Movie Info

Rod Steiger plays an Irish immigrant and Confederate soldier who, refusing to surrender to the North, hides out with a Sioux Indian tribe and takes on the U.S. Cavalry. Fuller's penchant for heroes with identity crises finds its apotheosis in Steiger's deeply complex, eccentric, and fascinating portrayal.

In a sense, it's an anti-assimilation narrative.

Audience Reviews for Run of the Arrow

as bold and progressive a western as one would expect from fuller, in spite of that most misguided of method actors, rod steiger, and his godawful 'irish' accent. more than 30 years before 'dances with wolves' and much better, even with charles bronson as a sioux chief named blue buffalo. love. hate. action. violence. death. in one word...emotion
