Among the two dozen or so westerns Audie Murphy made for UniversalPicturesfrom 1950-1966, DRUMS ACROSS THE RIVER (1954) is one of the better ones,featuring a gold miners-vs.-Indians plot with Audie caught firmly in themiddle. It's fast-paced, full of action, and features a host of livelycharacter actors, including some great villains.<br><br>Audie plays a wagon freighter in a Colorado mining town who is, initially,awitting pawn in a plot by a group of Denver mine bosses to stir up troublewith the local Ute Indians in order to get gold concessions on their land.Audie's dad, Sam (Walter Brennan), is a friend of the Indians and,followinga shootout with the Utes in which Sam is wounded, Audie meets with the Utechief (Morris Ankrum) and his son Taos (Jay Silverheels) and negotiates atemporary peace. Unfortunately, the hired guns working for the mine bossescontinue to stir things up and force Audie to aid in a stage robbery byabducting his dad and threatening to kill him. When Audie is charged withmurder after the robbery, he has to keep quiet to insure Sam's safety. Inthe final stretch of the movie, Audie has to break free, save his dad,subdue the bad guys, clear himself and avert a battle between Indians andcavalry. The whole story is told in 78 compact minutes.<br><br>Unassuming war hero-turned-western star Murphy was at his best in partslikethis, playing an ordinary westerner caught up in a tumultuous situationandhaving to fight his way out and summon up the moral courage to do therightthing. He always looked best when he faced down truly formidable bad guysand here he faces one of the best western villains of the 1950s. LyleBettger, who had one of the most sinister smiles in movie history,specialized in corrupt western capitalists (ranchers, miners, saloonowners,railroad men) who could be utterly smooth and charming one minute andmurderously evil the next. Here he's the miners' lead troublemaker and isjoined by a great rogues' gallery made up of future TV star Hugh O'Brianasthe black-clad Morgan, who also smiles a lot, and a quartet of thugsplayedby frequent heavies James Anderson, George Wallace, Lane Bradford andformerB-western star Bob Steele. In addition, there's Mara Corday as avoluptuous(and very attractive) saloon girl who does some of Bettger's dirty work.<br><br>Walter Brennan is very good in a rare turn as an upright authority figureand father. Jay Silverheels plays a sympathetic Indian and leads a band ofUtes who appear to be played predominantly by actual Indians rather thantheusual painted-up white extras. The Technicolor film was shot partly on theUniversal backlot with some fine location work at key California westernsites, including one dramatic desert spot representing the Indians' sacredburial ground. This was director Nathan Juran's third film with Murphy.<br><br>

This unheralded western is a solid yarn about a familiar plot of greedywhites scheming to mine rich gold deposits on Indian land. AudieMurphy&#x27;s role as an Indian-hating cowboy is a bit out of character forhim but he&#x27;s okay in spite of his clean-cut, easygoing manner. WalterBrennan, a surprise member of the cast, is great in the role ofMurphy&#x27;s father and friend of the Indians. There are nice battlesbetween the cowboys and Indians and the scenery is terrific. LyleBettger is the heavy and gives his usual fine performance. JaySilverheels figures prominently in the picture and is stern butdignified as an Indian chief. Morris Ankrum and Mara Corday are alsogood in limited roles.

Drums Across the River concerns freighters Walter Brennan and his sonAudie Murphy trying very hard to prevent a full scale Indian war whichLyle Bettger and sidekicks seem bound and determined to start.<br><br>There&#39;s some rich mineral deposits on Ute land which is separated by ariver boundary. Lyle Bettger plays on the greed of the white folks toinvade the Ute treaty land so the government will send in troops tomove them.<br><br>Brennan sees the game for what it is, but it takes Murphy a while tocome around. When he does he&#39;s the heroic Audie we know in most of hisB westerns.<br><br>Lots of action and a really nice performance by Jay Silverheels as theyoung Ute chief. Silverheels was on hiatus from the Lone Ranger and heought to be remembered for more than just playing Tonto. <br><br>There&#39;s also a nice performance by Mara Corday who is Bettger&#39;s squeezeand does quite a bit more for him than the usual moll.<br><br>Despite that the film probably suffered from some poor editing and ascript in which the character&#39;s motivations in doing certain things area bit vague.<br><br>Nevertheless Drums Across the River has enough action to satisfy anywestern lover.
