    Very interesting Western, with many undercurrents of sex, greed, racism, conquest, revenge, violence -- you get the idea. There is a scene in the beginning of the movie that was apparently scandalous at the time: Rory Calhoun comes upon a lake and a very naked Peggie Castle swimming in it. Only a super-imposed shadow prevents her exposure. In reading about it, it popped out at me that it said the color scene was colored darker. Color? The movie I was looking at was in B&W!!! I looked up some images of the film and found several posters that all have COLOR! emblazoned across them. SO WHY DIDN'T TCM SHOW THE COLOR VERSION??? Were there two versions???Also notice that there is a box on this page that there is no home video version, but on Amazon there is a DVD version for sale. Very strange.Rita Moreno has a nice part as Honey Bear, a lost Indian waif in a very Halloween-like get-up. Lee Van Cleef as a warrior chief named Fire Knife is in fine form, but perhaps not well cast in this role.The mystery remains why this was shown looking like a low-budget 50s TV Western show rather than in glorious color. Can we get another look please?
