Cavalrymen are shown shirtless at several points.

Some mild flirting between characters but nothing major.


Several battle scenes.

In the final battle an entire cavalry unit charges right through a canyon and they are all gunned down by Indians. Before this some of the men's wives are seen waving them off, which is emotional.


Shirley Temple's character uses the term 'p*ss-tosh' at one point.

Occasional use of 'hell' and 'damn'.


At some social occasions (e.g. Dances and parties) drinks are served and some people drink.


The final battle may be considered intense, but the film overall has a sort of campy, lighthearted feel to it.

The spoiler section in 'Violence and Gore' could be considered intense.

Total: 16/50.

Recommended for children of ages 8 and over.
