Another one of those "if only" movies
23 June 2011 | by jcook56050See all my reviews

I'm going to make a suggestion here. When you watch this movie for the second time, turn down the volume completely. Make up your own wonderful scripting and music. Somehow, the scenes, acting, and storyline make complete sense and the movie becomes a wonderful exploration of images from a first rate motion picture that might have been. There are moments of incredible color and western imagery that are delightful to see, even if they fall far short of being the reality of the era depicted. Sorta reminded me of a nice western novel you picked up in a shop while in the airport. There's Alex Cord and Lana Wood in a classic lover's pose on the front cover with Iron Eyes Cody looking on in the background. Perfect Native Americans, who of course, are not native at all. This motion picture had everything it needed to be a wonderfully engaging drama with spectacular filming and broad scope. Yet, somehow during its production, it simply became a good children's tale. So, the question here is; how do you manage to get the money and all these industry tools, Ben Johnson, Jack Elam, and all those great actors, and turn a wonderful movie into this? I don't know. But, it saddens me.
