Great story
13 March 2005 | by dbm31See all my reviews

When I visited my sister in Arizona she told me that an old girl friend of mine had been in a movie, quite some time ago. We went to one of the video places and rented the tape. (DVD was not around yet). We actually rented the movie to see Dusty Iron Wing McCrea, as that was the girl that I went with back in the 50's. We really liked the movie. My sister is actually my half sister and half Sioux Indian. So is another half sister and brother. We lived around the Sioux in South Dakota up until the mid 50's and learned of their ways and customs, so the movie was meaningful to us. I will try to get it on DVD as some of the other comments say the quality is much better than the tape.
