Hawkins and the other Rangers are surrounded by Indians. He kills the 2 Indians rolling rocks, throwing his empty pistol at one. As he descends the other side, he mounts a bareback horse, riding off shooting a pistol that shouldn't be there as he rides away. See more »

I saw it 5 times when I was 12. At 72 I still think it great.
This to me is a magical western of the straightforward "goodies in white hats, baddies in black" genre. It has style, humour and excitement and should be compulsory viewing for every 12 year old and above.
