Grayeagle is a barely disguised reworking of John Ford's The Searchers, with Ford stock company alumnus Ben Johnson essaying the John Wayne role, and Lana Wood playing a character not unlike the one portrayed by her sister Natalie in the earlier film. The major difference is that Grayeagle is told largely from the Indians' point of view. Johnson plays John Colter, who devotes his life to tracking down Cheyenne brave Grayeagle (Alex Cord), the kidnapper of his daughter Beth (Lana Wood). One of the new plot wrinkles is the revelation that Cheyenne Chief Running Wolf (Paul Fix), and not Colter, is Beth's real father, so who's rescuing whom from what? Other veteran performers participating in Grayeagle are Jack Elam and Iron Eyes Cody, while producer-director-writer Charles Pierce also shows up in a small role. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
Normally not a Western I'd watch but I picked it up at the local thift store for $1 on VHS so I couldn't pass it up.It's not a movie I would want to add to my DVD collection but it was an alright flick & I think I got my $$$'s worth.I wanted to like Greyeagle more then I did but for some reason I didn't.I don't know if it's because it wasn't the usual shoot em up Western I prefer or what.It felt more like something to watch just because I was in the mood for a Western.My favorite part of the movie was the final scene.In the end, Everything worked out the way I wanted it to
my parents owned this movie and they considered it one of their favorite westerns..i like to watch it now because it reminds me of them, they are passed away now, and I also like GreyEagle, I'd fall for a guy like him anytime
