One of the best Cheyenne Warrior tales of all time, for me.
9 July 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have recently 7/08 finally gotten my very own copy VHS OF GREYEAGLE. It is the most beautiful Indian movie I have ever seen, even with its imperfections of the times, my favorite actor Alex Cord, should have been given top billing on this one..beautiful music, scenery, loving story of respect for the elders, especially our American Indian ancestors.. My favorite movie of all time..It's 31 years old..I still watch it all the time to feel good about humanity...Threw out the movie, it also has it's quick humor if one pays attention..Great.The music in this movie is so beautiful, and impacts the acting of the characters that,it all blends so well..Maybe some day, there will be a remake of Greyeagle, for all western fans, but for me only Alex Cord, as the lead actor will do.
