Great film never saw the light of day
20 December 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film was never released theatrically, due to a "Producers" like scam where the investors sold off 300% or more of the shares so it could never make a profit. The director Tom Gries was my instructor in film school and brought it to class one night.

It features a number of real Native American actors like Eddie Little Sky and Steve Shemayne (Little Big Man), but Victoria Racimo is Filipina, although very believable as an Indian in this and other films.

For its time it was a very good attempt at conveying the desolation and poverty of reservation life.
