Storyline

A hard-drinking, reckless-living Indian named Flapping Eagle decides that his people have been pushed around by the white man long enough. Mounting his horse H-Bomb, Flap proceeds to hijack a railroad, lasso a helicopter, and begin the Last Great Indian Uprising. His assaults on the Establishment provide an earnest indictment of Indian neglect by the U.S. government. Written by alfiehitchie

i still think about this one
17 July 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

i saw this at a drive in 1971.i'll always think of it every time authority figures disrespect people who want to try to do what's right or fair(that's near-constantly in today's world).flap just wanted what everyone wants,he was kinda sneaky,but mostly he was trying to help his friends(and having fun at the expense of the authorities)i laughed and still do,even though i can't remember a lot of it now.Anthony Quinn did a great job of acting,creating a character that i can relate to and identify with.it is not only politically significant,but very entertaining.this should be re-released in an updated format for more than one reason.please bring it to DVD.
