|Synopsis:||Seminole" is set at Fort King, in the Florida, territory of 1835, where West Pointer Lieutenant Hudson is charged with the murder of a sentry... At the court-martial he recounts his story: the wary co-existence between the settlers and the Indians was threatened by the strict commander (Richard Carlson) of the Army fort... Hudson's childhood sweetheart, Barbara Hale, agreed to meet with Osceola (Anthony Quinn), a mutual friend from their youth who had given up his own Army career to become chief of the Seminole tribe... Through her influence and Quinn's respect for Hudson, the redskin leader eventually comes to the stockade under a truce flag... But Indian-hating Carlson imprisons Quinn in a detention pit, the latter dies, and the situation deteriorates from bad to worse until the Indians rescue Hudson, who had been jailed by Carlson for killing a soldier while trying to restore peace... All the cast of the film (photographed in Technicolor) gives energetic performances... Barbara Hale's major asset is her physical presence, providing a tone of sincerity... Anthony Quinn plays the noble 'savage' for the last time...|
