Kentucky during the American Revolutionary War (1775 - 83): Daniel Boone (Bruce Bennett) is adamant to make fort Boonesborough into a permanent settlement, despite the fact that Boonesborough is on Shawnee country and the fort's commander Andy Callaway (Damian O'Flynn) is more than willing to give everything up and return to civilisation. But Boone is good friends with Shawnee chieftain Blackfish (Lon Chaney jr) ... that is, until Blackfish finds a new best friend in Simon Girty (Kem Dibbs), a commander of the British army, who would like to see nothing rather than the American settlement to be overrun by the Shawnee - and he thinks he has reached his goal when the Shawnee take Boone prisoner. But Blackfish is a thoughtful and sombre man, and he gives Boone a chance to save his life and freedom, if he manages to fight his way through 40 Shawnee warriors armed with tomahawks ... and of course, Boone succeeds.

Girty though isn't one to give up easily either, so when Blackfish's sons are on a scouting mission, he has them all shot by the British army and blames it on the Boonesborough settlers. And soon enough, Blackfish's men are up in arms and move against the fort, vastly outnumbering its soldiers and settlers.

What Girty doesn't know though is that Boone has saved the life of one of Blackfish's sons, the heavily wounded White Fox, who could testify against the British. But unfortunately, White Fox dies from his injuries during the attack. Still, Boone uses the body of the young Indian to trick Girty into betraying himself in front of Blackfish ... which spells Girty's end and peace between the Shawnee and the settlers.


Tired underbudgeted epic from a time called the 1950's, when American movieproducers (including Republic, obviously, which once had a sure hand in B-movie production) had obviously forgotten how to make decent B-Westerns. So instead of a solid action piece, Daniel Boone, Trail Blazer has all kinds of soap opera-style subplots thrown into the proceedings, like lovestories between its supporting characters that clearly lead to nowhere, and even a handful of songs that detract from the main plot. And the finale, in which Girty is finally revealed as teh traitor he is, clearly leads to nowhere ...

Not worth your while.
