A generally enjoyable Western
26 June 2002 | by morrisonhimselfSee all my reviews

All them Yankee writers in Hollywood usually manage to make at least one stupid mistake per script when they try to depict Southerners.

When the Noah Beery character says to his commanding officer, played by Ronald Reagan, "Y'all gonna get us killed," it didn't quite ruin the movie -- "y'all" is a plural, and no real Southerner has ever said "y'all" to one person -- but did detract.

The cast is quite good -- Rhonda Fleming seems almost the reason Technicolor was invented; Ronald Reagan made a great cowboy or, in this case, cavalry officer -- the story is intriguing; the battle scene near the end begins with a spine-tingling charge that, every time I see it, literally sends chills down my spine.

Overall, the film is enjoyable, well worth watching.
