Hollywood became the stalwart of the neo-Nazi party particularly during the sixties to the eighties, and sparks of it were seen in the fifties, as in the case of this racist Western.
There isn't much story to the Western. It's the same neo-Nazi propaganda that became popular in later years, the same preaching of genocide by sex and race.
If one looks at the Westerns of Hollywood during these racist years, including TV series, one sees the same monotonous theme: that it was expected for dark haired women to die, but never dark haired men. This went over great with the ladies in the audience, because in truth we all prefer dark hair and skin. If a white man married an Indian woman, Hollywood saw it necessary to see the woman die, and perhaps the man, too, but whatever, it ended horribly for them.
However, the Indian man and blond white woman had nothing to worry about. There was never any suspense that Hollywood saw them as the only "true Americans", and they would always win.
This was hammered into the heads of the public so much that people today who are brought up on this in their baby years may not even know how brainwashed they are. Those of us born in the fifties weren't allowed to watch TV till we were about nine, and we at least knew we were being brainwashed.
This movie was the same old, same old, same old American racist preaching, and it's eaten up by the feeble minded, and by the female audience who prosper most under this system. For men, it's the most depressing world one can imagine.
This movie offers nothing, and was intended to preach genocide. It's sad that so many great performers were in this, and I'd like to think they didn't know what they were getting into.
