Our Score
This American Civil War-era western brings a fresh perspective to a familiar horse-rustling scenario. Jeff Chandler plays a new veterinarian in town, who discovers that prominent horse trader Lyle Bettger is stealing animals from the Sioux and selling them to the army. Chandler's efforts to help then find him caught between the tribe and the local ranchers, while female lead Faith Domergue looks on. Don't be misled by the title: there's an attempt to rouse the Sioux, but no great uprising.


A gang of rustlers angers the local Sioux tribe by stealing its horses and selling them to a nearby Army outpost - and as the braves gear up for a war, only one man can prevent a massacre. Western adventure, starring Jeff Chandler, Faith Domergue, Lyle Bettger and Peter Whitney.
