rickbass69 » Different kind of movie, but an epic movie in the style of the 50's and 60's. Yul Brynner is excellent as the indian chief, lots of action and drama. I wish someone would put it on video or dvd because I would love to add it to my collection along with a lot of other Yul Brynner's movies that nobody seems to have wanted to cash in on. It compares with Taras Bulba and the Ten Commandments
