This movie is based on a true story as written in A.P. Scotland's autobiography "The London Cage". The plot has greatly exaggerated the actual events of A.P. Scotland's experiences, including the addition of a fictional love interest.
It's 1876 and all the Indians are at peace except the Comanches lead by Black Cloud. When Black Cloud wipes out a town, only six soldiers are left and they head for the nearest fort. In the desert they are reinforced by members of a stagecoach and find some water at a deserted mission. Pinned down by Black Cloud they send an Indian boy who was Black Cloud's prisoner on to the fort while they try to bargain with Black Cloud whom they learn is without water. Written by

This is a remake of Sahara (1943) of which Lloyd Bridges was part of the cast. See more »
The last shot shows a hat with a 'crossed sabres' badge, with a '14' above and a 'G' below the sabres. The number represents the number of the cavalry regiment. However, the USA only had 10 cavalry regiments during this period. See more »
This western is a survival story as a cavalry sergeant leads six cavalry troopers and a few stagecoach travelers across barren desert flats and battle thirst, sand-storms and Comanches. The film is a carbon-copy of the 1943 film "Sahara" in a western setting with the soldiers fighting Indians with other western movie clichés thrown in. Barbara Hale, the cast's only femme, is solid in her support of star Broderick Crawford and is very much at home in the western genre. Her characterizations are always credible. There are some fine battle scenes but most of the film is bogged down with dialogue for character development. An Indian boy turns out to be a hero after nearly being abandoned in the desert by the soldiers. Color photography is good.
