Format: DVD
"They Died With Their Boots On" is a classic. It is has an energy all it own and it gallops unapologetically to its inevitable final. Errol Flynn gives one of his finest performances as General Custer and Olivia de Havilland is irresistible in the part of Libby Custer.

The history portrayed in "They Died With Their Boots On" might be pure Hollywood hokum but it is still the best film ever made on this subject.

In reality General Armstrong Custer was not a liked man. In fact he was hated by his troops and despised in Washington. During his years on the Indian plains Custer's soldiers suffered terribly under his despotic and inconsistent command. Custer made enemies wherever he went. The final battle at the Little Bighorn and eventual defeat of Custer was primarily because of poor military decisions and circumstantial mistakes.

General "Longhair" Custer was no friend of the victimised Indians having been involved in cold-blooded massacres that included the wholesale killing of their defenceless women and children. The latest biography of Custer paints the man as someone verging on the Psychotic. General George Armstrong Custer was anything but a hero.

This would not do for a Hollywood film. A Hollywood film made and released during Americas involvement in World War II. America needed heroes and Custer was one of them.

That said it is very intelligent script and has some really excellent dialogue. At one point Custer offers a way out of the final battle to his comrade, an Englishman serving with the 7th Cavalry, by giving him a letter to deliver.

BUTLER: Why are you asking me to go back with it?

CUSTER: Well for one thing you're an Englishman, not an American.

BUTLER: Not an American?

General Custer (a fine looking Errol Flynn) is portrayed as a rogue at West Point (the highest number of demerits) yet he is acknowledged as a very fine horseman and swordsman (useful attributes in the US army at that time; just before the outbreak of the American civil war. There is a poignant scene when the cadet gentlemen of The South decline to swear allegiance to the Union and are dismissed with honour (obviously to participate in the carnage to come). Custer goes on to portray exceptional courage (in leading the charges of the Michigan battalions - three times), on the strength of an accidental promotion. The down-side takes hold with the end of the war and his being removed from the `active list'. He is given a life-line when posted to the Dakotas to honour a treaty with Crazy Horse (played with quiet dignity by Anthony Quinn). As Warner Brothers did so well (irrespective of historical accuracy - as was the case with The Charge of the Light Brigade, in India, rather than the Crimea!), the climax was at the battle of the Little Big Horn. The various charges are stunning. The high cameras capture the Indians' free-flowing tactics, to their deadly effect. The end, we all know about.

The story of General George Armstrong Custer and his famous last stand at the Battle of Little Big Horn,stars Errol Flynn,and is I tend to feel a rather glorified version of the actual historical facts ,in saying that it is streets ahead of its more recent made rival Custer of the west with Robert Shaw ,and is a must for Errol Flynn fans .It is worth saying that Flynn starred in The Charge of the Light Brigade and while it again was ficitionalised it is in the sense of its entertainment value a superiour film the later version of the same subject ,Watch and enjoy .
