Being born in 1951, I grew up in the day of the Western movie. I remember both Ben Johnson and Jack Elam in their prime and this movie was merely a vehicle for the two of these gentlemen to pick up some money in their later years. We've all seen this sort of thing before. The score is awful and over the top, the story line is weak, the editing is slow and rough, the characters are either forgetful or downright stupid, the dialog is pathetic and the portrayal of the Native Americans embarrassing. It hurt me to see Iron Eyes Cody reduced to this trash. My dad, who is 87 at the time of this writing, watched this with me and we both were very tired of it well before it was over. Fact is, my dad ended up leaving the room with twenty minutes left. I finished it only to see the credits. It is not pleasant for me to write such a comment for a movie for I would much rather be kind but I simply felt compelled to do so in this instance to save others from wasting their time on this mess.
