Quick Overview

Stacy Harris

Directed by Lloyd Bacon



Print: color

Runtime: 80 min.

Genre: western

Print Quality: B



Several genuine Native Americans dot the cast of Universal's The Great

Sioux Uprising. The scene is the frontier outpost of Laramie Junction,

where livery stable owner Joan Britton (Faith Domergue) and rancher

Stephen Cook (Lyle Bettger) carry on a friendly rivalry while trading

horses with the cavalry. On friendly terms with the local Sioux, Joan

hopes to persuade the tribe to sell some of its ponies to the military.

Cook's method is more direct: he and his men steal the horses, then sell

them for a 100% profit. Into this situation rides ex-Union medical officer

Jonathan Westgate (Jeff Chandler), who promises Apache chief Red

Cloud (John War Eagle) that he'll track down the rustlers. Westgate also

organizes the local ranchers to sell their horses to the military, thereby

undercutting the duplicitous Cook. Complications arise when Stand

Waite, an Apache officer in the Confederate army, tries to persuade his

tribesmen to join the Southern cause. All the various plotlines converge

in the climactic uprising, which is shown to be the by-product of white

greed.
