Storyline

White Eagle is the son of a massacred army officer, who has been raised by an Indian tribe and believes himself to be the son of the tribal chief.

Buck rides the same trail again, but takes longer this time.
23 November 2005 | by horn-5See all my reviews

This 1941 Buck Jones serial was a remake of Jones' 1932 feature western of the same title. It was the 13th Columbia serial.

The plot is the same as Fred Myton's 1932 original-feature story, expanded from 62 minutes to 290 minutes, wherein White Eagle (Buck Jones)is the son of a massacred army officer, who has been raised by an Indian tribe and believes himself to be the son of the tribal chief. White Eagle is working to get a peace treaty signed between the Indians and the white settlers, but "Dandy" Darnell (James Craven), in one of the "greatest" over-the-top, scenery-chewing performances even lensed, has about a dozen different reasons for the treaty not to be signed, and keeps dispatching a small army of henchmen to keep relations between the Indians and the settlers stirred to a boiling point for most of the fifteen chapters.
