      Clyde Gilmour Maclean's Magazine Unless you get tired of ducking a volley of missiles ranging from a tomahawk to a big wad of tobacco juice, you may find this one a rather exciting cavalry-versus-lnjuns western, in 3-D that is more effective than usual. Oct 23, 2019 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews It was the biggest grossing Western in 1953 and is considered by many as the best 3-D Western of the 1950s.

      Audience Member Good movie here recommended James Welch, Henderson, Arkansas, September 7, 2023 Rated 3 out of 5 stars 09/07/23 Full Review Deke P Mom & Dad took me to the theatah when this movie came out in 1953. I remember the 3D arrows, & the chewing tobaccy spit at the rattler. Disney 'Zorro' GUY MADISON in it.. & Frank Lovejoy. And there is a big FEATHER RIVER in 'Sacramento Velley' of Northern California where it's 4 main tributaries begin at LAKE OROVILLE, & that's the dam that nearly overflowed a couple of years ago... 2021??? Oh, and a very interesting note from Wikipedia: "The movie is most notable for originating the name of the "Wilhelm scream",[3] a sound effect used in the Star Wars film series,[4] as well as countless other movies including the Indiana Jones franchise,[5] Disney cartoons and The Lord of the Rings film series.[6] In February 2018 it was announced that Star Wars will no longer use the Wilhelm scream.[7][8] Sound designer Ben Burtt named the sound after "Pvt. Wilhelm", a minor character in the film who emits the famous scream after being shot by an arrow (although the recording actually originated in the Gary Cooper film Distant Drums in 1951). When the film screened at the Second World 3-D Expo at Hollywood's Egyptian Theatre in 2006, much of the film-savvy audience broke into applause when Pvt. Wilhelm screamed." Saw it again on The GRIT NETWORK, 4.2021 Rated 5 out of 5 stars 06/29/23 Full Review Audience Member Has a similar premise to 'The Searchers' although precedes that film by several years. The story, style and design are more aligned to the ordinary way to film a western from this period of Hollywood. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member A very good movie the sound effects were awesome . Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review Read all reviews
