Hi fellow western fans, my name is Steve. I'ma transplant from the soon to be defunct IMDB messageboards. I'm a huge horror movie fan but also an equally huge fan of classic western movies, especially from the 1950's. I keep a watchlist of western movies that I have not seen and so I'm always on the lookout for any of the films on my list to appear on TV or wherever. One of the those long anticipated films is Kirk Douglas' The Indian Fighter (1955). Kirk is one of my favorite Western movie actors and I hope to see all of them at some point and some of the reasons I've been wanting to see The Indian Fighter is the cast. Besides Kirk, This movie features a very solid cast, Walter Matthau, Lon Chaney Jr. Elisha Cook Jr. Ray Teal, and Hank Worden to name a few. Second, The Indian Fighter is directed by famed director André De Toth. And thirdly, with a title like The Indian Fighter, this movie is screaming "Watch me!" However, with all that said, The Indian Fighter did not live up to my expectations, which is surprising since I usually find most Kirk Douglas westerns to be very entertaining and enjoyable. That's not to say that this movie isn't worth a look which it most certainly is but I would say that it's average film at best and doesn't take advantage of all the positives I mentioned above. But to be fair to myself and to my appreciation for Kirk Douglas' career and his contribution to the western genre I will make an effort to give this film another shot and maybe see it differently. Has anyone else seen The Indian Fighter and if so, what did you think about it?
