Flaming Star(1960)

Flaming Star (1960). Western film. Cast: Elvis Presley and Dolores Del Rio. Based on the book Flaming Lance (1958) by Clair Huffaker. It is said that Presley gave one of his best acting  performances in this dramatic role. The film was directed by Don Siegel.

Elvis Presley plays Pacer Burton, the half-white, half-American Indian, son of a Kiowa mother and a Texas rancher father. His family, including a half-brother, Clint, live on the Texas frontier. Trouble begins when the Kiowa tribe begin raiding the homesteads. Pacer soon finds himself caught between the two worlds that forces the Burtons to choose sides with tragic results. .

I agree.. this was a very interesting western with exceptional performance by Elvis Presley who only sings two songs at the beginning film.
