The film is set in Mexico and the Indians are being called Apaches. However, they are dressed as Northeastern American Mohawks. In addition, the men of the Apache nations were traditionally long-haired. In this film, the "Apache" Indians are sporting Northeastern Mohawk haircuts. See more »
What is she trying to prove?
That one of us is a hero or a fool.
Well, anyway, it's her funeral. I don't go to any but my own.

The previous well done assessment of this film needs little further comment, except why has it not been put back into the loop as a wide-screen DVD? This movie is not one which plays often on the TV; I cannot recall having seen it in the last 30 years. The film and cast are excellent. Perhaps the film's flaw is the fact that it is not very well know as compared to some of the nonsense served up by John Wayne. Gary Cooper has made some really great films, and this is certainly one of them. Susan Hayward is always a delight for the eyes, and the Mexican scenery is most imposing. The one image which remains strongest in the mind about this movie is how, when, and where the Indians, single out which members of the rescue party are to be killed (one by one). I hope the industry which provides us with new DVD's every Tuesday will finally wake up and put this fine piece of work out on the shelf for sale where it belongs.
