The Return of a Man Called Horse is a visually stunning sequel, again starring Richard Harris as an English nobleman who this time returns to the American west to save his adopted Indian tribe from extinction.

Irvin Kershner’s film is handsome, leisurely, placid to the point of being predictable but dotted with some action highlights; in particular, Harris encores a physical torture-ritual, explicit enough to drive some audiences to the concession stand.

Jack De Witt wrote the original Horse script from a Dorothy M. Johnson story, published in 1950 in the old Collier’s mag.

De Witt herein has extended the story, bringing Harris back west again to find his tribe wasted and dispossessed by land poacher Geoffrey Lewis.
