Goofs

When the wounded Wade Cooper passes out and falls face first into the stream after seeing Nancy Mailer bathing in it, he is lying with his face underwater and the broken arrow shaft is still protruding from the back of his right shoulder. When she goes to him seconds later and pulls him out of the water, he is lying mostly on the bank and his face is no longer under water, though he is still unconscious, and the arrow is missing. Later, when she arrives with him back at her camp, the arrow is back in his shoulder. See more »

An Outlaw Too Good To Be True
22 March 2008 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Blood on the Arrow is a rather confused western that stars Dale Robertson, Martha Hyer and Wendell Corey. It's got everything in it, cavalry, outlaws, Indians and a damsel in distress. Lest no one be confused the damsel is Martha Hyer.

Martha finds a wounded Dale Robertson, an outlaw separated from his men, and brings him back to the trading post where she endures a loveless marriage with Wendell Corey. But before the film is over they will have to put up with Apaches jumping the reservation and Robertson's men, none of whom are as scrupulous as he.

For an outlaw Dale's a little too good to be true. When the Indians kidnap young Dandy Curran, Hyer's son, Robertson gets his men involved in a scheme to rescue the lad that involves stealing army rifles and arming the Apaches. A big old no-no in any Hollywood western.

Personally while I think Martha's beautiful, one of the most beautiful women ever in films, I just can't swallow Dale risking all for her. If I was him, I'd have kept on riding.

The cast performs well, certainly Robertson is no stranger to the Hollywood west. But the film's just a tad bit too unreal for my taste.
