This is a really early Shatner, pre Star Trek. He's just a baby in both parts. The white good guy and the Indian bad guy who just happen to be twins. We have the ravishing of fair maidens, bushwacking, and incessant background music. It's a good show for what if presents itself as. A typical Western. I think Joseph Cotten must have needed the money. Vickir

William Shatner as a Comanche?
T O'Brien | Chicago, Il United States | 01/15/2005
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Have you ever wanted to see Star Trek star William Shatner as an Indian? If so, this is the movie for you. Shatner plays Johnny and Notah Moon, two half-breed twin brothers; their father was white, their mother a Comanche. Johnny is your average two-bit gunman while Notah is the leader of a group of renegade Comanches who have left their reservation. After years of fighting, the brothers decide to meet in Rio Hondo, a small Texas town ravaged by two rich landowners. They know that when they do meet, one of them will die. This movie was made on a small budget, which is quite obvious, and made during the peak of Star Trek's popularity. If you're a fan of the show or Shatner I recommend this movie, but at certain points, it is unintentionally bad.

William Shatner's performance as Johnny is pretty decent, but his role as the peyote-smoking, murderous Notah is laughable. To look and sound like an Indian, Shatner speaks in a slow gruff voice and wears a headband and war paint. Joseph Cotten plays Logan, the sheriff of Rio Hondo who tries to keep his town as peaceful as possible. White Comanche also stars Rosanna Yanni as Kelly, the saloon girl, Perla Cristal as White Fawn, Notah's squaw, Vida Molina and Luis Prendes as Garcia and Grimes, the two warring landowners. The copy of the movie I saw was pretty brutal, washed out colors, horrible tracking, so beware when buying this movie. For a western with dual roles by William Shatner, check out White Comanche!"

"This is a Story Written by Robert I Holt and the Famous Frank Gruber who gave us Stories such as "BROKEN LANCE" AND "BIG LAND" and many others.This story is about a family of twin brothers born to White Father and an Indian Mother.One grew up in town yet respected the Indian Values and the other with the indian's but gone wild,Both played by William Shatner.Only diffrence to tell them apart was by the colour of their eyes,one with black eyes was called Notha killing and plundering and living wild with his renegade tribe, while other was of blue eyes called Johnny Moon, always getting mistaken,punished , beaten up for the crimes of the other .Till one day he could stand no more so he asked Notha for a showdown to finish this once for all in the town of Rio Hondo where the sheriff Logan played by Joseph Cotten.It is a Battle bitween Good and and the one gone astray.William Shatner acted very well in this one as always but this movie lost the grip and became a routine half way down."
