Richard Harris reprises his role as John Morgan, known as Horse, in the Irvin Kershner (Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back) directed sequel to A Man Called Horse. Morgan returns to help the Yellow Hands Sioux tribe when they are forced off their sacred ground by government backed trappers. John must devise a plan to regain a stronghold in order to return power to the disconsolate Yellow Hand by taking action against those who have enslaved and murdered members of the tribe. Joining Harris on screen are Gale Sondergaard (Anthony Adverse), Geoffrey Lewis (Bronco Billy) and William Lucking (Erin Brockovich). The Return of a Man Called Horse, photographed by five-time Academy Award nominee for Best Cinematographer Owen Roizman (The French Connection, The Exorcist) features a score by two-time Academy Award nominee Laurence Rosenthal (Becket, Man of La Mancha).
