A MAN CALLED HORSE (Theatrical Release USA 1970)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.8|5.0 Starsìììì

A Man Called Horse
reminds us of why Richard Harris is considered one of the best actors of our times. The native American actors and actresses perform very well. The costuming and staging departments outdid themselves in quality. Outstanding direction by Director Elliot Silverstein shows heart and brings to life an exceptionally well-written and well-timed script that illustrates Native American ritual and life in a worthy manner.
