Little Big Man was an actual historical figure. He was a Native American, an Oglala Lakota, who was a fearless and respected warrior who fought under, and was rivals with, Crazy Horse. He also fought at the Battle of Little Big Horn, a battle which is depicted in this film. See more »
Throughout the movie Custer is referred to as "General Custer" and is seen wearing two stars on his uniform collar (indicating the rank of Major General. During the Civil War he was given the rank of Brevet Major General of Volunteers which was a temporary promotion for the duration of the war. At the end of the war he was once again reduced to the rank of Captain in the Regular Army. By the time of the Battle of Little Big Horn in 1876 he had risen to the rank of Lieutenant Colonel and would have been addressed as "Colonel" and would have worn the appropriate insignia for that rank.

I am, beyond a doubt, the last of the old-timers. My name is Jack Crabb. And I am the sole white survivor of the Battle of Little Big Horn, uh, uh, popularly known as Custer's Last Stand.

A movie set along a historical period that was made before it's time. I consider it a western that has not been equalled since it's release. Though some historical characters in this movie are flavored with outlandish license it excels in invoking a range of emotions. From happy, sad and disbelief to a silent resignation that it may have generally touched events closer than most would want to acknowledge.
