A disgruntled settler kills an Apache chief at Fort Yuma, and the fort's commander knows that the chief's son, Manga Colorado, will seek revenge and go on the warpath. He sends word by a courier to Fort Apache where a supply column is due to head across the desert to Fort Yuman, but the courier is killed by Mangas. The column, under the command of Lieutenant Ben Keegan who hates Apaches because he doesn't trust them, and because his assigned scout is Jonas, the brother of an Apache girl, Francesca, whom Keegan has been having an affair with. Also accompanying them is Melanie Crowne, who is going to do missionary work among the Apaches. Mangas attacks the column wiping out everybody but Keegan, Jonas and Melanie. Francesca is killed while trying to warn Keegan, and he realizes how foolish he had been in his prejudice and in keeping his love secret. The Apaches, dressed in the uniforms of the dead soldier, plan to gain entrance to Fort Yuma and massacre the men there. Written by

Despite what another Trivia entry claims, the number of on-screen killings in the film was not reduced to 10 for censorship reasons. In fact, there are over 30 on-screen killings during the course of the film, of whites and Indians. See more »
Capt. Santley sending a message to the General orders Pvt. Cassidy to "step on it". This phrase, to go fast, came from foot pedals in automobiles and pressing down to go faster. It would not have been a phrase used in the wild west. See more »
This is a B movie in color, and in spite of being directed by Leslie Selander who was quite an expert on westerns it is bellow average. Peter Graves is Lt. Keegan a man who hates the Indians, but has a love affair with the beautiful Francesca (Joan Taylor), who is a Native American. She is what is best on this film, where probably to make it in color they had to cut the costs so all the action scenes look very poor. Francesca's brother is riding with Keegan who does not trust him, and is disgusted by his sisters' affair. When he reprehends her saying this is no life for a woman, she answer that she also does not see herself walking behind a Native American husband. Joan Vohs is Melanie who does not have much to do or say.
