Mr Horn The story of frontiersman , and his career as a cavalry scout, a tracker, a Pinkerton agent and a range detective, and the final events in his life that led to his tragic death.
Best acting job by Widmark and Carradine
Mr Horn Carradine is remarkable as he becomes Tom Horn and Widmark Playing a crippled up old scout was magnificent. Supporting cast and direction were top drawer. No movie was better made than than this TV endeaver.I can never forget Widmark saying to Tom ” My good leg is now my bad leg”.
Not very historical…but still a very good movie
Sorry, but this film is not the most historical film made concerning Tom Horn. Not one authoritative source on Geronimo–neither Davis’s autobiography nor Angie Debo’s definitive biography nor any other–state that had anything to do with capturing Geronimo; he wasn’t even on the massive U.S. campaign, let alone serve as the one to bring the Apache in (the 1993 movie GERONIMO with Jason Patric probably portrays the capture most accurately). So this movie’s whole first half is all largely fiction, based probably on the lies and tall tales the real Tom Horn liked to claim for himself (on a side note to this, John Dehner plays an unsympathetic
That said, I must say I enjoy this TV movie a good deal and wish that it would get released. It deserves a viewing…but don’t confuse it with history.
