An American with a shady past joins with a morally-bankrupt Irishman to find treasure buried by Arabs in a deserted mosque in the Sahara. The situation becomes complicated when they are surrounded by bellicose Bedouin bandits.
A white red-haired girl has been raised by the Cherokee Indians after her family was massacred. She considers herself a Native American and she regards all whites as her enemies. Her feelings are justified when outlaws kill her Indian parents. Realizing she can't seek vengeance alone; she grudgingly accepts the help of white marshal Hollister and is now called the 'Rose of Cimmarron'. Written by
Newcomb's comment after killing Rose's adoptive parents, "The only good Indians are dead Indians ...", is taken from the misquote attributed to General Sheridan - "The only good Indian is a dead Indian...". Sheridan actually said "The only good Indians I ever saw were dead." See more »
This is one of hundreds of B-Westerns made, but does have a few advantages. It is in photographed in in bright colors, which makes it dazzling to watch. The cast is filled with sturdy veterans like Bob Steele and Jim Davis, although Jack Buetel,star of 'The Outlaw' is as charmless as ever. Best selling point is lovely Mala Powers as the lead, a White girl raised by Indians, out to track killers of her adoptive parents.As a buckskinned beauty ,she is decidedly the main attraction. Bill Williams lends his skills as the heavy. Packed with action and gunplay, this is a successful timefiller
