Enjoy it for what it is!
18 February 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I find all the criticism of the movie amusing! Lack of accents, the choice of Paulette Goddard, etc., you folks are missing the point. It is a great movie in the tradition of all great movies, simply entertaining! I watched this as a kid in the 50's and still enjoy the story of Fort Pitt at the edge of the end of civilization. The story was accentuated by the fact I had an uncle living in Pittsburgh and every time I visited him the though of Indians, the frontier and colonists came to the forefront of my mind.

Think Indiana Jones, sit back with your popcorn and simply enjoy the movie!
