Goofs

"Major Benton" is obviously based on Major Frederick Benteen, but his actions in this film do not relate very directly to his historic basis. Benteen may have hated Custer, but was too professional a soldier to strike his commanding officer, no matter how much he wanted to. See more »

Chronic attempt to retell Custer's Last Stand
13 June 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A massacre indeed. A lot of it seems to have been cannibalised from much better (and certainly bigger budget) efforts; an expert on Westerns could soon tell you exactly which ones. Joseph Cotten is supposed to be playing a drunk, but one begins to wonder where acting ended and reality started. Darren McGavin and Philip Carey (as Custer) are just awful. The Indians are strictly of the 'Carry On Cowboy' variety, and one almost wished Sid James & Charles Hawtrey to appear in order to relieve the tedium of the proceedings. Any intention of presenting the Sixties 'Red Indians' as 21st Century 'Native Americans,' and any attempt to portray Custer's complicated character, are defeated by the awful script and poor technical standards. This is not Custer's Last Stand at all, but a very lumpy custard that is impossible to swallow.
