Quotes

Chief Mike: Let the talk begin... not from your tongue but your heart. Many times we have talked with the white chiefs and no two of them talk alike. With my people there is but one chief. And so we wish to speak with the true chief. Are you, then, the true chief?
Maj. Frank Archer: Among my people, the people themselves are chief. I speak for them.

Fast-paced and enjoyable "B" Western
6 April 2003 | by See all my reviews

12 O'Clock High Meets Virginia City in Castle-directed "B" programmer. George Montgomery is adequately tight-lipped as non-nonsense Major taking over failed outpost. Richard Denning gives a marvelously multi-dimensional performance as Stacey Wyatt, as militia leader with a hidden agenda. John Crawford adds an interesting interpretation of the Hugh-Marlowe-type role of reformed reprobate. Martha Hyer provides eye candy and adds a bit of sass to boot. Good, clean, fast, and unchallenging fun.
