Synopsis


Sitting Bull
This western offers one of Hollywood's more historically accurate accounts of the Battle of Little Big Horn. The story centers on a major in the cavalry who believes the Indians have the same rights as other Americans. Despite his efforts to stop Custer from embarking on his ill-fated mission, the general carries on. Later the major is court-marshaled for being a traitor and ends up sentenced to die. Fortunately, Sitting Bull sends a petition to the President and pleads for the good major's pardon. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

    Told with a fair perspective for the Indians

    The historical drama comes off a turgid bore. Filmed in CinemaScope it would have been a natural for widescreen televisions, but the picture has been re-formatted to fill the entire screen, thus lopping off a good portion of the sides. The cast includes Indian actors, such as Iron Eyes Cody, as well as non actors, and their story is presented fairly.
