So-so film with interesting cast
18 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This color western from the 1950's is most notable for a rare, non-Lone Ranger appearance by Clayton Moore (unbilled) and Jay Silverheels. The story is engaging but most of the cast seems detached from their performances.

Jay Silverheels stands out in a great role as the Native-American leader. Gary Merrill does the best with the script given him. the action scenes are well-staged and help move the average script along.The storyline is a familiar one, but the top-notch production value makes this one worth checking out This is not a great western, but there are worse ways to kill an hour of your free time.
