 Gary Cole in the role of General Custer

The largest force of Indians in American history fought George Armstrong Custer and the 7th Cavalry on the 25th of June 1876. It tells the story of the Last Stand and the men who fought it, both white and Indian. American myth and folklore have immortalized Custer, Sitting Bull, and Crazy Horse. A stunning retold story from both the Indians' and US Cavalry's points of view. 'Son of the Morning Star' tells the story of the rise and fall of a ruthless hero, a man whose love, hate, and brutal leadership mingles with his bloody determination to erase an entire tribe from the face of the earth. 

Many films have been made about Little Big Horn and the events leading up to it. This is the most accurate and most popular version.

The son of the Morning Star


Information and synopsis about the DVD:

George Custer (played brilliantly by George Cole) and Crazy Horse and the events leading up to the battle of the Little Bighorn, told through the eyes of two women. In this sweeping TV miniseries based on Evan S. O'Connell's novel, Gary Cole stars as George Armstrong Custer, who led the 7th U.S. cavalry on the Great Plains during the early 1870s, when the nation was still forming.

General Custer's efforts were directed at maintaining peace with the indigenous Native Americans. Because of his own arrogance and miscalculations, Custer seemed doomed to failure. In the wake of the white man's greed and broken treaties, the Indians reluctantly marshal themselves for war. Toward the end of the story, there is a spectacular and reasonably accurate recreation of the Battle of the Little Big Horn that pits General Custer against the immortal Chief Crazy Horse (Rodney Grant). Buffy St. Marie narrates Son of the Morning Star marvelously as an older American woman character. There is a smooth feeling to this mini-series, and it moves along at a good pace for a TV movie. Early American history buffs and all who love great TV movies will enjoy Son Of The Morning Star.
