Not good.
14 May 2002 | by (Tecumseh ok) – See all my reviews

Don't tune into this one expecting to see alligators, Everglades and colorfully garbed Indians. Here, for some reason, the Seminoles are in TEXAS, riding the plains, living in Teepees and wrecking havoc. This is another of the cheapies, made in the 50s using much stock footage, much of the footage here came from "New Mexico"(1951). The story of the Seminole Indians has been done quite well in other pictures, most notably, "Seminole"(1953), "Distant Drums"(1951 and "Naked in the Sun"(1955). This is an easy one to pass up.
