IMDB Trivia: On account of this film, which George Lucas found to be better than its predecessor, he hired Irvin Kershner to direct Star Wars: Episode VThe Empire Strikes Back (1980).

For myself, I found the the film is a joy to watch simply because the cinematography and Direction (Irvin Kershner) are brilliant.

Director Irvin Kershner has said that of all his films, this one has the best score (by Laurence Rosenthal).
Mexican filming locations were used because the Mexican terrain resembles that of South Dakota but has a milder climate.
Mexican actors were used in the Sioux and Rickaree Native roles because they give more emotion on the screen than American Indians do, according to producer Sandy Howard. Naturally the film was then criticized it for its scarcity of Native Americanactors in the cast, and for portraying a Sioux tribe requiring a white man’s aid to defend itself.

A pretty good Western.
Worth one watch at least.
