Without a doubt, "Son of the Morning Star" is the best film on the subject of General George Armstrong Custer and the Battle of the Little Bighorn. And it is an amazing rarity in Hollywood's treatment of historical material: It is 90% historically accurate.
An epic made-for-television western saga told from both the US Cavalry and the Indians' perspective, featuring Gary Cole's excellent and complex portrayal of Custer pitted against Sitting Bull and Crazy Horse, all of whom have passed into American folklore.
