One of the worst of the Cavalry genre
19 May 2005 | by cptkeoghSee all my reviews

This supposed piece of western Americana is perhaps the worst ever depiction of the events leading up to the fight at Little Big Horn. Fine, possibly even great actors forced to participate in a film that defies all logic and historical fact. I cannot think of another western that even comes close to its mediocrity. Philip Carey and Joseph Cotton at least know how to ride a horse, while the supposed hero, Darren McGavin looks more like a new recruit rather than a veteran cavalryman. I can understand the director wanting to make a film that shows the mistreatment of the Native Americans, but this film fails to generate any emotion except disgust for the terrible acting. Even the uniforms and equipment are wrong.
