    I know the poem, but have not seen the film.

    The cast seems to suggest that it is rather ancient.

    Douglas Fairbanks was a legend. Not to forget, Cary Grant.

    And what were Indians doing when the men were being hanged, and women were being raped? Nothing?
    Natural selection doesn't allow the coward and the weak to survive.
    French killed Africans and hanged their severed heads over sticks for others to see. But then they were the masters, slaves didn't have human rights back then.
