A surprisingly mediocre film, only interesting when when it is most blatant in its rewriting of history. It fails even as a vehicle for Flynn & de Havilland, who are constantly pushed aside by a ramshackle plot.
An absolutely fascinating yet, thankfully, still entertaining Flynn/de Havilland western. It is peculiar in a few ways: Reagan plays Custer as Wingman; a year after this, Flynn plays Custer; and the film has an (shockingly today) ambivalence towards slavery. John Brown's portrayal as misguided religious zealot / domestic terrorist made the experience curiouser and curiouser. A testament to historical perspective.
