Storyline

A greedy businessman is charging outrageous prices to homesteaders who wish to join a wagon train he's organizing to travel from Missouri to California. Meanwhile, he has broken the treaty his predecessor made with the Osage Indians to provide trade goods in return for passage across the Native Americans' land. When the wagonmaster hired for the trip learns of the businessman's duplicity and tries to set things right before the Indians go on the warpath, the businessman's henchmen are ordered to kill him.

Sheer stupid greed
11 May 2017 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

The film Fort Osage is marked by some truly stupid and greedy villainy. Because of that some truly preventable bad things happen.

Rod Cameron stars and he plays a wagonmaster who is refusing to take a train west and the settlers scheduled to travel want to know why. Easy enough, the Osage Indians are on the warpath. Cameron goes to Osage country to find out the answer.

His previous boss had his own treaty with the Osage. The tribe got a delivery of supplies with each wagon train for safe passage. Kind of like in Charge Of The Light Brigade where the British where the British stop their stipend to C.Henry Gordon, but trust he won't go on the warpath there.

Difference is that Morris Ankrum is more interested in money and Douglas Kennedy is a nasty sort in general. Kennedy dominates Ankrum in any event. Just sheer stupid greed.

At 6'5" Cameron cuts a taller figure in the saddle than John Wayne, he's also a bit stiffer in his acting. Ankrum and Kennedy are the real story in Fort Osage.
