Britton of the Seventh
Cast & Crew
Lieutenant Tony Britton explains to his grandson that things were different back in 1876, when General George Armstrong Custer's Seventh Cavalry used muskets, and cavalry scouts did the work that airplanes do today. In 1876, Britton loves Barbara Manning. When Indian warrior Rain-in-the-Face scalps two soldiers of the Seventh to show his bravery to Indian maiden Otanowah, Britton is sent to arrest him. The tribe offers any three other Indians, but Britton captures Rain-in-the-Face and he is jailed. Meanwhile, Captain Granson's wife implores Britton to run away with her. He writes a note of refusal, but Captain Granson, learning of the affair, makes trouble. Rain-in-the-Face escapes and issues a threat against Captain Granson. To prove his innocence in the matter of the captain's wife, Tony cites the note, but Mrs. Granson refuses to acknowledge its existence, and so Tony is forced to resign his commission. He becomes an Indian scout and learns that the Indians are planning to attack. Britton tries to notify Custer, but his message arrives late, and Custer and his men are massacred. Rain-in-the-Face mutilates Captain Granson; however, before he dies, Granson finds the note clearing Tony and gives it to Custer. When the note turns up among Custer's effects, the cavalry re-admits Tony, and he and Barbara plan their marriage.
