Trivia

The story combines two real-life elements, one that happened in 1861, the other (the battle) in 1862, making this something of a prequel to Broken Arrow (1950). The events in that film took place in 1871 and 1872. Jeff Chandler and Jay Silverheels reprised their roles from the previous film, as Cochise and Geronimo respectively. See more »

Neat little western
4 February 2001 | by See all my reviews

George Sherman was an old hand at B westerns due to his long stint at Republic, where he specialized in them. His experience shows in this tight little Universal B western. John Lund and Jeff Chandler are stalwart as, respectively, a cavalry officer trying to avert an Indian war and Apache leader Cochise. The cast is filled with veteran character actors, which is always an asset, and the action scenes are extremely well handled. Altogether a tight, enjoyable little western. Recommended.
