Trivia

First American movie filmed (in 1954) in Durango City, Mexico, because art director Jack Martin Smith liked the soundstages in the city and found the surrounding landscapes to be just what he was looking for. See more »

Goofs

When Appearing Day shows Josh Tanner how the Cheyenne were practicing for war, a camera shot shows several horses entering the fray. You can see that at least one of the horses has metal horseshoes, which would not have been the case in those days. See more »

Jeffrey Hunter´s watchable performance
11 November 2001 | by (Salzburg, Austria) – See all my reviews

"White Feather" could be a very interesting and memorable movie. But it became only "average", though there are some interesting view points about portraying the proud Cheyenne. Director Webb and Writer Daves give a more authentic look than any other western of that time. Jeffrey Hunter plays "Little Dog" a humane and very proud son of a chief. He is by far the best actor in the movie.

John Lund gives a solid performance. Robert Wagner looks good as the young hero but his acting...?

Completely undeveloped is the interesting character of Ann (pale: Virginia Leith): She is in love with Wagner but also feels sympathy for the Indians and especially for Wagner´s future wife Debra Paget (who were much better in "Broken Arrow" five years before).

The final scene is far too melodramatic and too long. It destroys the complete impression of the movie.

Positive Aspects beside Hunter´s sensitive portray and the description of the Indians are the great landscape and costly, effective mass-scenes.
