An exciting and sympathetic look at the life of Chief Crazy Horse and the Indian nations. Living out the prophecy that a great warrior would rise and unite the tribes, only to be killed by a fellow Indian, Crazy Horse (nobly portrayed by Mature) is killed by a half-caste renegade
(Danton, also a standout) after the leader has made peace with the soldiers under Millican's command. Ball, ably portraying Mature's wife, makes her first return appearance on film after an illness resulted in her leg being amputated. Weaver is cast in a small role as Major Carlisle.
