Trivia

The film was originally supposed to have a theme song. Composer Louis Forbes wrote a melody and asked noted Western songwriter Bob Nolan to contribute lyrics. The song, 'Montana,' was not used in the film, but Nolan's former group the Sons of the Pioneers recorded it. See more »

Quotes

Red Lance: My son, the time is not far when you must wear this buffalo helmet which is now mine. Your worries will be great, your problems will be many, but the greatest is not how to deal with the whites... but how to keep your own tribe together.

Pastoral western
10 February 2008 | by See all my reviews

A story about this movie goes like this:

THe production hired some Indians for a few measly dollars a day.But in the meantime,oil was found on their territory and they became millionaires But they had to honor their contract:so they came to the set in limos.

Some viewers have complained about a certain racism.I do not think it is so;there are villains among the Indian tribe and among the Whites.For Stanwyck,the film looks like a blueprint for her "Forty guns" (Fuller,1957),although it's less violent and less inventive.But Dwan makes us feel his love for nature
