Eva Marie Saint,
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

There was a Ghost Dance movement, it was a religious revival of Native Americans in 1890, but it had nothing at all to do with the Apaches. It was popular among the Lakota (Sioux) of the Northern Plains. See more »
The Apaches have a saying - think what you want to think. You have to live with your thoughts.

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.
