This colorful western adventure has a nice mixture of action and moral dilemma as hostilities break out between the cavalry and Indians. Charlton Heston, in one of his early roles, is obliged to walk a fine line between loyalty and treason, as an adopted son of a chief and as a cavalry scout. The picture was filmed in South Dakota's lush Black Hills, a country of great natural beauty. There are cavalry-Indian skirmishes and intrigue at the army post as Heston plays both ends against the middle. As both sides prepare for battle, the pressure mounts for Heston to be a hero or a renegade, and bring peace or destruction for his Sioux brethren. Peter Hansen, Richard Rober and Milburne Stone are among the good cast and Susan Morrow and Joan Taylor are the ladies who are smitten with Heston, one as a scout, the other as a Sioux warrior. Paul Sawtell contributes another fine score, a spare, melancholy accompaniment to a golden-age western.
