In his time this movie is outstanding. One can see many features of a Wild West movie becoming standard after this one.
Naturally this movie reflects also in which environment it was made. But if we would have to discuss ideology of this time we would have to add also the exceptional relationship of whites with natives! In the USA of this time there would have been problems to show this kind of movie! Luis Trenker himself had many problems with the Nazi regime. To try to interpret a fascistic overlay seems crude to me. The filmmaker, Southern Tyrol was officially Italian since 1919, had to take part in the national film industry too, as in the beginning of every good director of his time and today.
The movie should be seen as a outer view of the the possibilities and risks of living The American Dream! For me, anything less than 10 out of 10 is not enough for this masterpiece of 1936.
