Storyline

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.

Trivia

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

Goofs

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 »

Buffalo Hunters Stirring Up the Indians
19 September 2006 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Just when things get peaceful between the Comanche and the white man, some buffalo hunters get to stirring things up.

Henry Otho and Craig Reynolds have a buffalo hunting business and new treaties with the Comanche guarantee the buffalo's survival on their reservation. That's going to put them out of business so the Indians have to go on the warpath.

Shooting the chief's sons should do the trick and to make sure, have your men wear cavalry uniforms. The chief, famous Olympic athlete Jim Thorpe, falls for the scheme.

It takes army captain and son of former Indian agent Dick Foran to straighten the whole thing out. That is with some time for a couple of songs to romance the daughter of post commandant Monte Blue, Paula Stone.

Foran was in his Warner Brothers period as their singing cowboy answer to Roy, Gene, and Tex. No memorable songs here, although the film does start out with the cavalry riding out of the fort led by Foran singing like Nelson Eddy with his Mountie chorus. Well if it worked for MGM..........
