Not Lewis Allen, but Irving directed Slaughter Trail. I understand you people know the difference, but someone needs to do a little editorial work. Yes?
Sad Work for Two Good Actors
- Frank Fraguzzi
This is an embarrassing piece of work for two very excellent actors, Brian Dunlevy and Gig Young. Seemingly built around a single ballad with a nerve-screeching beat, the plot is thin, the editing horrible, and the stunts right out of Keystone Cops. This is the type of movie that sustained the stereotypes of Native Americans.
One of the Top Ten Worst Westerns Ever
- Larry Fuhro
A concrete fort on top of a hill that is attacked by Indians riding across the desert straight at it? Wooden acting. Constant intrusion of unbelieveably bad narrative songs. Woman loading Springfield carbines that used cartridges, for soldiers on the wall (they were single=shot "trap door" carbines quickly reloaded by the shooter!). Obviously false black hairpieces on the Navajos! Was this movie for real? Or, was it actually a satire? At the end, the song says they are glad the "Slaughter Trail" is over. So was I !
Put movie on DVD
I enjoyed the movie, not only the actors portrayals,what the movie was about and the music. I find this movie as well as others that are not available for sale: i.e. "Son of the Morning Star", "Von Richtophen and Brown" and others, that are enjoyable movies but are not for sale. Why not?

As I was surfing the channels, I passed by Slaughter Trail, a typical western. However, when I heard the music, I stayed. I heard a full bodied voice singing with a chorus behind him. I looked up more information to learn that the writer of some of these songs was the same as the one who wrote, "Cry of the Wild Goose." The singing was similar to the Sons of the Pioneers, but more so.
