I am not a historian, but I am smart enough to know that Seminole wars occurred in Florida - I guess South Florida - or at worst a bit in Oklahoma, but certainly not so far west...Why not Apache warriors in Connecticut? But all this contributes to Sam Katzman's productions charm, so far from the true events which they are supposed to tell about in the most accurate way. But after all, who cares? No folks, don't be disturbed by all those historical mistakes. That little western remains a very appreciable time waster. Routine but a feature that the movie buffs will be glad to see. Earl Bellamy worked most of his career for the TV industry.
If you search for authentic films about Seminole wars, at least far more accurate then this one, try instead Raoul Walsh's DISTANT DRUMS or Budd Boetticher's SEMINOLE. I have ween some other grade B westerns in black and white about Seminoles but I don't remind which ones.
