Thanks for the answer, stevewilk. The preacher on "Little House..." That's interesting. Remembering the "Court Martial" presentation, I can't picture a resemblance to that Custer as that preacher. It'll be extra interesting to see again.
I received the DVD I ordered on "The Court Martial of GAC". It did not come in good on my laptop, but it came in just fine on my tv. Well worth the $8 + change. It was so good to see again. Tho I've played it 4 times, I only saw it once. I fell asleep the first three times - no slam at the teleplay.
I did not recognize James Olson/Custer, but he was good! And he had a receding hairline you could not miss, to which that alone I give 10 points. I thought he dressed like Custer would have, and liked his performance very much. And, even tho Blythe Danner didn't have Libbie's dark hair, she was beautiful enough and poised.
Brian Keith is always good, imo. It really saddens me that he committed suicide a few years back.
Did the Custers really have a lawyer of that name in Detroit?
I generally don't care for Custer fiction, but sometimes there is something good out there that makes you think outside of the stockade.

I remember this vaguely as a youth but not enough action for me then but now its actually pretty interesting with tons of wonderful actors and at least they pegged reno like everyone else does as a failure that day and heres the youtube link if anyone wants to view it free . Its a really cool premise but nothing couldve survived the peaceful native american farmers as they were masters of torture and butchering and the best were old men , woman and children .
Ps : Brian Keith was tough as nails but the type of cancer he had was extremely painful and messed him up after a long fight and nobody should have to suffer that way EVER .
