Along the way, the experienced hunter will team up with an old friend, the one-eyed Charlie, while in the meantime, the Indian Chief Crazy Horse whose child was killed by the same creature, is already out in the unforgiving landscape, pursuing the extraordinary bison. Without a doubt, both men won’t rest until they find the supernatural monster of legend, however, in this uncomfortable alliance, even the slightest mistake can prove deadly.
Plot: In this strange western version of Moby Dick, Wild Bill Hickok hunts a white buffalo he has seen in a dream. Hickok moves through a variety of uniquely authentic western locations – dim, filthy, makeshift taverns; freezing, slaughterhouse-like frontier towns and beautifully desolate high country – before improbably teaming up with a young Crazy Horse to pursue the creature.

I have to say for some reason I love this film….
I know a lot of people are not too impressed with this film. However when i first saw this about 14 years ago the images and atmosphere and chilly locations made an impact on my mind. I have seen this film several times and agree it is not one of Charles Bronson’s best efforts but I still love watching this film regularly. The hunt for the white buffalo in the Black Hills is presented as a psychological battle in the mind of Wild Bill Hickok (Bronson) and a spiritual one for Chief Crazy Horse (Will Sampson). Sure the creature itself may look unrealistic,but the concept of battling your nightmares and the teaming up of two racial enemies as well as the dark cold almost sinister locations make this an interesting experience in my view. I also feel the dialogue is extremely appropriate with the use of ‘Gold Diggers slang’. I am sure I am in a minority when I say I like this film so much.
Charles Bronson – Will Bill Hickok confronts a giant buffalo that is making a cruel carnage
This rare but intriguing western deals about Will Bill Hickok ( Charles Bronson)who suffers several nightmares about an enormous white buffalo. Will Hickok join forces with Indian chief, Crazy Horse, previous to Little Big Horn battle, ( here also named Worm and well played by Will Sampson)and a rifleman named Zane (Jack Warden) to track down a breathtaking white buffalo in the Black Hills. Hickok holds a dodgy obsession with the mythical animal until a spectacular final duel.
This strange picture packs action Western, thrills, chills, tension, violence and semi-surreal outdoors. The highlights of the movie are the impressive mountain of bones and the buffalo attacks with the victims running afoul that deliver the excitement. Packs something of ‘Moby Dick’ issue with the obstinate fight of a man to chase his prey. Other reviewers say that the white buffalo represents the fear to mortality. Features good performances from trio protagonist, Bronson, Sampson and Warden. Ample plethora of veteran secondaries as Slim Pickens as stagecoach conductor, Stuart Whitman as passenger , Clint Walker as gunfighter, Douglas Fowley as train conductor and also narrator , besides John Carradine . Other supporting cast in minor roles are Ed Lauter, Martin Kove and of course Kim Novak in a special appearance. Although much is filmed in studio, the freezing frontiers, filthy towns and snowy locations are shot in Bronson Canyon Los Angeles, Chana New Mexico and Canon City, Colorado. Appropriate and atmospheric musical score by the classic John Barry.
The picture is produced in average budget by Dino De Laurentis who made a trilogy with giant beasts (King Kong, Orca, White buffalo) and creatures design by Carlo Rambaldi (E.T.). The film is professionally directed by J. Lee Thomson who directed good Western ( McKenna gold) and all king genres as Sci-Fi (Conquest and Battle of planet of apes), terror (reincarnation of Peter Proud, Eye of the devil), adventures (King of the sun, Taras Bulba) and Warlike ( Guns of Navarone, Von Braun). J. Lee Thomson working from the 50s in England, finished his career making Chuck Norris (Firewalker) and Charles Bronson vehicles (Evil that men do, Messenger of death, Death Wish 4 : Crackdown, Caboblanco, St Ives). Watchable results for this outlandish Western.
