Bob, the Army scout, leads the way for Gen. Custer.
The famous "Last Stand" of Gen. Custer and his gallant Seventh U.S. Cavalry. Thousands of Indian warriors and Cavalrymen take part in these thrilling battle scenes. Historically correct, you will never forget this marvelous portrayal of sublime courage in the face of death. An astounding climax.
To shield Betty's brother, Bob, though innocent, accepts his dismissal from West Point.
BELOW -- Naked, bloodthirsty -- thousands of Indians in their war dance vow death to the palefaces.
Caught swindling the Indians -- Belden defies Custer.

The realism of the Indian fighting may be judged from the fact that grandsons of many of the famous Chiefs who took part in the Custer Massacre appear in "The Flaming Frontier," many in the identical costumes handed down from grandfather to son and grandson.
