Trivia

There really was a renegade Apache warrior called Massai, who was a bloodthirsty killer renowned for stealing, raping and murdering. He did indeed escape from a prison train bound for Florida and made his way back to his homeland. It is, however, doubtful that he was six feet tall and had blue eyes like Burt Lancaster. See more »

Goofs

Early in the film Massai is seen running through the dirt streets of St. Louis on wooden sidewalks, with wooden buildings of one or two stories. In the 1880's, St. Louis had tall buildings and paved streets, not wooden buildings and dirt streets. See more »

Crazy Credits

Lancaster as a rebellious Indian
4 May 1999 | by See all my reviews

The movie tells the story of a rebellious apache who refuses to surrender with his chief Geronimo,and wages a one-man war against the U.S. cavalry.

Following movies like "Broken Arrow (1950)" this film takes the side of the Indian.Lancaster is again at his most athletic in the leading role,but he makes a rather unlikely Indian.The same could be said of Jean Peters,who nevertheless looks ravishing as Lancaster's squaw.It's anyway an entertaining movie.
