Audience Member Classic western drama at its finest. Perfect pacing, realistic action, convincing performances. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review ashley h This film has got quite few things going for it, first Maureen O´Hara looking her best, 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 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 fact that you see O´Hara punching guys will sure delight the feminists. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Read all reviews
