Jeff Chandler is cast against type (and does a terrific job) in this
big-budget western as the commander of a cavalry fort in the West
during the Civil War who hates both Indians and Southerners with equal
passion. With his command stripped to the minimum due to the Union's
need for troops to fight the Civil War back east, Chandler is forced to
accept a unit of Confederate prisoners who have volunteered to fight
Indians under Union command as an alternative to rotting in POW camps.
Chandler's all-consuming hatred and racism result in his killing the
son of the local Indian chief, which causes the Indians to go on a
rampage against the whites in the area, culminating in a massive attack
against the fort itself. This is a dark, gritty and, considering the
time in which it was made, brutally graphic and violent western that
explores and exposes issues--racism, sexual tension, even a hint of
mental illness--seldom, if ever, touched upon by westerns up to that
time. The supporting performances by Joseph Cotten, Linda Darnell and
especially the great--and always underrated--Arthur Hunnicutt are
top-notch, but this really belongs to Chandler, and he does a
tremendous job, as good as (and in some ways better than) what is
usually considered to be his finest performance, that of Indian chief
Cochise in "Broken Arrow" of a few years later. Chandler was never a
particularly expressive or emotional actor--when he tried to be, the
results sounded more like a lecture (his speech at the end of "Pillars
of the Sky" is a case in point)--but his coldness works to his
advantage here, which makes his bursts of anger and hatred all the more
chilling. This is an intelligent and thoughtful yet also rousing and
action-filled western, hardly your run-of-the-mill cavalry-vs.-Indians
tale. I don't think this would be the kind of western John Ford would
have made, and it's probably the better for it. Don't miss it.
