Audience Reviews for Seminole
Better than average drama with a decidedly pro Indian slant was one of the many films Rock cranked out on his way up. He gives a good performance, one of his better early ones, as the resolute soldier who is on trial for his life. The cast is full of familiar faces most of whom were also just starting out and would go on to great fame like Lee Marvin, in good guy mode here, and Russell Johnson. Richard Carlson is the sore spot in the picture, he starts out okay but ends up chewing the scenery in an over the top performance. Barbara Hale was never particularly well served by films having much more success on TV as Della Street on Perry Mason nor is she very well used here but she looks probably the best she ever did on screen beautifully shot in Technicolor and with one of the greatest character names ever, Revere Muldoon. Not really a western, not even set in the west but Florida this is an enjoyable picture especially for military history buffs.More
