Storyline

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.

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.

Even a lollypop makes this kid hard to love.

Ruthless Vince Carden (Telly Savalas) dominates the Arizona-territory town of Forge River and buys the scalps of murdered Indians. He has driven his brother Paul (George Maharis)from his home, and this leads to the total disillusionment of his wife Martha (Arlene Dahl.) Haunted by the mysterious death of a girl he had loved, Paul ends his wandering and attaches himself to a wagon train heading for Forge River; with the train is Kate Mayfield (Janet Landgard), 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. So, attack A leads to counter-attack B which leads to reprisal attack C which leads to final attack D, which leads to a climatic fight between Vince and Paul. Pass the pasta tamales, please.
