Trivia

It is reported that Sitting Bull made a small fortune on his participation at the Wild West Show, earning about $50 a week (equal to $1,364 in 2018) for the four months he joined the tour. He would also negotiate prices for autographs and pictures with him. Coming from a prominent Lakota family (his father was a wealthy leader), those skills came in naturally for him; he was also a philanthropist of sorts, giving away his earnings for his people. The movie nods to those events, first when Sitting Bull makes a deal with Caroline Weldon for his portrait, and then when he sends her into town to get supplies for his people, with the money she paid him.

Not Historical Accurate
2 September 2018 | by jboorn-82859See all my reviews

Although the movie was pleasing to watch it lacked accuracy in that the main characters were not portrayed as the correct age. The real persons would have been 10 to 15 years older. Also no create was given to the book from which this was taken. Book by the same name by author Eileen Pollack - 2002. Also, the facts of Mrs Weldon have been significantly changed from the information as related in the book.
