THE INDIAN FIGHTER (Theatrical Release USA 1955)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.0|5.0 Starsìììì 

The Indian Fighter
—simple 1955 Kirk Douglas western movie—runs with Walter Matthau and Lon Chaney Jr. It’s an interesting study of 1950 classic western content and the audiences who would be attracted to this writing style for entertainment. It’s an overall interesting watch that allows Douglas to drive the storyline. Good afternoon entertainment that could also run as good background at a party.
