Trivia

There was a post indicating that the battle took place in 1875, when in fact the battle occurred on June 25, 1876. See more »

Goofs

At the end of the film an American flag can be seen. It has 38 stars which depicts the 38 States. Colorado being the 38th state entered the union in 1876 yet the Battle of Little Big Horn occurred in 1875 thus the wrong flag. See more »

hardly a prairie turkey
28 September 2005 | by (Birmingham, England) – See all my reviews

I write this having read two damning criticism of a film which was strong enough for me to watch the whole way through. Living in the age of televised war games where tens of thousands of warriors can be immediately created remember that just 271 members of the Seventh Cavalry died at the Battle of the Big Horn. Presumably equally divided into three bands of ninety for reasons which I have yet to fathom although the politicking glory hunting which drove Custer to get there first was perhaps the driving theme of this film which must have cost its producers a fortune as it was clearly shot mainly in uninhabitable shrub land and certainly not in the gold bearing rocks of Dakota. And was it closer to the truth than so many other attempts ? it suspect so as luck - sorry Gluck - the screenwriter - would have it ? So apart from Sitting Bull speaking perfect English and the redemption of Joseph Cotton from drunken hater of almost everything to a credit to the US Army I have little complaint with what was a slight thought provoking 90 Minutes.
