Budd Boetticher is one of those directors, among many (Gerd Oswald, Hugo Fregonese, Edgar G. Ulmer), whom Hollywood never truly appreciated. Despite his comparative neglect, Boetticher produced some wonderful work, notably the Westerns he made for Ranown with Randolph Scott. "Seminole" stars some of Boetticher's friends and, as a result, is beautifully acted. Richard Carlson creates an effective military racist, while Anthony Quinn delivers one of his quietly stated performances to give a dignity and gravitas to the Seminole leader. The direction is taut, meaningful, the narrative set out with a welcome economy. The problem is the script, which lacks concentration and concision. Nonethelss, an enjoyable experience and a DVD well worth adding to one's Boetticher collection.
