Eight years before Custer's stand at Little Big Horn, an officer of the Seventh Cavalry was found guilty of murder, stripped of his commission, and remanded to the civil authorities. Jump ahead to the mid-1870s: a gang is robbing stages, murdering all on board, and letting Indians take the blame. Two people escape an attack, gambler Bob Tate and Karen, a teen. Tate protects Karen, leading them to safety. Not long after, the Sioux and Cheyenne prepare to attack Custer, and someone must get word to him. How does this connect to the old murder charge?

It's the 7th Cavalry and Errol Flynn to the rescue...
Making extensive use of stock footage for all the battle scenes (from THEY DIED WITH THEIR BOOTS ON), this Warner short tells a half-baked story about an man wrongly accused of a crime who gets a chance to prove that he's really innocent of all charges.
It starts out at Ft. Lincoln and immediately goes into the Custer story for background information. Scenes of Indians around a campfire are lifted from BOOTS and then frequently reappear throughout, especially toward the end when the story reaches the Custer "Little Big Horn" sequence, inserting shots of the hero alongside those of Errol Flynn as Custer.
It's strictly a routine "shoot 'em up western" with a stagecoach robbery for starters, lacking any sort of inspired touch as regards acting and direction.
