Yellowstone Kelly (11-Nov-1959)

Director: Gordon Douglas

Writer: Burt Kennedy

From novel by: Heck Allen (pseudonym "Clay Fisher")

Keywords: Western

In the time of the Sioux Uprising in the late 1870s, a trapper and his young ward are forced by the Sioux to heal a blue-eyed Arapahoe squaw, Wahleeah, who has suffered a gunshot wound. Main character modeled after Luther Sage Kelly, but the story is a complete fiction. Some definite homoerotic undertones in the relationship between Kelly and Anse, though later they both have eyes for Wahleeah. Adequate though disappointing western; about the quality of a TV movie.
