Fort Massacre, the 1958 Joseph M. Newman Native American Indian cowboy western (“The West unholsters its most savage story!”; “The West has never known a hero like the killer who commanded Fort Massacre.”; “Fort Massacre is Mighty!”; “Written by Martin N. Goldsmith”) starring Joel McCrea (he is well remembered as a durable leading man of the late 1930s and early 1940s, but he was far from an overnight success; he made his first movie in 1927, but it took five years and 20 movies until he became a leading man, and even then, he tended to play the male lead to a stronger female actress; unfortunately, he lost many great parts to Gary Cooper, and played a lot of parts that Cooper turned down; but he had many very memorable performances, and continued acting all the way to 1976, with a very memorable performance as an aging cowboy in 1962’s “Ride the High Country”), Forrest Tucker, Susan Cabot, John Russell, and George N.
