Not good, not bad, but very "kitsch"
29 April 2018 | by See all my reviews

The heroin is an attractive, a little whiney socialite , wearing elegant dresses, and the the great chief is a tall, handsome, muscular and still young lonesome hero, They are far from the real characters : Mrs Weldon was a middle aged fearless activist , and Sitting Bull a broken , aged, former great chief. Frankly, the approach of this story is not credible, even if the actors do their best for Bright colors, wonderful lanscapes ,crisp costumes (a real fashion show) In conclusion a grade-B movie from the fifties : just entertaining I prefer to watch again the harsh and realistic movie "Bury my heart at wonded knee"
