With his grounding in the ways of the Shoshone, earnest young Cavalry lieutenant Niles Ord (John Ericson) believes he can broker a peaceful surrender from the renegade Black Eagle (H.M. Wynant). However, Ord's bullheaded CO (Edward Platt)─contemptuous of the junior officer's methods, and resentful of Ord's history with his own wife (Lola Albright)─is determined to see the matter end in battle. Toni Gerry co-stars. 80 min. Widescreen (Enhanced); Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital mono.
