A Bit of Miscasting
16 June 2011 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

Two rather effete eastern writers (Weston & Klemperer) arrive in Dodge looking for story material and not much caring how they get it. When Pawnee burial ground is defiled, Little Hawk's band jumps reservation to get revenge. Now the marshal's mixed up with cavalry, Indians, and New York writers.

Good plot, but its effectiveness is undercut by Weston, in particular, whose buffoonish character is both too obvious and unconvincing for an adventurous writer. Nonetheless, there's good attention to detail, especially the burned out homestead; plus, a strong performance from Newton as the angry major. The ending again confirms a series staple—namely, that character counts. Arness was so good at putting that point across in subtle fashion.

(In passing—I wish the script had explained why the Pawnee mount their dead on raised platforms, exposed to the elements. I expect it would be an interesting explanation.)
