Anti-US military Western with Peter Strauss and Candice Bergen
Released in 1970 and directed by Ralph Nelson, “Soldier Blue” is a Western starring Peter Strauss and Candice Bergen as a soldier and Native sympathizer, the only two survivors of a cavalry group Massacred by the Cheyenne. As they travel together to get back to the soldier’s unit he struggles with his affection for the woman and a revulsion for her anti-US government outlook. Then he sees the awful truth.

This controversial Western showcases the atrocities of the US Army against Native Americans wherein the average US Cavalry solder is depicted as a shifty, droop-eyed, unwashed, stupid cracker idiot with flies buzzing around his head. The opening Indian attack is set in order to align the audience’s sympathies with Honus (Strauss, the ‘Soldier Blue’ of the title), so that the viewer travels on the same journey as him, starting by regarding the Indians as murderous barbarians, and ending up forced to confront the idea that maybe his kin are just as barbaric when the occasion is ‘right’ (or, should I say, wrong).

The final massacre is shocking, but hampered by the film’s insistence on stacking the deck so completely in terms of depicting the US military as savages dripping with ee-vil. In other words, it loses its impact because it’s so overdone.

In reality, utterly barbaric attacks applied to both uncivilized Natives and the civilized Europeans, but more so with the former, which is documented. Since the 60s-70s there has been an overemphasis on the injustices committed by the US Army or settlers and we get a handful of examples: Wounded Knee, Bear River and Sand Creek (the latter being what “Soldier Blue” is based on). Yet we never hear the other side of what caused these events nor do we hear of the atrocities of Natives committed against New Americans. For instance, we never hear of the Dakota “War” of 1862 (Santee Sioux went on the war path and murdered between 600-800 white settlers, which constituted the largest death toll inflicted upon American civilians by an enemy force until 9/11), The Ward Massacre, The Nez Perce uprising which killed dozens of settlers in Idaho and Wyoming, and the Massacre at Fort Mims. We never hear of the countless innocent settlers who were murdered by roaming bands of young “warriors”: While a chief was signing a peace treaty on the tribe’s behalf they were out robbing, raping and murdering.

I’m just saying that it’s easy to be pro-Native sitting on the comfort of your sofa, but not so much when you and your loved ones are threatened with torture & slaughter.

The Europeans wanted the Native’s land and resources while the Indians wanted the technology of the Europeans. Both sides used treaties to make peace while still trying to get what they wanted when war was too expensive. Both sides made war when they felt no other option.

I love Native American culture, but the whitewashing of Native atrocities and this revisionist history stuff is dishonest and unbalanced. “Soldier Blue” is guilty of this but, as a movie, it’s entertaining and its message is necessary in light of all the movies that depict Indians as sub-human savages to be gunned down on the spot.

The film runs 114 minutes and was shot in Mexico.
