In Apache territory, a supply army column heads for the next fort, an ex-scout searches for the killer of his Indian wife, and a housewife abandons her husband in order to re-join her Apache lover's tribe.
Two Army officers, an alcoholic ex-Confederate soldier and a womanizing Mexican travel to Mexico on a secret mission to prevent a megalomaniacal ex-Confederate colonel from selling a cache of stolen rifles to a band of murderous Apaches. Written by

This was directed by Gordon Douglas and stars Richard Boone, Stuart Whitman, Jim Brown and Edmond O'Brien. Boone stars as a former major in the confederate army and is now just a drunk who hates the Indians and kills as many as he can. Boone is found with a repeating rifle that was stolen from the army but he didn't know that and is thrown in jail. Whitman was the soldier who was in charge of the rifles but they were stolen and taken down to Mexico. So Whitman and Brown go after the rifles undercover and they take Boone and Anthony Franciosa, a Mexican who was about to be hanged, along with them. It's a pretty good western and it's nice to see Boone with the starring role instead of playing the villain.
