Storyline

Three outlaws rob the stage and then flee. When their horses give out they murder some Indians to get fresh ones. But this puts the Indians on the war path and they have to take refuge in an Army fort to avoid them. The Indians then arrive offering peace if the three men are turned over to them. The fort's commanding Officer wants peace but the rules say the men must be tried in a white man's court leaving the Indians no choice but to attack.

Goofs

When Ike Vaughn (Gig Young) flees the fort with young Nancy Dempster, he runs and jumps on his horse and rides out of the fort through the open gate, and he is supposedly holding Nancy all the time with his left arm. But the action is rather violent, and the way he holds Nancy, you can only see her back. But her arms and legs flop around like a rag doll, which is clearly what he is holding, and not the real girl.

I can't believe I found it!
17 April 2006 | by (Connecticut) – See all my reviews

I was very excited to see this movie come up on the database. I remember seeing this movie in the theaters when I was young, and the song keeps going through my head, even now.

I have not seen it on TV at all, and would really LOVE to add this movie to my library. I know that what I remember as a child and what it would be like now are two completely different things, but since it took me at least 30 years to find anyone who even knew about this movie I think is an incredible thing.

It must have been pretty good, or I wouldn't have remembered the title, the song, or the movie all of these 50 odd years!!!!
