Why isn't there a "director's cut" of this movie in DVD format? It's editing caused Sam to disown the finished cut. During production Charleton Heston charged Sam on horseback with saber drawn, quick boomwork averted disaster. He also offered to forgo his salary to get it released. What an inigma. My appreciation is for the accurate depiction of historical details. Horse Cavalry at it's best even to bugle calls. Pre-revisionist accurate depiction of Apache depredations. Maximillian's French vs. Jauristas is also depicted without apology. The whole pathos of Confederate P.O.W.s who galvanized Yankee to serve on the frontier. Good drama with lots of action to keep the story rolling. "Bring it on..." history "in your face". Please, please, please give us a Directors cut DVD. Hollywood are you listening to middle America? JAmes Coburn's cameo as one armed scout is worth the watch alone.
