Although this was Gregory Peck's only film release in 1968, he should also have been appearing in the Mirisch production " The Bells of Hell Go Ting a Ling a Ling ". Scripted by Roald Dahl, this production was shut down after just 6 weeks shooting due to " poor weather conditions ", a popular euphemism for a troubled shoot. See more »

A beautiful story, and superb tension, especially the last part of the movie. One of the best movies that Gregory Peck was ever cast. Eva-Marie Saint is excellent as the pleading mother, who desperately wants to leave Arizona. Robert Forester, as Gregory Peck's good friend was also very good in this film.
The marauding Apache, never seen until the last few minutes of the film, leaves a trail of death behind him everywhere he goes.
Great locations, excellent camera work, and a very tight script makes this a very original movie and easy to watch over and over.
This is a stand out film that no one knows. Too bad!!
