Editorial Reviews

Tom Benson (Randolph Scott) a Captain in General Custer's famed 7th Cavalry and an aide to the dashing General, is unable to prove that on the eve of the fateful massacre at Little big Horn, he (Benson) had been ordered from the frontier to bring his fiancee (Barbara Hale) to Fort Lincoln. Accused of cowardice, Benson grimly undertakes what he feels is a suicide mission: commanding a burial detail of misfits under Sgt. Bates (J.C. Flippen), returning to the Little Big Horn where the Indian warriors, flushed with victory are certain to massacre the lot. A Corporal Morrison, who has been able to clear Benson, rides out to join Benson's command but is killed. Just when Benson is faced with mutiny from his men as well as with an Indian attack, Morrison's horse breaks through the Indian lines. The Indians, believing the animal is ridden by the ghost of General Custer, leave Benson and his men to complete their assignment in peace.

Glad it was cheap, not worth sending back!

Are they trying to blame a dead man who can't defend himself?
Acute Observer
Acting quality also was fine, for its time, even great.

I ordered this product from Amazon UK -- the video quality is terrible, much worse than a VHS. The picture looks as if it has been dubbed from a poor master. Poor clarity, badly faded colors, and a constant hissing sound in the audio. There's even a warning on the case saying the 'some image quality may have been lost' when the video was mastered.

Columbia Pictures presents "7TH CAVALRY" (1956) (75 mins/Color) (Dolby digitally remastered) --- Starring Randolph Scott, Barbara Hale, Jay C. Flippen, Frank Faylen & Leo Gordon. --- Directed by Joseph H. Lewis and released in April 1, 1951, our story line and film, Returning to Fort Lincoln, Captain Benson learns of Custer's defeat at the Little Big Horn. At the inquiry as Custer's Officers blame Custer for the defeat, Benson tries to defend him. But Benson was suspiciously absent at the time of the battle and is now despised by the troops. So when an order to retrieve the bodies from the battlefield arrives, Benson volunteers for the dangerous mission of returning back into Indian territory --- Although it's nowhere near as good as the oaters Scott did with Budd Boetticher, this one nonetheless still rises above most of the other westerns from Harry Cohn, Columbia Pictures and company was putting out ... It also helps filming it out in the California pine country away from the usual Columbia ranch locations that we've seen many times before --- And Mr. Scott was secure enough in his stardom that he gave good lines and depth to the younger actors in the film.

Under Joseph H. Lewis (Director), Harry Joe Brown (Producer), Peter Packer (Screenwriter), Glendon Swarthout (Short Story Author), Ray Rennahan (Cinematographer), Mischa Bakaleinikoff (Composer (Music Score), Gene Havlick (Editor),George Brooks (Art Director) - - - - the cast includes Randolph Scott (Capt. Tom Benson), Barbara Hale (Martha Kellogg), Jay C. Flippen (Sgt. Bates), Jeanette Nolan (Mrs. Reynolds), Frank Faylen (Krugger), Leo Gordon (Vogel), Denver Pyle (Dixon), Harry Carey, Jr. (Cpl. Morrison), Michael Pate (Capt. Benteen), Donald Curtis (Lt. Bob Fitch), Frank Wilcox (Maj.

After the utterly diasatrous Elstree Hill release, and me being a bit stubborn, I thought I would try this Desert Island films DVD, thinking it couldn't be worse, quality wise. Well dear reader, it isn't worse, but it ain't good. Very washed out colour, and not great sound. It is watchable however, and if I give the Elstree Hill release 1 out of 10 I would give this 6 out of 10. Hope this makes sense. (I still think for the fact it's poor quality that it is too expensive). (Oh and the film is of course very good. Can some company manage a restored/good quality print...please!!) AW (U/K)

I bought & watched this movie mainly because i enjoy the acting of Randolph Scott as a western actor he was one the best but the D.V.D itself the quality & sound is very poor. lot of disortion.
Even though it tells you on the case that some quality has been lost during the transfer process I was disapointed overall.
If by chance a better quality D.V.D was ever re-produced i am sure that western fans would look at paying for a better quality movie.

Curious little western that tells what happened at Fort Lincoln a few days after Little Big Horn massacre (note the Lewisesque circular travelling of the inside of Fort Lincoln as Randolph Scott makes his appearance). Equally amazing is the role given to horses in 7th Cavalry. Recommended to Joseph H. Lewis completists or horsemeat amateurs.

The copy I viewed had great cinematography for its period of production. Acting quality also was fine, for its time, even great.

However, if directing includes such things as stage set, scenery, realism in terms of reproduction of Fort Lincoln, this was an especially poorly directed production.

Snow-capped mountain peaks just simply do not exist in the area of Fort Lincoln. Hilltops, yes, but mountain tops no. Neither are there any of the evergreen forest. Further, the structures now standing, that are rebuilt to be replicas of the original structure, were not of log cabin construction, I could go on and on but to no purpose.

My point is that 7th Cavalry is fine for entertainment but don't regard it as historical. For it definitely is not.so far a departure that I could not discard my disbelief, despite my normal fascination with Randolph Scott as an actor.

Boots & Saddles, on the other hand, is much closer to the truth, at least Libby Custer's truth, than is 7th Cavalry.
