When the wounded Wade Cooper passes out and falls face first into the stream after seeing Nancy Mailer bathing in it, he is lying with his face underwater and the broken arrow shaft is still protruding from the back of his right shoulder. When she goes to him seconds later and pulls him out of the water, he is lying mostly on the bank and his face is no longer under water, though he is still unconscious, and the arrow is missing. Later, when she arrives with him back at her camp, the arrow is back in his shoulder. See more »
Outlaw Wade Cooper (Dale Robertson) is a prisoner of the US Cavalry. When the Apache attacks, he is the sole survivor. Nancy Mailer (Martha Hyer) rescues Wade and brings him back to the her miserly husband Clint's (Wendell Corey) trading post. When the Apaches raid the post, Clint propose to trade their lives for all the guns that the Apaches would need. The Apaches take their son for leverage.
There are outlaws, Indians, gunfights, Cavalry, and melodrama. This is quintessential Western B-movie. The characters are all iconic. There isn't much subtlety. Not all of it makes sense. It's questionable why the outlaws didn't just fight for the gold, but instead help to rescue the boy. I get Wade's motivation for the Mrs Mailer. The other outlaws make little sense.
