Never seen this one until today. It stars the legendary Richard Harris in the role of John Morgan, an English aristocrat that got tired of his boring aristocratic life and went to North America to be free, where he got captured by the Indians and taken to their village as captive.

Not really a W in classic sense and shy of a palpable plot, but offers a interesting insight in the culture, relations and habits of North American Indians. Of course, a dose of more or less sane flavored distortion of actual facts is implied. It's an American movie.

If you look it expecting action and classic W elements you're in for a letdown, but if you observe the way the Indians and their civilization are represented it gets very interesting. Many aspects of their lives are shown, almost every scene contains something interesting on that matter.


7.2/10

It's the first part of a trilogy, as it turns out. Didn't know that but I'll check them out if I get the chance. Richard Harris is in all of them, which implies they're worth at least one look.

The third stars Michael Beck and Harris isn't in it as much if I remember right. Haven't seen it since the mid 80's on HBO. It's the only one not on DVD. Umberto Lenzi used the Sun Ceremony from the first film on a female character in his nasty CANNIBAL FEROX (1981).

This third is supposed to be a Spain-USA-Canada co-production.

I really liked this movie. Amazing widescreen Technicolor cinematography. It isn't anything more than it appers to be that's enough for me.

Is the sequel any good? I doubt...

8/10

It isn't for me. Yeah, the cinematography and the gals are notewsorthy. But the story (which is an elaboration of Dorothy Johnson's short tale which is one of her best and has little in common with the movie) it is full of clichés and melodrama. 5\10

That's what you get, Drink, for being such an annoying Melville fanboy.

A Man Called Horse (1970) - 6/10. First Blu-ray viewing. Richard Harris (Return of A Man Called Horse) plays an English artistocrat captured by a Sioux tribe. Despised at first and treated as a beast-of-burden, Mr. Horse eventually wins the respect of the tribe, becomes accepted as a warrior, and marries the chief's sister. The anthropological aspects of Sioux culture herein displayed are interesting, and there is a certain amount of fun watcing Harris rise in status, but after the (heh) gripping Sun Vow ritual (the centerpiece of the film) the film devolves into tedium. Sub-plots, like the one involving the chief's wife and another brave, go nowhere. The ending trades pathos for bathos. The disc sports an image that is intermitently beautiful, but at times washed-out (some of the second unit stuff--or is it file footage?--doesn't make the grade. I'm sure the problem is with the original elements).

Hahaha, this is a joke, right?
