Storyline

John Vickers finally tracks down one of the three men who killed his true love. Before he dies, the miscreant admits that his accomplices joined the cavalry. Vickers, a former officer himself, does likewise, after saving pretty Molly Quade from rowdy Sergeant O'Hara, who sets out to harass the new recruit. After incidents during a battle with the Sioux, Vickers is pretty sure O'Hara is one of his men. But can he reconcile his desire for vengeance with loyalty to the Army?

outstanding movie very realistic for the period
21 April 2001 | by ltcalexanderSee all my reviews

Really good movie for the period. Does not show anti native American bias but a realistic view of the period. Fine acting by O'Brien and Tucker makes this movie a better one. Filmed on the location of the actual fights adds to the realism.
