I dislike cavalry movies but the only reason I watched this was because of Audie Murphy. I certainly could give it a miss the next time it is shown on tv.
The story is so very predictable, but that is not the reason why the movie falls flat. None of the characters are endearing. The leading lady is a pretty bad actress and wholly unlikeable! All the stereotypes are reinforced here: indians are red-skinned savages, the woman screams when she sees a 'friendly' indian at the fort because, well, 'she is only a woman'; and the Murphy character is friends with the Navajo only to appease his guilty feeling for some past atrocity committed against them by his father.
One good thing about this is that Audie looks good!
