This should have been a great film, unfortunately, the picture and sound quality on this Elstree Hill dvd is terrible. Absolutely shocking! I could only watch 10 minutes before I ejected the disc. Save your money. I found a great copy of this movie in the UK. Google: [...] You will get a good watchable copy from this company.
I have previously reviewed this movie on the Elstree Hill Label and my comments still stand. However, there is a German version of this film which is outstanding if anyone is still looking for a good copy of this. The German movie is: "Die 7. Kavallerie" and available through Amazon uk or Amazon Germany. It does come in at around £9.45, but the quality is excellent! I hope this helps you guys get a good copy.

If you want to waste your money on what i can only say is a very bad bootleg copy, buy this dvd. Awefull picture quality, substandard audio quality. Amazon really should vet all dvds they sell as they will loose customers if they keep letting these films through the system.

If I had known this was an Elstree Hill film....This is sub standard 3rd generation video from a bad 16 mm print (or it seems like it). How can they release such poor quality of a film frequently on TV that is much better than this? So disapointing.

If there was a rating lower than 1 I would rate it lower. Unfortunately I received this dvd by mail yesterday (In Australia) If I had purchased it here in Target or K Mart I would take it back immediately. It is disgusting to think a dvd can be sold in this state. The transfer (obviously from VHS or worse) is shocking. The picture goes in and out of colour, if you can call it that in most scenes. The sound changes volume all the way through, it's so low.

It only proves to me I will NEVER purchase another dvd from Elstree Hill Entertainment and[...] Elstree should be ashamed to have their name after such a famous British Studio. 7th Cavalry is something I wanted to add to my western collection but the only place this will be added is the garbage bin. Even at the low price of 2.99 it was an absolute waste of money. I hope the other 5 dvds I purchased at the time are in better shape. Thank God for FREE POSTAGE from Amazon at the moment as I would hate to think I also had to pay postage on this.

I wonder what Amazon do with the reviews people place on here. It would be nice to think they get back to the distributors of the dvd but I think that highly unlikely as they continue to release product from them. If I was a member of the cast or crew of this film (fortunately they must be all dead). I would hate to see what I worked on back in the 1950s to be released for viewers who are collectors (or not) what a dsigusting print they actually have to pay money for.

i bought this for my 6, 9, and 11 year old boys, but the quality was so poor both in sound and picture at points that it often resembled someone taking a video camera into a cinema, amazon shouldn't stock this

Like other reviewers, had I known this was an Elstree release I wouldn't have bothered. Amazon should state the label on DVDs and CDs so the buyer knows what he is in for up front. A pity, because although not up to the standard of Scott's Ranown westerns, it is still a cut above the average second feature western and deserves better than this shoddy treatment.

I am a fan of the Bruce Boetticher / Randloph Scott Films and have seen 7th Cavalry on TV and liked the film. The quality of this DVD is awful and I would not have purchased the DVD if I had been aware of that.

Format: DVD
Not much to add really regarding the quality of this DVD. It has quite rightly been slaughtered. But because it is a western and I am a masochist for the cause, I watched it anyway. It has been a good many years since I last watched "7th Cavalry" on TV, so it was nice to have the opportunity to reappraise it. My experience in watching creaky old videos stood me in good stead to cope with the early dawn of the stone age picture quality. A rather retro experience that took me back to watching the good old black and white TV in the sixties. This experience enabled me to watch it to the end of its 75 minute running time.

The film itself stars Randolph Scott as a Cavalry Officer who returns to his old seventh cavalry post with his new bride, only to discover that his friend and commanding officer George Armstrong Custer and many of his men have been annihilated by the Sioux indians at the Battle of Little Big Horn. Scott faces the accusation of cowardice from fellow officers and is given all the dirty jobs. He also happens to be the only officer to defend the actions of General Custer, who is widely criticised by others for his tactics before the full facts are apparent. None of this puts Scott very high in the popularity stakes. With this in mind he volunteers to lead a small detachment of men on a perilous journey back into hostile territory to recover the bodies of Custer and his men.

The director of the film Joseph H Lewis made a few interesting films. Most notably "Gun Crazy"(49) and the excellent western "The Halliday Brand"(57), which starred an ageing Ward Bond. Like the legendary director Ed Wood he also worked with Bela Lugosi. The film is unusual in following events that take place shortly after the battle.
