Description

Storyline

Silver has been found on comanche territory and the government accomplished a peaceful agreement with the indians. When James ‘Jim’ Bowie comes into the scene he finds the white settlers living near by planning to attack the indians although they know about that agreement and the beautiful Katie seems to play a leading role in this intrigue.

Maureen O`Hara and Jim Bowie and his famous knife.

This film has got quite a few things going for it, first Maureen O´Hara looking her best, the fact that it shows the native Americans as being good people and defending their interests and being absolutely right. The most interesting aspect that I found is the character of Jim Bowie and his famous knife.We see the knife many times, with the details described and we also see how the knife is made. The guns that people carry are also different from your average western, they look older and they carry them in front under their belts. Bowie for example carries his knife in a holster where normally you would put your gun. The colors and scenery are outstanding, and the fact that you see O´Hara punching guys will sure delight the feminists.
Worth watching for O’Hara and Geer.
 
Silver has been discovered on Comanche lands. The U.S. government has reached a deal with the Comanches for mining of the land, but it seems that greedy locals want to make sure that they’re not made aware of any agreement. The legendary James Bowie (Macdonald Carey) arrives on the scene, realizing that he’s got his work cut out for him in trying to prevent hostilities from flaring. Among the characters that he meets are genial politician Dan’l Seeger (Will Geer) and the incredibly feisty local businesswoman Katie Howard (Maureen O’Hara).

Overall, this is a reasonably absorbing if also routine Western. It is beautifully shot, in colour, by Maury Gertsman. It treats its Indian characters with a modicum of respect, although it does take one out of the action seeing that Rick Vallin, playing Pakanah, is clearly white. A fairly short running time (76 minutes) and adequate direction (by George Sherman) help to make this pass the time agreeably. Certainly the big action finale is rousing enough.
