Indians create an ambush using a net drawn across the river to stop Lewis and Clark. Upstream the Indians push logs into the water to hit the canoes. The team try to push them away causing the canoes to rock - during which you can see the shiny hull of two canoes come out of the water - clearly made of fiberglass. See more »

Colorful adventure but not true history
8 May 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

For what it is, an almost total fabrication of the events involved in the exploration of the Louisiana territory, the film is an enjoyable, beautifully shot adventure but for the real story look elsewhere. Donna Reed is ridiculously cast as Sacajawea, Katy Jurado who was actively working in Hollywood at the time would have been far more suitable. She gives an earnest reading of the part but if this is the best the studios could find for her after her Oscar win it's little wonder that she had moved over to TV within a few years. MacMurray although first billed actually disappears for several stretches of the film and Heston, who is ideal in this sort of picture, carries the bulk of the movie.
