    Sitting Blue is a decent film. It is about Chief Sitting Bull of the Sioux tribe is forced by the Indian-hating General Custer to react with violence. Dale Robertson and Mary Murphy give good performances. The screenplay is a little slow in places. Sidney Salkow did an alright job directing this movie. I liked this motion picture because of the adventure.

    Slow Moving, Methodical, Sweeping Theatrical Piece With Very Little 'Wow' Factor...The Caked-Up In Make-Up Of Actors Pretending To Injuns Didn't Help Much Either..Pity It Is Based On A True Story Tho, Coulda Been Done Much Better.

    170118: I found this film only so so but it features a nasty villain in Kathy Howell (Mary Murphy). Ok, perhaps she's not a villain but she sure is cruel if you don't meet her expectations. Seriously, this is basically the story of Major, ah, Captain Bob Parish (Dale Robertson), one of Howell's victims. Ok, sorry. Parish believes he can broker peace between the First Nations, led by Sitting Bull, and the United States. The film surrounds a fictitious account of Custer's Last Stand and provides additional material before and after the massacre. Sitting Bull entertains but I can't speak to any stand out material...other than my dislike of the gold-digging, self-centered Howell. At least Wentworth (William Hopper) eventually escapes her.

    Less than impressive filming, this movie is credited by film historians with having it right about the actual battle of the Little Big Horn. Dale Robertson leads as a peacemaking calveryman respected by Sitting Bull and demoted by no less than Gen. Armstrong Custer himself. This film appears as more of a television grade production than anything approaching high grade quality. The usual scenes of calvary orders, fort life, indians speaking decent english... yet the film was interesting and well enough acted. Original Release Date: Oct 2, 1954 Acclaimed as one of the few accurate accounts of the battle of Little Big Horn, this historical western follows a cavalry major (Dale Robertson) who believes the Indians should receive just testament, and tries - to no avail - to prevent Gen. Custer from riding into slaughter. Cast J. Carrol Naish Bill Hopper Douglas Kennedy John Litel Mary Murphy Dale Robertston (lead actor) Crew Screenplay: Jack De Witt Story by: Jack De Witt Producer: W.R.

    An OK Movie, what was best about it was, the battle between Custer and Sitting Bull, arrows were bouncing off the Calvary, Calvary Men falling dead then getting up, loaded with comical mistrakes, This was one of 3 Movies on a disc, Just OK
