I got a job for you... arrow wound.
Right up here (points to shoulder). Part of the head is still in it.
Well, if you can point to it, it ain't serious. Just leave it alone, it will fall out by itself in time.

This is truly a great Classic Western with the best super stars of all time. The special photography with cattle going up and down rocky hills and the many covered wagons and beautiful scenery of the Northwest was outstanding. James Stewart,(Glyn McLyntock),"Broken Arrow",'50, was a wagon train guide, and also had a wicked past life he was trying to forget about. Glyns wicked past came in hand having to face many situations that required lots of fighting and gun action. Arthur Kennedy(Emerson Cole),"Nevada Smith",'66 gave a very outstanding performance and also gave Glyn a real hard time because they both had past careers that were almost the same, however, Glyn was hateful deep in his very soul! Julie Adams,(Laura Baile), "Slim Carter",'57 was very beautiful and had a hard time trying to find out which guy she really wanted to HOOK! Rock Hudson,(Trey Wilson),"Iron Man,",'51, was a gambler and gave a rather weak performance, however, he was just starting his career and took almost any role that he was presented with. Jimmy Stewart always was very particular about any picture that he appeared in and I can see why he liked this film. Enjoy!!
