Native Americans. One telling set of comments pretty much sums up some of the gruesomeness of this tale: When will Ulzana fight?
The answer, Ulzana doesn't want to fight, just kill you.
Having studied Indian warefare from the Eastern Coast to the American West, this movie ranks among the best and is one of Burt Lancaster's
This may be the most underrated western ever made! If not, it sure is close. There are a lot more famous westerns that aren't nearly as good!!
If your idea of a great western is Bonanza, move along. But if you're more the Gunsmoke type, check this movie out!
1.77 aspect, english subtitled, dolby - two channels.
video is good.
Only negatives the subtitle is missing some text in spots, and missing scenes mentioned by others exist.
All in all a darn good western worth investing in, hope longer version comes on the market.
Bought Universal version, 4:3 aspect too.
A European trailer has scenes where Captain Gates gets the Major to assign Lieutenant Garnett to lead the detail to find Ulzana. I haven't found where to get the trailer, but I think it's viewable on utube. Too bad this isn't in any DVD versions that I know of. The UK version was heavily cut due to censoring of scenes where horses considered abused.
There's lots of interesting details that differ from what is in most texts and movies.
The jist of this film is a small raid by a few indians who leave the reservaion and terrorize the surrounding countryside.
The result is that the cavalery partol sent to capture and return the renegades does so at a large cost in men.
The indian side is represented by the indian guide to that patrol. Get the movie and judge for yourself.
Not just another cavalry versus indians shoot-um-up.
