But it’s still one army with a mission to keep the peace with the Navajo represented by Chief Dennis Weaver. But the growing divide may let the Indians conquer and Weaver is one smart and courageous warrior.
In fact Weaver is the best one in the cast, the one who steals the film in every scene he’s in. There’s also a good performance by Ray Collins who is a visiting general with a big agenda all his own.
Column South is a well done western with a good cast and a good story for this cast to perform. Definitely one of Audie Murphy’s better westerns.
