Universal City, CA: Universal Pictures, 1953. Revised final script for the 1953 film "The Great Sioux Uprising," seen here as "Sioux Uprising."

Though very loosely based on true events surrounding the two-year Red Cloud's War, during which a Cheyenne Native American chief repeatedly attacked US forces in an effort to stem the flow of White settlers, this film centers around a white man who attempts to help a Sioux tribe retrieve a large number of stolen horses, white attempting to convince them to join up with the Union soldiers instead of the Confederates. Shot on location in Oregon, with a cast partly comprised of local Native Americans.
