Real Stories Of The Old West contains the following four films....
Crazy Horse & Custer
Long before Little Big Horn, two legendary enemies find themselves trapped together in deadly Blackfoot territory. Share the astounding adventure of Custer and the Indian, Crazy Horse, as they form an alliance in their struggle against the murderous Blackfoot tribe. (90 mins.)
Chief Sitting Bull of the Sioux tribe is forced by the Indian-hating General Custer to react with violence, resulting in the famous Last Stand at Little Bighorn. Parrish, a friend to the Sioux, tries to prevent the bloodshed, but is court-marshaled for "collaborating" with the enemy. Sitting Bull, however, manages to intercede with President Grant on Parrish's behalf. (105 mins.)
Daniel Boone: Trailblazer
In this action-packed adventure, we find Daniel Boone right in the heart of the Shawnee Nation. Boone's settlement is in danger of being attacked by hostile Indians. Can Boone make peace with the Indians and stop a war? (90 mins.)
Wanted: The Sundance Woman
Fugitive Etta Place (Katharine Ross) forms a risky alliance with Pancho Villa following the deaths of Butch and Sundance. Ross, who played Etta Place in 1969's Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, reprises the role in this classic western tale with co-star Hector Elizondo who plays the infamous Pancho Villa. (97 mins.)

"These are "real stories" all right. Any resemblance to actual American history is purely accidental!
CONTENTS of REAL STORIES OF THE OLD WEST 4 Movie Pack:
CRAZY HORSE AND CUSTER-- Complete fiction. Patched-together episodes of a short-lived 1967 TV series ("Custer"). Featured in the cast is Peter Palmer, whose first film role was the title character in the screen adaptation of the Broadway musical, "Li'l Abner."
DANIEL BOONE, TRAIL BLAZER-- Boone and his group of settlers face violent resistance from Pawnees who have been wrongly told by a French renegade that the newcomers intend to kill the Indians and steal their land.
SITTING BULL-- L.A.'s Iverson Ranch stands in for the hilly Montana country where Custer's Last Stand occurred. A cavalry major and the chief of the Sioux nation together attempt to avert the coming battle. Portraying Crazy Horse is Iron Eyes Cody, who once perjured himself in court by claiming to be Native American. Cody was in reality the son of Italian immigrants.
WANTED: THE SUNDANCE WOMAN-- Etta Place, the Sundance Kid's widow, joins up with Pancho Villa. Katherine Ross was also Etta in the 1969 Newman/Redford Butch & Sundance movie. Good cast in this made-for-TVer.
