Sam Elliott Double Feature
I Will Fight No More Forever
Sam Elliott and James Whitmore star in this Emmy-nominated adaptation of a classic battle between whites and Indians, friends and foes.
In a time when many tribes had already been f-rced on to reservations, Chief Joseph and Nez Perce of the Wallowa Valley held their ground. They felt confident that they would keep their land, especially because they had a friend and ally in General Oliver O. Howard (Whitmore), a Union veteran and army commander. But when Howard came with disheartening news from Washington - Joseph and his people must move to the reservation-the tides changed abruptly. When they refused the terms, Howard had no choice but to take f-rcible action. As the battle raged on, freezing conditions, death and starvation finally led to Joseph's sad words of surrender, "I will fight no more forever."
