A Man Called Horse

A Man Called Horse stars Richard Harris as Lord John Morgan, an English peer cast somewhat adrift in the American West. Captured by Sioux Indians, Lord Morgan is at first targeted for quick extinction, but the tribesmen sense that he is worthy of survival. The Englishman passes many of the necessary tests that will permit him to become a member of the tribe, the most grueling of which (and the one used most extensively in the film's advertising) is the Sun Vow Initiation. That's where his lordship is hung from the roof of a huge teepee with hooks through his pectoral muscles. Much of the dialogue is spoken in the Sioux language, though the film's much-vaunted "historical accuracy" is not altogether consistent, as witnessed by the casting of British stage luminary Judith Anderson as Sioux woman Buffalo Cow Head. A Man Called Horse was a solid piece of filmcraft and proved successful enough to warrant two sequels.

This was a great movie, because they spoke the actual Language of that Native American tribe. They did a great job on choosing the actors for this movie. I thought putting in all of those actors and looking into the history books for the info was the best idea in the world. The battles in this movie where great and there were virtualy no flaws in this movie. I think if the producer, writer, and director of this movie were to make another movie i would be sure to go see it in theaters and buy it on DVD. Well there is my two cents so e-mail me if you want more input on this movie. So over all this is one of the best movies I have ever seen.

An amazing movie! I felt as if I was there!!! The language spoken is unbelivable-a truly uplifting tale....I recommend it to everyone. I think It should have won SOME kind of award...I don't really follow the awards..sorry.. Great movie...

Although the natives Are speaking the correct language, during the most serious parts of the movie,the Sioux are telling dirty jokes and are making fun of each other. Also, some of the ceremonies are (rightfully) changed against exploitation of their true significance
