Megalomaniacal Austrian
31 May 2011 | by See all my reviews

Indian Territory comes right at the beginning of the paranoid Fifties as Gene Autry is pitted against a megalomaniacs Austrian bent on establishing an empire in our southwest. And he's going to use the Indians to do it. Is there no end to the dastardly schemes that movie villains have?

Phil Van Zandt plays the Austrian late Confederate raider and formerly of his Imperial Majesty Franz Joseph's Hussars replete with monocle and German accent. But he's not doing this alone. He's got James Griffith playing the Apache Kid, a most charismatic fellow, a mixed racial individual that the Indians do listen to.

Autry's on detached duty from the army to do this and has a running feud with Lieutenant Kirby Grant for rancher's daughter Gail Davis. It would have been nice to have given Grant a song here as the future Sky King of radio and television had a good singing voice as well. Would that were all that was wrong with the film.

The Indians, the young ones are made out as pretty stupid, of course not as stupid as the old ones who Autry gets to take care of the younger ones who are enamored of the Apache Kid.

But a megalomaniacs Austrian bent on conquest. Just where did they get the idea for that villain?
