Episode Summary

The guys arrive in South Dakota in June 24, 1876, near Little Bighorn. They are captured by Indians, although Doug manages to escape and make it to Custer's camp. Custer refuses to believe Doug's tale. Meanwhile, Tony has tried to warn Sitting Bull. The Indians prepare to burn Tony at the stake, but Sitting Bull intervenes, impressed by Tony's bravery. A trial-by-combat settles the matter when Tony wins against Yellow Elk but spares his life. Tony tries to convince Sitting Bull to approach Custer peacefully, much to the disgruntlement and skepticism of Crazy Horse. Sitting Bull lets Tony go to Custer's camp with a message of peace, but Custer refuses it and locks both travellers up. They manage to escape, and are forced to watch as history plays itself out and Custer and his men are massacred.moreless

    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (3)

      • In the scene where Doug pretends to have something wrong with his horse so he and Tony can jump their guards, Tony goes to punch one of them, but clearly misses by several inches. However, the punch sound effect is still heard and the guard is knocked out.

      • In the scene where Tony fights Yellow Elk, near the end of the battle Tony kicks Yellow Elk in the long shot, knocking the knife out of Elk's left hand. In the close shot that follows Elk's left hand is empty. Then the camera cuts back to another long shot and Elk is holding the knife again.

      • I'm told by several folks that the scenes purporting to be of the Little Big Horn bear very little resemblence to that area of South Dakota.
