Audience Member If you can imagine All That Heaven Allows in John Ford direction with his constant cast and crew, you can imagine Taza. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/17/23 Full Review Audience Member a very good western movie and best of all many beautiful breeds of horses especially the indians. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review bill t Pretty much the only reason to watch this snoozefest (and believe me, I did plenty of snoozing) is to see Rock Hudson play an indian chief. Yes, AN INDIAN CHIEF. But this tale of crossings, double crossings and who did what now? gets monotonous in a hurry. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Ce western n'est pas ce que Douglas Sirk a fait de meilleur... Mais ça se laisse regarder sans trop de difficulté quand même. On peut s'en dispenser. Bof Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/23/23 Full Review Audience Member A nice Western from the Master of Melodramatic Douglas Sirk in the View of the Indians with a great Ruck Hudson as Indian Chiefhood who fight for Peace between the Tribes and in U.S. Uniform Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/16/23 Full Review Read all reviews
