7th Cavalry

Film

Time Out says

One of Lewis' two colour films, a weird and occasionally wonderful little Western focusing on the enmity between white and red man as Scott, accused of deserting Custer out of cowardice during the fiasco of Little Big Horn, sets out to discover the truth of the massacre. Beautifully shot and briskly paced, it's most interesting for a surprising anti-Custer stance, and for its surreal, almost supernatural finale, which sees Custer's horse appearing like a ghost from the wilderness to bring peace between enemies.
