Chuck Connors, playing an Indian, has his hand marked by Mr Henry to indicate he's received his rations. He pulls his hand back in anger and says "I will not be branded like an animal!". Three years later, Chuck Connors would be playing a US Army cavalry officer in the TV show "Branded." See more »
The book Geronimo pockets during the river raid has a pink cover and is thick. When he later presents it to his wife, it is a thin blue Army manual. See more »
Laconic, one-dimensional western mixing "fact and legend"...
On the border of Arizona and Mexico in 1883, Apache warrior Geronimo surrenders himself and his tribe to the American Calvary in exchange for food and shelter on government land; naturally, the villainous, despicable whites sell the ground out from underneath the Indians after a greedy land baron sees they have turned the hard dirt into fertile soil for farming, leading to an unwinnable war between the fading Apaches and the U.S. Rather shameful script by Pat Fielder reduces history to textbook eye-for-an-eye business, not helped by a TV-movie cast and budget. Chuck Connors' Geronimo wages war on the Calvary men, though from what we can see it's really just Pat Conway's smirking Captain who's against him. Conway, decked out with an ostentatious neckerchief, unmercifully struts his way through this like a smug peacock...but at least he wasn't forced to wear a ratty black wig like most of his co-stars. Some good scenes, such as an impromptu chicken dinner at the house of a strict widow, almost makes up for the general lack of story and character development. ** from ****
