Storyline

Logan Cates, a drifter, is traveling through Apache country. He is joined by a few civilians and a small band of soldiers at a water hole when they get pinned down by Apaches. Unable to get away, the small party is killed one by one as the food and water supply dwindles. But then the storm that Cates was waiting for comes up, and using gun powder, he puts his escape plan into action. Written by Maurice VanAuken <mvanauken@a1access.net>

Goofs

When the trooper runs at the Apaches to throw the third canteen bomb, its fuse is not lit and the explosion occurs in front of him before he lets go of it. Apparently the script just called for him to be killed off somehow, because the other two just threw theirs from the same close distance, while he had to run right into the middle of the Indians to 'throw' his.

Minor Saturday matinee Western classic
17 April 2002 | by (Las Vegas U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

Rory Calhoun never really made it to "A" star status as a movie actor,but the roles he played in 'B' movies such as Apache Territory suited him well.A handsome and capable actor he made it bearable to watch movies such as this especially when you needed to while away a couple of hours and forget the troubles of the world.This is your basic story of a group of people in the desert surrounded by a horde of Apache indians intent on doing them harm. John Dehner and Leo Gordon -two extremely competent character actors- add to the allure of Apache Territory. The only failure I found was the addition of two goodlooking females to add romantic interest,when the filmmakers could have concentrated more on the interaction between the attacking Indians and the U.S. calvary. The movie tends to drag in the middle stages,due I think to the female cast members ,but finally builds to an entertaining climax. Overall a nice movie to watch when its raining outside and you don't want to mow the lawn.
