Trivia

Because Michael Ansara did such a convincing portrayal of Cochise, and because of his somewhat Indian-sounding name, many viewers thought he actually was an Indian. In reality, he was born in Syria and his parents, while American citizens, were from Egypt. See more »

"Broken Arrow" Where are the Videos?

"Broken Arrow" was 20th Century Fox' entry into the race for western TV supremacy in 1956. It did'nt happen here. Unlike Warner Bros., TFC didn't apply the movie like production values to its TV arm and it shows. But does it really matter with westerns? Not as much. Syrian born actor Michael Ansara was well cast as the brooding Cochise. One wonders how much he must have cringed as Tom Jeffords (bloodbrother to Cochise and Army officer) played to the hilt by actor John Lupton, had a tendency to sometimes over-dramatize his parts. Lupton (as did Ansara) went on to play charactor parts in a host of movies and other TV shows. (Ansara as you probably know was married for a time to actress Barbara Eden).The show was nontheless entertaining and was blessed with a bevy of first class directors and guest actors.Broken Arrow was somewhat unusual for its time as unlike other shows and movies of its time it showed that Indians can be reasonable and humane!Nostalgia buffs would love to see cleaned up studio versions of this instead of the grainy 16mm versions available today! Where are they?
