There was a post indicating that the battle took place in 1875, when in fact the battle occurred on June 25, 1876. See more »
The battle took place in June of 1876. The American flag seen at the end of the film has 38 stars representing 38 states. The 38th state, Colorado, was not admitted to the Union until August 1, 1876, more than a month after the battle. See more »
About the only redeeming quality is Joseph Cotton and, in this instance, that is not saying a lot.
But what really gets me is: About 30-40 minutes of this film is footage from another western made 11 years earlier--"Sitting Bull (1954)." In this movie, the Indians ride down on Custer from what could be northern California Sierra Nevada's or even somewhere in South Dakota while the 7th cavalry is riding through the arroyo's of southern New Mexico or western Arizona and they combine the footage from both films to make it look like they are fighting one another. The footage from Sitting Bull is also used in many things such as the escape from the stockade by the Indians and also various scenes when the Indians are shot and fall off their horses. One Indian, for instance, falls off his horse and practically rolls right into the camera on Sitting Bull and that same Indian, on the same horse, falls off again in this movie and practically rolls right into the camera. I have them on video back to back and am able to view them so it makes it really easy to detect the same scenes from the earlier movie being used.
It's cheap and shoddy!
