Trivia

Not willing to cater to Pierre Brice's dead serious take on the material, Stewart Granger played his part with an outright tongue-in-cheek attitude. See more »

Goofs

The film depicted a Shoshone encampment in which a totem pole was prominently displayed amongst the tee-pees. The Shoshone, nomadic in nature, did not have totem poles as part of their tribal culture. The totem pole was found only in cultures of the Indigenous peoples of the Pacific Northwest Coast of North America (Washington State and British Columbia, Canada). See more »

A Merry-Go-'Round
24 January 2018 | by islandluresSee all my reviews

Yup..." A Merry-Go-'Round". That is what this film should have been titled because that was all the story of this picture did. 'Round and 'round and 'round it went. I stopped watching it a little after halfway into the film I was afraid it would never end. One of the WORST films I've ever seen. The story line was a collection of almost every Western movie ever shown. Except for the horses, the acting of all the Casts were pathetic, to say the least. A total waste of my money and my time.
