Indians,taste better with ketchup and mustard.

I’m only a few films in and already I’ve hit another western.This one’s got Bruce Wayne’s (John Wayne) hardy brother in it too.He must have made this film right after the last one as he seems to be wearing the same clothes.The story is about some injuns who kidnap some girls and there’s these two guys trying to track them down and bring them back.It spans over 5 years but it could be over a week with the way it’s played out.One good character in the film is Moses.Brings a bit of humour to the thing.This western is shorter than the other one which makes it a bit more watch-able and the fact that its filmed on location against some spectacular scenery is a plus too.
