The Savage Seven Reviews

A semiunderground classic from American International pits the white man against the Indian once again; only in this version, everyone turns out a loser. Roarke is the head of a motorcycle gang who rides into a small Indian shanty town, which has been at the mercy of corrupt businessmen. Taken by pretty Indian waitress Frank, Roarke helps out her brother, Walker (son of the late star by the same name, famous for his role as Bruno in Alfred Hitchcock's STRANGERS ON A TRAIN), in a disagreement he has with Berger, whose store has been torn apart by both Indian and motorcycle gangs. The cops come in and make several arrests, with Berger agreeing to drop charges against the motorcyclists if they rough up the Indians. A feud develops between the two groups, though Roarke and Frank are eventually able to resolve their differences. When an Indian girl is raped, someone murders one of Roarke's boys. A full-fledged battle develops, with the real culprit, Berger, getting off scot-free. Very violent, but with its share of golden moments.
