Run of the Arrow ★★ Hot Lead 1956

Rather than surrender to the North at the end of the Civil War, an ex-Confederate soldier (Steiger) joins the Sioux nation, engaged in war against the white man. Steiger's Irish brogue is weird and distracting, and the intriguing premise fails to satisfy, but the cast is competent and interesting. 85m/C VHS .

Wynant, Neyle Morrow, Frank De Kova, Frank Baker; D: Samuel Fuller; W: Samuel Fuller; C: Joseph Biroc; M: Victor Young, Max Steiner; V: Angie Dickinson.
