[Pacer, mortally wounded, visits his brother for the last time]
Don't come no closer. I just want to make sure you're all right. Don't try to help me, Clint. I've been killed already... Stubborn about dying.
Let me get the Doc!

Clair Huffaker's screenplay from his novel"Flaming Lance".
Clair Huffaker was a master story teller. His westerns are still read by true western aficionados. "Flaming Star" was Elvis's opportunity to act and to prove to the world that he could. Unfortunately the Colonel didn't want the world to know. This is one of Hollywood's best kept secrets. Maybe the fact that Elvis knew that he had actual talent for acting broke his heart, and those stupid Hall Wallis "sillies" must have driven Elvis crazy! Huffaker writes a good story of an interracial family harassed by prejudice and bigotry of the small western town. It is the struggle of two brothers in love with the same woman. It shows the love of a husband to his Indian wife. This film has enduring story.
