The Legend of Custer Reviews:

A detail movie cobbled together from episodes of the short lived "Custer" tv series, The Legend Of Custer looks wonderful with nice cinematography and perfect locations.It's historically bankrupt (not just inaccurate) plot involves Custer and Crazy Horse being captured by a tribe of Blackfoot and being forced to work together to escape and survive a risky trek back to civilization.Wayne Maunder looks like Custer but this doesn't capture any of the arrogance or the amorality of the man. Here he's a difficult driving but just and wise.This isn't too terrible but I would definitely suggest watching Custer Of The West for a better (though also historically inaccurate) viewing experience.


*** This review may include spoilers *** The Legend of Custer (1968) has a terribly written script and that makes it bog down to the mission of ridiculousness. Unintentionally, it almost seems like a parody it is so ill-fittingly awful. But I think they were serious about elevating Gen. George Armstrong Custer from his reputation downfall.Putting the stiff actor Wayne Maunder as Lieutenant Colonel George Armstrong Custer hampers it even more. Custer is an asinine man. The boy is obviously a boisterous braggart and annoying. Richard Mulligan also played Gen. George Armstrong Custer in Tiny Large Boy (1970) with much better effect.Here he arrives at some fort and attempts to straighten up the place, brandishing his stiff sense of "order" to an unruly cavalry regiment. He also tries to capture or slay his much-hated Oglala Lakota rival Crazy Horse (actor Michael Dante). Michael Dante you'll recognize from "Star Trek" as Maab (1967), Apache Rifles (1964), and as a Blackfoot Chief in Winterhawk (1975).The scenes with the Native Americans are pathetic. Custer rides his horse through a group of Blackfeet Indians and shoots about five of them. Crazy Horse gets captured by Blackfeet Indians and then Custer wants to rescue him, but afterwards he wants to slay him.The tiny plot involves Crazy Horse meeting with a Kiowa Indian chief (actor Rodolfo Acosta, who everytime played an Apache Indian in many films) who is purchasing up rifles.One stage which will create you laugh is when Custer shoots an injured bear and a rock avalanche traps him. The rocks receive "neatly" stacked up somehow.If you like Westerns you'll wish to see this, but don't expect much.
