This is the story of the riotous, romantic, exciting, astonishing and highly entertaining adventures of Lieutenant Commander "Bodger" Badger, R.N. (Kenneth More). An exceptionally likeable fellow, the Badger has one besetting sin, a shining honesty.
In 1867, Nebraska becomes a state, but still has no permanent peace with the Indians. Federal scout Wade Harper has a peace mission cut short when chief Thundercloud is murdered, supposedly by Harper's Indian comrade Wingfoot. Harper's efforts to get justice for Wingfoot are sabotaged by escaping murderer Reno. Finally, Harper and five others (including Harper's former girlfriend Paris) are besieged in a remote trading post by the warlike Chief Spotted Bear...Written by

Fort Kearny is located on the south bank of the Platte River in what is now Kearney County, NE. The different spelling of the fort and the county is intentional. When Nebraska counties were organized after statehood in 1867, the City of Kearney (population 32,425) was across the Platte River in Buffalo County, Nebraska. See more »
A motor, likely a generator, is audible during the dialogue of several scenes and is particularly noticeable at six minutes into the film. Motors could not have been a natural background noise in Nebraska during the 1860's. See more »
Seen a hundred times: a small group of people in a post station besieged by Indians
a brave cavalry scout
his former girl friend, now married to a rich coward - the rich coward
an indian cavalry scout, accused of murder of an indian chieftain
an old cavalry man, friend of the scout (and responsible for the poor humor)
an mad cavalry man and killer (Lee Van Cleef, who else ?)
The Story ? Kill a lot of Indians, talk much and often change the power (I thing the coward alone betrayed the other three times) The only good thing in this 3D movie is the short running time (excuse for my school English)
