It was included in the first movies4men broadcast, and then cut out of every screening since.
The line does seem harsh by today’s standards … but historically, and in the time of the film’s production, no one would give this a 2nd thought.
’Navajo Joe’ is full of derogatory comments about native Americans … but that movie is now seen as pro “Indian”, so presumably it’s more acceptable.
To me, we’re looking at adventure films made about rough characters in rough times, so in that context, I personally don’t have an issue. You can’t sweep over history to make it more palatable, whether it’s the 1860s or 1960s. People said, did and believed much worse in reality than anything portrayed in these movies, which dated or not are just simple escapist films. My humble opinion
