Movie Info

Flapping Eagle (Anthony Quinn) is the drunken American Indian who decides to revolt against the conditions his people must endure. Along with boozing buddy Lobo (Claude Akins), they hire a venerable attorney (Victor Jory) to search for loopholes in old Indian treaties. Dorothy Bluebell (Shelley Winters) is the bordello madame who takes a liking to regular customer Flapping Eagle. Mike Lyons (Don Collier)is the road builder who becomes friends with the Indians after they wreck some heavy equipment. They rope a helicopter and wreck trains to bring attention to the plight of native Americans. Flapping Eagle and the local lawman (Victor French) face off in a final showdown. Taken from the novel "Nobody Loves A Drunken Indian" by Clare Huffaker, the title was changed because of protests by native Americans. The character portrayals are insulting to native Americans, and the film justifiably lost an estimated 6 million dollars at the box office.
