Every once in a while, DeMille and his small army of writers stumble upon an actual historical fact. Bill Cody did fight to the death with an Indian chief named Yellow Hand. George Custer and James Butler Hickok did both buy the farm in the summer of 1876. (Custer's Last Stand is handled imaginatively, if cheaply, as a vision narrated by a wandering Cheyenne warrior--none other than C.B.'s son-in-law Anthony Quinn in one of his earliest screen appearances.) Jack McCall (veteran weasel Porter Hall) did find himself in Deadwood, South Dakota, at the same time Wild Bill was drawing aces and eights in a poker game ... though McCall was not necessarily affiliated with DeMille's favourite villain, Charles Bickford, in the business of running guns to the Indians. --Richard T. Jameson
Good old fashioned movie entertainment. Gary Cooper and Jean Arthur. Perfection.Published 2 months ago by Mrs. Gillian E. Marriott
Gary Cooper was, at one time, on a par with John Wayne, and he was a 'cowboy' in the strictest sense of the word. An excellent cast and director (De Mille). Good print.Published 11 months ago by kenneth e. allen.

This film begins well, with Gary C in great form and Jean Arthur not far behind plus a very capable supporting cast but the last third fizzles down a little abruptly. Read morePublished on 17 Dec. 2010 by Movie Fan from Portugal
