Lieutenant McAllister is ordered to transport several ammunition wagons to another fort through Apache territory with only a small troop of rookie soldiers to guard them. Along for the ride is ex-scout Jess Remsberg who is trying to track down Ellen Grange, who, having recently been freed from Apache captivity, has mysteriously run off again to rejoin them. Remsberg frees Ellen again and leaves her with the embattled soldiers as he rides off to the fort, not only for help, but to find the man who killed and scalped his Indian wife. Written by

You white eyes want us all dead, but when I die, it will not be as a reservation Indian. I will die Apache - killing my enemies.

The United Artists logo is sliced off the screen with a bloody knife, slicing an "X" across the screen, revealing the opening scene. At the end, the same knife slices the live picture away, as (sort of) a fade out. See more »
Like the other reviewer of this movie, I, too, was a young child when I first saw this movie. It was around 1975 and it made quite an impression on me. My father, Bob Weissman, who loved the music in the film, first played the soundtrack for me. It is hypnotic and stirring -just excellent. The movie's storyline is not intricate, but what it lacks in depth, it makes up for with some suspense, good cinematography and of course, great music. James Garner is charismatic just like he is in "Support Your Local Sheriff" and Sydney Poitier, Dennis Weaver and Bibi Anderson fill their roles adequately. Overall, a good rental for a rainy (or snowy) afternoon or evening.
