Retitled video version of The Legend Of Custer (1968)
6 October 2009 | by (The Lonesome Prairie) – See all my reviews

A feature film cobbled together from episodes of the short lived "Custer" television series, Crazy Horse And Custer: The Untold Story looks fantastic with great cinematography and excellent locations.

It's historically bankrupt (not just inaccurate) plot involves Custer and Crazy Horse being captured by a tribe of Blackfoot and being forced to work together to escape and survive a dangerous trek back to civilization.

Wayne Maunder looks like Custer but this doesn't capture any of the arrogance or the amorality of the man. Here he's a hard driving but just and wise.

This isn't too bad but I would definitely recommend watching Custer Of The West for a better (though also historically inaccurate) viewing experience.
