Trivia

The names of the Sergeants were often used by John Ford in his films. See more »

Goofs

When First Sergeant Libbey shoots six of the ailing horses, he is shown pulling back the slide of his Colt .45 Model 1911 automatic pistol before each shot. When firing an automatic pistol, blowback/recoil pushes back the slide, ejecting the spent cartridge, then moving a live round from the magazine into the firing chamber and re-cocking the hammer after each shot. (That's why they're called "automatics".) Pulling back the slide after each shot will eject the fresh round out of the pistol and load the next live round, leaving every other live round on the ground. Not only does this defeat the purpose of an automatic pistol, but since the Model 1911 has a maximum capacity of eight rounds, the highest number of shots he could have fired would have been four.

Excellently produced and directed.
5 June 2002 | by (Los Angeles, California) – See all my reviews

This is the first film I have seen that accurately depicts the U.S. Army Horse Cavalry during this time period.

My father was a trooper in the cavalry during this time period, as an orderly to General Patton (then colonel), another cavalry man.

My father's stories reflected this closeness of a trooper and his horse.

The film was also accurate in uniforms, saddles, and tack, along with the handling of the horses.

Don Johnson's roll of the Sergeant was remarkable, one of his best performances.

I would recommend this film to anyone interested in a missed part of our history, and to anyone just wanting to see a very good movie.
