Storyline

In 1868 Arizona the Apaches led by Cochise are on a warpath and U.S. Army Captain Bruce Coburn is tasked with protecting settlers on their way to Apache Wells. A group of undisciplined soldiers, led by corporal Bodine, make Coburn's task more difficult. When they're sent after a shipment of repeating rifles Bodine and four others steal the weapons and desert. Captain Coburn manages to return to Apache Wells where he vows to capture Bodine and his fellow deserters. Meanwhile, Bodine mets Cochise to negotiate the sale of the stolen repeating rifles without knowing that Captain Coburn has recovered the stolen weapons and has killed the other deserters. Cochise and Bodine chase after Captain Coburn in an attempt to recuperate the rifles which both the Apaches and the settlers need in order to prevail. A race against time ensues. Written by nufs68

One of the last great westerns
23 March 2011 | by (Stroudsburg,Pennsylvania) – See all my reviews

I loved this movie. Audie Murphy did a great job in the lonely outpost fighting Apaches. You couldn't expect less from the most decorated soldier in WW II. His swan song was a good one. I actually saw this online at classic movies but will get this as part of my collection. Kenneth Tobey (Bodine) probably stole the show as an old Confederate. The friction between him and Murphy (Capt. Bruce Coburn) starts right off at the beginning when he asks for a break. Captain Coburn refutes him and this relationship intensifies nicely. Laraine Stephens's sons getting in on the action is another great sub-plot that all fits in very well. This is worth seeing and getting on DVD if available.
