A Dramatization of a Crucial Encounter in the Indian Wars
25 January 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this episode when I was in 7th or 8th grade. Unfortunately I haven't seen it since. As I recall, though, based on my research and readings long after the viewing (it's memory prompted me in later life to learn more about the event), it is also fairly close to the historical Fetterman Massacre in 1866. Fuller did an outstanding job of bringing the impetuous, fire-breathing and ultimately doomed by his own idiocy character of Capt. William J. Fetterman to life. Also, the supporting cast - particularly Richard Egan and Carrol O'Conner - did an outstanding job with the characters of the weak-back-boned Col. Carrington and Captain Ten Eyck respectively.

It's a real pity that this event at the very beginning of the Plains Indian Wars has not been more thoroughly examined and dramatized to the extent that the Battle of Little Bighorn and General Custer has, especially as Custer and Fetterman shared some of the same traits.

I wonder if anybody out there who might read this would know if this episode is available on DVD?
