Winterhawk ★★ 1976 (PG)

A Black-foot Indian seeks smallpox serum from a nearby trapper camp for his stricken tribe. When he's attacked for his efforts, he takes revenge by kidnapping two of the settlement's children. Exceptional cinematography of the breathtaking scenery can't hide the cliched, melodramatic story and waste of a fine cast. This was Hunnicutt's last screen appearance. 98m/C VHS .
