Leave it to romance to further bring down a cowboy movie. I'm a sucker, though, for color western landscape cinematography, so, for me, THAT was a positive about this film. I also thought that the location might be in the southeastern US. But the Seminoles herein are conducting their raids in Texas, as a result of which, Lt. Elliot's force has been summoned by Col. Hannah to enhance his own Cpt. Dudley's men. Additionally complicating is the fact that Col. Hannah's daughter, Susan - once the apple of Lt. Elliot's eye - is now engaged to Cpt. Dudley, who is deeply in debt, which leads to two of his hostages being given to a creditor, who's wife and son died while captives of the Indians. That creditor then kills those hostages, who are the wife and son of the chief, which, in turn, causes Susan to get kidnapped, needing rescuing by the two officers. Oh yeah - other elements to the drama are that Lt. Elliot MAY be the brother of his foe; and, water will be scarce when the soldiers return from where Susan is. This profuse plot and mostly adequate acting notwithstanding, I, nevertheless, withheld a passing grade.
