Custer of the West

Big-screen biography of the maverick general who famously met his end at the battle of Little Big Horn in the Great Sioux War of 1876. After successes in the American Civil War, George Armstrong Custer of the Seventh Cavalry rose through the ranks and became noted as much for his bombastic cruelty as for his heroism in conquests.
