The Oregon Territory: wild and lawless in the time before statehood. A new Army commander, Major Archer (George Montgomery), is dispatched to bring order and peace to the region. But who is his greatest adversary? The native Indian chief who has led his braves to victory over several of Major Archer's predecessors, the local barons who oppose the move to statehood, or the fiercely independent daughter (Academy Award nominee Martha Hyer, 1958, Best Actress in a Supporting Role, Some Came Running) of the battalion sergeant who takes orders from no man? Newly remastered.
George Montgomery heads the virile cast of the B-plus western BATTLE OF ROGUE RIVER. Montgomery plays Cavalry major Frank Archer, assigned to protect the settlers in Oregon territory. Archer tries to find out why the previously peaceful Indians have suddenly become warlike. What he doesn't know is that duplicitous settler Stacey Wyatt (Richard Denning), working in concert with crooked land speculator Matt Parrish (Charles Evans), has been deliberately aggravating the Indians so that the other whites will be erased from the territory, thereby allowing Wyatt and his chums to plunder the land's rich mineral deposits. Curiously, the film's titular battle never takes place! Martha Hyer provides a dash of feminity to the otherwise all-male proceedings.
