Vance's former girlfriend (Rhonda Fleming) is also living in the territories with her new hubby (John Ridgeley) . All three converge when Indians assault a llttle town . They lived hard ... they fought hard ... they loved hard ... and they died hard !
Good will and integrity characterize the US soldiers from both sides : Condederacy and Union . Well produced by two notorious producers : William H Pine and William C Thomas , this was their most expensive production to date, mainly because of its cast of higher-paid stars. In the movie appears some known Indian chiefs , usually played by real Indian actors , such as Geronimo performed by John War Eagle , Cochise interpreted by Chief Yowlachie , Iron Eyes Cody plays Mangas Coloradas and Victorio is acted by Charles Brunner . The future President USA gives a passable acting as the brave Confederate hero . Reagan played all kinds of genres such as : The killers , Hellcats of the Navy , This is the Army , Desperate journey, The winning team , It's a great feeling . And Westerns such as : Tenesse's partner , Cattle Queen of Montana , Santa Fe trail . His greatest hits were : Santa Fe trail , Dark victory and King's row . Gorgeous Rhonda Fleming provides a lively performance , she played various Westerns as a stubborn woman , such as : A brothel's owner in ¨Tenesse's partner¨ , a póker player in ¨Gunfight at O.K. Corral¨ , an adventurer in ¨Pony Express¨ and as secondary in Abilene Town ; she had important roles in The Eagle and the Hawk , The Redhead and the Cowboy , Those Redheads from Seattle , Gun Glory , Bullwhip , Alias Jesse James and Backtrack .
Decent support cast such as : Bill Williams Noah Beery Jr ,Peter Hansen ,Hugh Beaumont ,Lloyd Corrigan and flm debut of Burt Mustin.
