Apache gold strikes interest.
20 December 2003 | by See all my reviews

Indians, gold-seekers and dance hall girls liven this hackneyed saga of a selfish politician trying to start an uprising in order to get to the gold on Apache land. Very good scenery and strong cast; but the story is too predictable. The players include: Robert Young, Janis Carter, Jack Buetel and Reed Hadley.
