: Hey, that was interesting, so don't you think about deleting anything, next time you ramble!
: I rented "Geronimo" several weeks ago and had it mixed up with what must have been a series about Geronimo's life, including his youth. So, I was waiting for some flashbacks all the time that never came. Has anyone seen the series?
: Anyway, I thought the movie was pretty good, although it might have been better had it shown everything from Geronimo's perspective instead of the young officer's. Also, I found it interesting to see Al Siebert portrayed in there, who must have been quite a legend in Arizona's history. I have just read about him recently in several publications, one of them a small booklet called "The Yavapai". There is also a wonderful webpage about AZ history with a page on Siebert, I'll put the link below. It's the homepage of a man from Globe, a small town in East central AZ, where Siebert spent the last years of his life (he didn't die in the bar, as in the movie).
: Oh, and for the connection to LOTM: Wes Study was impressive as always in "Geronimo".
I just remebered that there is another excellent book out about the Apache Wars, Cochise and Geronimo. It is called "Once They Moved Liked The Wind" by David Roberts. A friend gave it to me as a birthday gift and I read in 1993. I really liked it.
