Black Fox tells the story of two "blood" brothers, Alan and Britt Johnson-one a former plantation owner, the other his childhood friend whom he freed from slavery-who, with their families, leave Carolina to settle in Texas in the 1860s in hopes of finding a new life. Alan and Britt Johnson, along with other pioneer families, are homesteading on the West Texas frontier. With the outbreak of the Civil War, word arrives that two Indian tribes, the Comanches and the Kiowas, have joined forces under the leadership of Little Buffalo, whose goal is to drive the white man out of Texas. In a surprise raid, while the men are away making preparations to defend their homes, the Indians attack, taking hostage every woman and child they can find. While not all the settlers agree, it is decided that because he is black, Britt will have the best chance to negotiate with the Indians for the return of their families and he takes off, alone, for a journey deep into hostile Indian territory. His courage ... Written by Echo Bridge Home Entertainment

Did You Know?


Tony Todd and Don S. Davis who both acted together on Stargate SG1 and collectively have over 300 acting credits, have only 2 "Western genre" roles each to their credit. Todd a prequel to "Black Fox" and Davis in an unrelated role. Also of note is that Davis who has a natural Texas drawl, and you would think, would seem a "natural" for westerns, never drew the attention of Casting Agents. See more »

6 December 1999 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Brilliant stuff one of the best 90's westerns even if it was made for t.v, catch it and its sequels next there on the box. Excellent, Christopher Reeves best role ever. May not have perfect directing but better then any big budget trash at the cinemas recently, WILD WILD WEST, The Avengers, The Haunting.
