I hope you had a wonderful weekend. I am going to just jump right in and get to the movie. I am trying to focus on finishing up part six, Into the West: Last Showdown and I want to get back to work.
I am going to be straight with you all. I have never heard of this movie before. I was shocked because I love Maureen O'Hara's work. I am definitely going to have to watch this very soon!
War Arrow is an American Western released in 1954 by Universal Pictures. The movie was directed by George Sherman and stars Maureen O'Hara and Jeff Chandler. The supporting cast is filled with familiar faces for any western movie fan: John McIntire, Suzan Ball, Noah Beery, Charles Drake, and Henry Brandon to name a few. War Arrow is based on the Seminole Scouts that worked with the U.S. Army.
The story follows cavalry officer, Major Howell Brady (Chandler). He is dispatched to Texas by the U.S. government to deal with an Indian uprising. His decides to arm and train a friendly tribe to help the soldiers deal with the renegades. The idea is not supported by the fort's commander. The two military officers have more trouble when Brady falls for the same woman with whom the garrison commander is in love.
Movie Snack Recipe
When I saw this recipe, I did not care that I could not tie it to the movie in any way, shape, or form. It just sounded too good for me to pass up, and look how cute. I suppose you can say the toothpicks are little "War Arrows," but that might be a bit of a stretch, even for me.
Now, I will of course I will be using a vegan bacon I make with rice paper (even my carnivore husband loves it. I have to put it out of direct sight in the fridge or he eats it all pretty quick), but this would be great with smoked ham, prosciutto or, of course, the traditional bacon called for in the recipe.
You can find the recipe for these adorable BLT Bites at She Paused 4 Thought (<--- click here for the recipe). Be sure to check out their other recipe ideas. They have some great ones!
So now you know what time it is, posse! It's time to grab your snacks and settle in for another great western movie!
Note: I could not find a trailer for this film.
