Goofs

A scene at the fort fixes on the Stars and Stripes, shown with eight rows and five columns of stars or a total of 40 stars. There never has been a 40-star US flag. The flag star count jumped from 38 to 43 on July 4, 1890 four years after Geronimo's surrender. Nor could the flag have been an unofficial US flag because the 40th and 41st states, North and South Dakota, respectively, did not join the union until November 2, 1889. See more »

The history of the One Who Yawns!!
9 December 2000 | by ad2020See all my reviews

I can say I admire this movie for the vision of the myth of "Geronimo" (as a relation ((not a relative!!!)) I can't really see myself calling him Geronimo) that it delivers, which is a lot better than say it's Hollywood counterpart "Geronimo:An American Legend". It delivers more of the brutality the Apache had to put up w/ from the Mexicans and the White Eyes.As w/ all these movies, no history and lots of action and gut-wrenching. There's not much more I can say except check it out! Oh yeah, August Schellenberg is one of the coolest Indin's on film, not to mention he looks like a long-haired version of my dad! An 8.5!
