolf" in the credits, but is called simply "Little Wolf" in the movie. See more »

Not a bad cavalry movie
20 November 2017 | by See all my reviews

Pretty good old cavalry movie that is watchable because it moves along at a brisk pace. Amiable and always likable Dick Foran stars and sings with his fine baritone voice (enjoyable if you like 1930's style music). And his horse Smoke is an impressive animal.

Craig Reynolds, who later lost his movie career during a long absence becoming a decorated soldier in WWII, is an energetic bad guy who causes chaos on the frontier trying to hoodwink the Army and make a fast buck hunting buffalo. Little known Paula Stone is quite pretty and does an adequate job in one of her few movie roles. Authentic 20th century legend Jim Thorpe is effective as a Native American chief. Overall the cast is an entertaining group.

While certainly not Oscar-bait, this movie will manage to hold your attention, due to sheer energy and movement if nothing else.
