Audience Reviews for The Indian Fighter
Unexceptional western but Kirk is good as is Walter Matthau in an unusual role for him. A bit of trivia the actress playing the young mother, Diana Douglas, is Kirk's ex-wife and Michael's mother.
Entertaining but stale Western that could have done a much better job. Some good action scenes make this film worth the view. Douglas seems miscasted in this role for some reason.
Despite its worthy efforts to address issues of racism and environmentalism, all I took from this film is that Kirk Douglas' character is a serial rapist.
