Trivia

At the movie's screening after its completion, producer Willis Kent determined that the film was so badly made as to be unreleasable. Since director J. Frank Glendon had not shown up for the screening and was nowhere to be found, Kent turned to stunt coordinator Yakima Canutt--who was the only person besides Kent to show up for the screening--and asked him to re-shoot the picture. According to Canutt, he re-shot virtually the entire film, but because of contractual technicalities could not receive credit for it. See more »

Rogh finish B western.
18 August 2010 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Nothing distinguished about this series western, which follows the adventures of Montana, raised by the Indians and graduate of the Carlisle Indian School.

The exposition is the best part of the film. We get stock footage of pioneer activity and Indian raids to go with the quite well matched explanatory footage.

Our hero grows up to be the less than gifted actor Montana, who has a feather in his hat so that we'll know he's like Buck Jones in WHITE EAGLE or Charlton Heston in THE SAVAGE.

The depiction of the Indians is occasionally novel and given interesting detail like the prohibition on their carrying guns and the sympathetic farmer allowing them to steal the odd cow.

Technically very rough.
