Confusing script, poor acting, confused plot, and ambivalent perspective makes this a thoroughly dodgy movie. Super dated, the native american characterizations are particularly hard to take. Wayne has virtually no ability to bring through any of the role's supposed complexity, the abrupt change at the end makes no sense.
Really nice scenery though.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis:
An American Civil War veteran embarks on a journey to rescue his niece from the Comanches.
