One note on the history being portrayed in the movie: I've noticed that several reviewers believe this movie is set during the French and Indian War (1754-1763.) It's not. "Unconquered" is set in the period immediately following the F&I War when New France had already become British Canada. During this period the Indians of the Great Lakes region, under the leadership of an Ottawa chief called Pontiac, rose against the British conquerors because of restrictive British trade policies and in the forlorn hope of encouraging a French return to North America which would restore a trade balance. Pontiac's so called "rebellion" is the setting of "Unconquered" not the French and Indian War.
While the story-plot is ficticious, it blends well with the historical saga of the French-Indian War. The relationship between the French and their Indian allies and the British and the American Colonialists. The only exception that is kind of far fetched is having Boris Karloff as the evil indian chief, but that can be overlooked since it is the immortal Boris Karloff and his superb acting.
Overall the action, the plot and the technicolor, which was new when this was filmed, makes this a movie that fans of historical drama and action would enjoy.

This is a good old movie that is fun to watch. Gary Cooper does well as does Howard Da Silva, who always plays good bad guy. Read morePublished on May 1 2013 by pipersnakis
