Lassiter... Lassiter... They tell me there is such a man, great killer of my people. Often I think, what kind of man is this Lassiter, that hunts the Apache like the Apache hunts the white eye? Now I look, I see, same as me,

A tough western about stolen rifles and an undercover group sent into Mexico by the US Army to try to stop their sale to Apaches who would use them to kill whites. There is plenty of action along the way although most of it is there as filler. However, there are a few moments on the journey, a ferry ride across the Rio Grande into Mexico for instance, that explode off of the screen. In addition, if you want your Richard Boone quotient for the day, this film will definitely fill it. His part as a hardened Civil War vet who hates Apaches is memorable. Unfortunately, it's kind of trapped within the at times dubious confines of this movie. But, when the group actually gets to the guns, an elaborate plot unfolds with the great Edmond O'Brien as a Confederate general who leads a band of rebels and refuses to give up the fight and has the idea to let the Apaches (the ones that Boone hates with a vengeance) have the stolen guns so that they can kill whatever Yankees they might find. The driving force in all of this is hatred and vengeance, making this film pretty heavy going.
