Distant Drums

Film, Action and adventure

Time Out says

A reworking of Objective Burma! in Western terms, with Seminoles replacing the Japanese as Cooper's veteran scout leads a motley group through jungle swamplands during an Indian uprising. The characters are fairly basic, but marvellous use is made of the Florida Everglades, and the set pieces (the nocturnal attack on the fort garrisoned by Indians and their renegade gun-runners, Coop's underwater duel with the Seminole chief) are terrific.
