From my knowledge Disney had minimal input in the film & you can see that. Sal Mineo who played the Young Indian lead was fantastic & gave a great performance.
For 1958 it was ahead of its time by challenging that Custer was not the hero he was cracked up to be.
It's a likeable film that is interesting to watch & breath of fresh air to see Indians portrayed much more properly.
I think this is the best movie I have ever seen and I will try to get a copy of it.
Anyone who loves horses will thoroughly enjoy this movie. It should be classified as a classic! I believe I saw it on a Walt Disney Sunday Night Special.
This is a must see movie for horse lovers and children.
