A Man Called Horse
Western • R • 1970 • 1 hr 54 min
I really don’t remember much except the gory Sioux induction ceremony. Richard Harris should have led more films.
Amazing how such a classic film & it's 2 good sequels has fallen way down in2 the deep well of movie obscurity, at least here in the UK!
I haven't seen this but the amount of redface seems like the tip of the problematic iceberg.
I had to watch this in class in high school, so it was not the best representation. Small screen, talkative neighbours, split over two days.
Classic. Very good film.
In 1825, English peer Lord John Morgan is cast adrift in the American West. Captured by Sioux Indians, Morgan is at first targeted for quick extinction, but the tribesmen sense that he is worthy of survival. He eventually passes the many necessary tests that will permit him to become a member of the tribe.
Lord John Morgan has returned to civilized life in England, but finds he has nothing but disdain for that life. Yearning to embrace the simplicity of the American West-and the Yellow Hands Sioux tribe he left behind, Morgan returns to the tribe's land only to discover that they've been decimated by ruthless, government-backed fur traders. Led by Horse, they fight to repossess their land.
Shunka Wakan, formerly Lord John, helps his Dakota son defend their tribe against gold rushers.
