When Cochise bands together with Geronimo and other Indian nations, Major Colton abandons his fort, heading towards Fort Sheridan, through Apache Pass. Only thing in his way are the Indians he used to call his friends.
The Arizona wilderness, 1880. Gen. Fletcher Blackwell sends a message telling Capt. Walsh, who is escorting a wagon-train through Apache territory, heading for the fort at Furnace Creek, that he should cancel the escort and rush to another town. Apache leader "Little Dog" is leading the attack on the wagon-train and massacring everyone at the poorly manned fort. As a result the treaty is broken with the Indians and the white settlers take over the territory with the help of the calvary, as the Apaches are wiped out and only "Little Dog" remains at large. Gen. Fletcher Blackwell is court-martial-led for treason. The general's 2 sons, Cash Blackwell and Capt. Rufe Blackwell, each with a different disposition, go about trying to find evidence to clear their father's name. Written by
They had a common task: cleaning their father's name.
I like old westerns and sometimes I think I saw all the good ones, so finding this one was quite a surprise. The story is about a region where they start finding silver. As it was Indian property, they conceive a plot to grab the land from them. General Fletcher Blackwell gets his name dirty because they think he is behind this plot. Victor Mature and Glenn Langan are the General's sons who go to Furnace Creek to try to clean his name. There is a very funny character called Peaceful who likes to drink and gets arrested, but as there is no jail they tie him to a tree trunk. Peaceful still manages to go to the bar carrying the enormous trunk on his shoulder. Coleen Gray is the girl who falls for Victor Mature but is not certain that he is a good guy. An above average western.
