Ruthless Vince Carden dominates the Arizona-territory town of Forge River and buys the scalps of murdered Indians. He has driven his brother Paul from his home, and this leads to the total disillusionment of his wife Martha. Haunted by the mysterious death of a girl he had loved, Paul ends his wandering and joins a wagon train heading for Forge River; with the train is Kate Mayfield, who is returning home after years of school in the East. Paul and Kate are the sole survivors when Apaches attack the train, in reprisal for a slaughter staged by Vince's men. Vince uses the Indian attack on the train as an excuse to lead the raid on a defenseless Apache village, which sparks a massive assault on Forge River. Written by

At the beginning, when the Indians are raiding the campsite and one Indian drinks what must be whiskey from what is supposed to be a skin container hanging from a wooden frame by the fire, the container dimples in on one side exactly the way a plastic jug would when squeezed, It's clearly a plastic jug.

Violent taking on two brothers well performed by Telly Savallas and George Maharis
This unknown western concerns about Vince Carden (Telly Savalas) , he's a baron cattle and untameable owner who rules over a small town called Forge River in Arizona county . He's a cruel proprietary who buys Indian scalpels . His brother Paul (George Maharis) left the town but he nowadays goes back . The Vince Carden power will be modified in arriving his brother looking for revenge and his vision from law and justice differs quite of Vince . Each owed the other their circumstances but is now the moment of reckoning . Then, there happens a battle of wits among two brothers with their ill father (George Colouris) as witness (such as King Lear). This is a trigger-taut drama of the strangest brotherhood and confrontation between the West's most upright man and his deadliest baron land .
The movie displays shootouts , love and hatred, stampedes, fighting , it is plenty of violence and contains effective action sequences such as the Apache raid on the wagons and on the small town . The film gets remarks from Spaghetti Western , thus the customary violent battles and shoot'em up , extreme and exaggerated baddies and ambition and vengeance as usual themes . Telly Savallas as brutal villain is excellent though sometimes overacting , he starred various Spaghetti Western ( Pancho Villa, A reason to live a reason to die, Criminal story of an outlaw couple ), George Maharis as good brother is pretty well , besides gorgeous Arlene Dahl ( married to Fernando Lamas and Lorenzo Lamas's mother ) as his wife and Fernando Rey ,as usual, playing a priest . Atmospheric , adequate musical score by Bruno Nicolai , habitual collaborator to Ennio Morricone and colorful cinematography by Wilkie Cooper . Jesse Lasky Jr ( Cecil B Mille's ordinary screenwriter and son of great producer , Jesse Lasky ) wrote the interesting scrip . The picture was shot in Almeria ,Spain , where in the 60s and 70s were filmed several Western . The motion picture is realized by a magnificent trio , the producer Charles H Schneer , the cameraman Wilkie Cooper and the director Nathan Juran , they made sensational Sci-fi and fantastic movies , such us : ¨First men oh the moon¨, ¨The 7th voyage of Simbad¨ , ¨20 million miles to earth¨, among others.
