Goofs:
Continuity: In the duel on horseback between Johnny and Notah, Johnny rides a black horse and Notah is on a brown horse. After it's over, the wounded Johnny rides into view and falls off a brown horse. Then when it's time to lead the Comanches back to the reservation he's back on a black horse again.See more »
Quotes:
Johnny Moon:Notah is well-named... his liver is white, like his Yankee father... his heart burns blacker than the skin of his Comanche mother. He's white-bellied, like his name..."The Snake."
Notah:Notah's brother talks like the white man he thinks he is. He's afraid... to be Comanche.

AKA "The White Commanche", 1 January 2003
Author: Jim-499 from United States

I watched this as a kid in Hacienda Heights, CA and enjoyed it only because I was a big, 11-year-old Star Trek fan at the time and this came on in the middle of the original series run. Have not seen it since it's original run but remember Shatter doing his Commanche war cry that sounded like the horse winnies that came form his mouth in the original series Star Trek episode "Plato's Step Children" where a midget was on his back.
