That was entertaining, but in the defense of the movie, at that range that Coach gun could have hit two riders at once.
You've gotta love the classics though, and that green-screen work was priceless.

im refering to the scenario you know where cowboy goes to the lake for a drink, sees an indian with a knife, dodges the knife throws him over his shoulders and woopteedoo sticked the knife in the indian
in real life, im convinced the indian would have been far more agile and stronger than the cowboy, these are natives who day one were taught the saddle, and how to fight!
by the way i cant remember a single western where a handful of cowboys/soldiers holding off apaches actually die in the end! they always escape, or the cavalry come in time.

Totally agree with you! The Indian would've been much fitter and stronger due to a lifetime of exercise and learning to fight hand to hand from an early age. Also I think their diet would've been superior to cowboys (everyone knows all they ate was bacon and beans!) so they would have more energy than cowboys too. I look at those movies as a bit of comedy now, but to be honest there was a fair bit of racisim in those old films and thats prob why the indians were portrayed so badly.
