Fake Indians
1 September 2003 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Theres nothing I hate worse than when Hollywood puts make-up on white people and tries to pawn them off as ethnic. The chief in this movie is obviously a Native American but Warren Oates with brown makeup saying "how" is just stupid. All credibility for this film is lost because of this. Glen Ford is good but the actress they chose for his wife does nothing but scream and nag at him in every scene. Terrible.
