Storyline

Chief of Scouts Ed Bannon narrowly avoids an Apache ambush while working with the cavalry stationed at Fort Clark, Texas. The US Army is trying to talk peace with the Apaches and move them to reservations in Florida, and they take Bannon's efforts as detrimental to their new policies, so they fire him. When the Apache chief's son Torinada returns from an Eastern education, Bannon becomes highly suspicious of his motives based run-ins with Torinada in the past. Bannon continues shadowing the proceedings to the chagrin of both the US Army and the Apache warrior. Written by Ed Sutton <esutton@mindspring.com>

Rousing action
20 September 1999 | by (Benbrook, Texas) – See all my reviews

I never tire of watching this western. It's got a absolutely great cast, both major and minor characters. If you like Charlton Heston, Jack Palance and/or Brian Keith, I think you'll enjoy this one. Fantastic music score by Paul Sawtell (Five Weeks In A Balloon, Voyage To The Bottom Of The Sea).
