    I watched 'Sitting Bull' as a kid in the 50's and watched it again recently(2016) as an adult with a greater knowledge of the 'scorched earth' policy of the U.S. government in the 1870's towards non-reservation plains indians. Never was there a greater distortion of historical inaccuracies then this 'silly' Hollywood script of events leading up to the 'Little Big Horn' battle. I could go into detail about the historical build-up to the climax of the film where fictitiously Sitting Bull meets with President Grant after the battle(Hollywood script writers must have been hung over) or I could move into a more accurate historical presentation of the famous Sioux medicine man, Sitting Bull, who by the way never participated in the Custer battle but instead was recovering from a Sun Dance ceremony where dozens of pieces of skin had been cut from his arms as a sacrifice. Probably, enough critical overviews have been written about Hollywood over the years and how it butchered historical events in movies of the past for whatever reasons...I'm just curious though-how was the actor who played Crazy Horse in this film(Iron Eyes Cody) for so many years able to pass himself off as Native American when his parents were of Italian descent? Oh well, it's Hollywood of the past and historical inaccuracy never stopped the theater seats from being filled.

    Sitting BULL. BULL is the operative word here. Beautiful out door sets, great stunt work J. Carrol Nash one of the best character actors ever, looked like Sitting Bull (not chief ,medicine man) sadly, way over dressed, fantastic outfits. He wanders around with a far away look in his eyes, his arms folded like he was in constant pain (get out the Preparation H) spouting pearls of wisdom. and did they play loose with history ? Well o.k But President Grant shaking hands with Sitting Bull. I fell of the chair laughing. Grant was the cause of all the tragedy to begin with Indian Ring scandal Dale Robertson looking like I cant wait for this one to end, bored, He should have stayed with Gen. Custer and got wiped out.
