Opening credits prologue: During the Civil War, southern sympathizers made desperate efforts to aid the confederacy by inciting indian uprisings against defenseless towns along the western frontier.
The objective was to force large withdrawals of northern troops from the main battlefronts, leaving them more vulnerable to southern attack.
This is the story of one such attempt that took place in Dakota Territory in the year 1864. See more »
So-so film with interesting cast
This color western from the 1950's is most notable for a rare, non-Lone Ranger appearance by Clayton Moore (unbilled) and Jay Silverheels. The story is engaging but most of the cast seems detached from their performances.
Jay Silverheels stands out in a great role as the Native-American leader. Gary Merrill does the best with the script given him. the action scenes are well-staged and help move the average script along.The storyline is a familiar one, but the top-notch production value makes this one worth checking out This is not a great western, but there are worse ways to kill an hour of your free time.
