Goofs

The film depicted a Shoshone encampment in which a totem pole was prominently displayed amongst the tee-pees. The Shoshone, nomadic in nature, did not have totem poles as part of their tribal culture. The totem pole was found only in cultures of the Indigenous peoples of the Pacific Northwest Coast of North America (Washington State and British Columbia, Canada). See more »

Horrible Film
15 May 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Thought I might be interested in this film because I like the acting of Stewart Granger over the years and in this so called film he plays the role of a so called superman named "Old Surehand" which is a big joke. The acting is horrible and you will be completely confused as to what is really going on between Indians and white people. This film should be called a comedy film because the entire film goes around in circle after circle and makes absolutely no sense at all. Elke Sommer, (Annie Dillman) was added to the film to give some romantic charm to the film but her acting and performance was a big waste of time. I wish I had never seen this film, it is a HORRIBLE FILM!
