When Brian Shaw, the owner of the Edmonton Oil Kings moved his junior hockey team to Portland, Oregon, he named the team the "Winter Hawks" after this film. In order to save money, the team bought used jerseys from the Chicago Blackhawks, which is why the Portland Winter Hawks continue to have jerseys that are similar to the NHL Blackhawks. See more »
The good cast culled from Hollywood's Poverty Row cannot save this routine oater about an Indian Chief seeking aid from white men when his tribe is afflicted with small-pox. Sadly this would be the screen swan song for character actor Arthur Hunnicutt, who served so well as the side-kick in so many westerns, and notably as Davy Crockett in "The Last Command"(1955). This one is easy to pass on.
