Patchwork cavalry-Indian western
28 June 2003 | by (Virginia) – See all my reviews

This western has a small budget look and the familiar plot of the U.S. cavalry rounding up Indians and returning them to their reservation. The movie is essentially that of the troopers skirmishing with the Indians and battling thirst before peace is restored. Another plot angle is a lieutenant's mixed heritage which causes romantic strife with his status-conscious fiancé. Most of the battle scenes are comprised of stock footage from other westerns which give this film a disjointed look. George Montgomery starred in many low-budget films of this type in the 1950s, and this movie doesn't offer anything new. Karin Booth plays Montgomery's romantic interest and Steven Ritch is the renegade chief whose Indians battle Montgomery's soldiers.
