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

The Apaches were sent to Oklahoma, not Florida. It is true that Geranimo was sent to Florida but that was an individual punishment See more »
I think they're swinging too wide for a circle, Ed. Maybe they're not using a pattern at all.
Apaches always use a pattern for their campaigns. I've seen 'em fight in a circle covering hundreds of miles or in an X as big as the whole territory. Even a zigzag pattern. We got to be sure which one they're using now.

As opposed to the politically correct people here, i think this movie portrays the Indian more realistic than the politically correct image will have it. Fact is it wasn't only the white man who broke treaties and peace initiatives. It's not good to show this down the politically correct memory hole. That's why I think this kind of movies are important and should of course be shown on TV. Of course, I wholeheartedly disagree with the notion that this movie should be banned like some reviewers have hinted upon.
A strong performance by Palance and a fine Heston plus a very interesting storyline makes this one of my favorites.
