Average take on of the frontiersman's heroics suffering dangerous adventures
15 April 2009 | by See all my reviews

This is a low-budgeted film about the famous Daniel Boone(Bruce Bennet). After the guidance a party settlers from North Caroline to the fertile valley of Kentucky, Boone undergoes several adventures . This time Boone is living along with his wife and sons in Boonesborough, when his eldest son is kidnapped and murdered by the Shawnees Indians. Boone unites a group to track down a carriage full of children that is surrounded by the Indians, but he's taken prisoner and submitted risked proof, but later he escapes. Chief Blackfish(Lon Chaney Jr) and Boone accord a meeting in the location named thousand waterfalls but an Indians masquerading as white men threatening the peace. Then the Indians attack the fort Booneesborough.

This shoe-string budget movie chronicling the further feats of our frontier hero, displays adventures, action, and spectacular outdoors . Filmed in Mexico and with Mexican actors as secondaries such as Claudio Brook and Eduardo Noriega, and giving a surprisingly good acting by Lon Chaney Jr including a touching weeping. Worn-out color, granulated and lousy cinematography in spite of gorgeous landscapes. The flick is regularly directed by Albert Gannaway , also in charge of production and soundtrack which includes some songs. The film didn't help to spread Boone-mania among the kids of the 50s and 60s. Another adaptations about this frontiersman hero are : the classic version(1934) by David Howard with George O'Brien and John Carradine, and the known TV series with Fess Parker.

The picture is partially based on real deeds , the actual events are the following : Daniel Boone(1734-1820) long hunter, Indian fighter, trail-blazing pioneer and first of the frontier folk heroes was born in Pennsylvania. Moving to North Carolina he settled in the Yadkin Valley, supporting his family by hunting, often making long trips for profitable animal skins. The long hunters were so called because their long wildness hunts might last more than a year. Boone was impressed by the Indian hunting grounds of Kentucky and determined to make his home in this unsettled ,fertile land rich with game.The journey was thwarted by hostile Indians who killed six of the party including Boone's eldest son . With a band of hardy woodsmen, Boone set forth and blazed a trail, known as the Wilderness Road,through the Cumberland Gap of the Appalachian Mountains to the Kentucky River, where they built a fort named Boonesborough, to which later brought his family and a group of settlers. In January 1778 Boone was captured by Shawnee Indians and adopted into tribe as the foster-son of Chief Blackfish. In June escaped escaped to warn Boonesborough of an impeding Shawnee attack. Frustated by legal nullification of his Kentucky lands claims, Boone moved on to Missouri. Boone died aged eighty-six in his son's farmhouse in Missouri.
