Three of the rivers mentioned in the movie, The Little Blue River, The Elkhorn River, and the Loup River, actually exist, however they are not close to the real Fort Kearny. The closest, the Loup River, is located over sixty miles from Fort Kearny.
The Little Blue River would be about a hundred miles from Fort Kearny, and the Elkhorn River is just west of Omaha, over one hundred and fifty miles east of Fort Kearny. See more »
A motor, likely a generator, is audible during the dialogue of several scenes and is particularly noticeable at six minutes into the film. Motors could not have been a natural background noise in Nebraska during the 1860's. See more »
This western is another entry in the Saturday matinée filler catalogue of Indians on the warpath. The main plot is a demand by the Indians for an Indian army scout and a siege at a trading post that results in the fireworks that follow. The action is decent and the 3D camera effects are good but cannot disguise the picture's low budget look. The cast is good and is perhaps the best thing about the film, in spite of the trite script. Phil Carey, Wallace Ford, Jay Silverheels, Pat Hogan and Maurice Jara are a treat to watch, and tough guy supreme Lee Van Cleef is on hand in one of his early roles. Roberta Haynes, who paired with Carey in other westerns, is the love interest in a triangle that plays out in the trading post during the siege by the Indians. Technicolor and music are good.
