Implausible and unpleasantly dated

4/10
Author: thedavidovitch from Leeds, UK

A real B movie Western that's showing its age. Of course it wasn't unusual during the genre's heyday to find white actors playing Native Americans or to find story lines that portrayed them as duplicitous savages, but the breathtaking racism of this script, coupled with some hilarious casting, with a quite obviously blue-eyed white guy as the Sioux chief, makes it a pretty challenging watch for a modern audience.

Some nice cinematography and decent enough fight scenes are mildly diverting, but it's certainly not a classic of the genre. More, it's a reminder of how, at worst, the Western was a pretty ruthless exercise in historical revisionism.

The weakest of the Clint Walker / Gordon Douglas trilogy

6/10
Author: dinky-4 from Minneapolis
30 August 2004

While filmed (in color) on a larger scale than either "Fort Dobbs" or "Gold of the Seven Saints," this is the weakest of the three westerns which teamed actor Clint Walker with director Gordon Douglas. Its chief fault lies in the tentative nature of the relationships which bind together the movie's three major characters. At first the movie seems to be about tough, experienced Clint Walker and naive, bumbling Edward Byrnes. Then the movie seems to be about Edward Byrnes falling in love with Andra Martin who may simply be using him for her own purposes. By the end of the movie, however, the movie seems to have become a romance pairing Clint Walker with Andra Martin.

None of these three relationships seem plausible and none of the participants seem to have convincingly deep feelings for anyone else. The script manipulates its characters but never succeeds in giving any of them an internal life. Particularly shortchanged are the Indian characters, none of whom look "Indian" and all of whom are saddled with dialog of the "many horses have I" variety.

The acting is passable but has the superficial quality of a TV show. This is not surprising since the cast largely consists of loan-outs from Warner Bros' TV series: Clint Walker from "Cheyenne," Edward Byrnes from "77 Sunset Strip," and John Russell from "Lawman." Even Andra Martin has a connection to Warner Bros' television, being married at one time to Ty Hardin from the "Bronco" series.

Though this movie lacks the homoerotic undertones of "Gold of the Seven Saints," it does have a scene of sexual ambiguity showing Edward Byrnes bedding down for the first night in Clint Walker's log cabin. Both men are shirtless. (Curiously, this is the only time in the entire movie Clint displays that famous chest of his.) Clint lies face-up on his bed while Byrnes lies face-down on his. They engage in a long, disjointed conversation, all the while exchanging glances at each other.

This scene follows a bit of dialog in which Walker says he'll have to make a (separate) bed for Byrnes. Byrnes says this won't be necessary, a remark which can be interpreted in two different ways.
