Worth another look
11 February 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It had been years since I'd seen this film. It has been subject of a recent discussion by members of the Jeffrey Hunter group that I have just recently become a member of . As a previous reviewer commented, I would also buy it when and if it becomes available on video. Along with Seven Cities of Gold, it is one of Jeffrey Hunter's earliest outstanding performances, which he seldom gets the credit he deserves. As with most of the films that Hunter appears in with RJ Wagner, he gets short shrift. His performance as "Little Dog" is sensitive and realistic. Bearing in mind that the film was made in 1955,when the prevailing thought was "the only good Indian... well,you know, White feather stands up better than most.
