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 »

Extremely racist with little artistic or entertainment value
I am shocked by how many other users have mentioned that this movie shows "both sides" of racism. I found this to be not true at all and was continuously disgusted by the depiction of native people and the hate speech that comprised 90% of the Charlton Heston character's dialogue. Normally, I'd be tempted to complain that the native characters weren't given much depth or dimension, but none of the characters had much depth in my opinion. The storyline was unimaginative and overall, I can't think of anything good to say about this movie. Sure, Westerns have a reputation for being offensive in their representation of Indians, but don't let a movie like this turn you off of the genre completely. There are well-made Western movies that have artistic and cultural value.
