I actually liked everything up to the battle with the Indians or whatever you want to describe it as - it really bogged down the movie for me. I didn't think the love interest was that bad considering she had an ulterior motive, which is somewhat rare for westerns...but they didn't capitalize on it.

I didn't mind the studio shot night scenes because they look good. The movie is well directed as well - not among Sturges' best but solid.

This would have been much better had there been a large scale attack on the fort instead of the plodding standstill battle. Sure, I know it's not the most original conclusion or climax but the movie would have fared better.

I agree with Groggs when he criticized the script for giving characters traits through somewhat stilted dialog inatead of actually building strong characters.

A very generous 7 because the first hour is a respectably crafted piece of entertainment.
