Storyline

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.

Crazy Credits

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 »

A diverting old-school western adventure
28 June 2005 | by (Virginia) – See all my reviews

United Artists' western is a rough-and-tumble affair of vengeance, pitched battles between cavalry and Indians, and torture. The action, and there's plenty of it, takes place in the beautiful expanses of southern Utah, the landscape of which consists of every earthen color, to brilliant effect. The main plot has an army scout searching high and low for his Indian wife's killer, and events conspire to have the two men riding with a cavalry troop, although each man is unaware of exactly what drives the other. James Garner and Sidney Poitier head a good cast, but Poitier's character seems out of place in the film. Garner is smitten with a white woman who was captured by the Indians, which creates further tensions in the cavalry patrol. The cinematography is excellent and the stunning vistas of the old west are on grand display. The only drawback to this adventure is Neal Hefti's music score. The jazzy musical accompaniment seems more suited to a made-for-television special than a major western film.
