A historical western unpretentious but entertaining and well done
It is a humble unpretentious film that sees perfectly and has what it takes to be entertaining without being heavy in no time and with the appropriate duration. It is a film committed to the cause as it tries to Native Americans with respect and admiration they deserve, with ideals and faith extolling the best human values.
The script has good dialogues and noble intentions and a nice picture and a good direction by Arnold Laven. Also noteworthy is the beautiful soundtrack by Hugo Friedhofer specialist.
Despite the passage of time, is a good classic western noble intentions and low budget look and holds up well deserves its no less than 50 years. It is a recommended film for all classic film scholars.
The actors have a magnificent performance with that naivety typical of the time and that is no longer in vogue.
