Report reaches the US cavalry that the Apache leader Ulzana has left his reservation with a band of followers. A compassionate young officer, Lieutenant DeBuin, is given a small company to find him and bring him back; accompanying the troop is McIntosh, an experienced scout, and Ke-Ni-Tay, an Apache guide. Ulzana massacres, rapes and loots across the countryside; and as DeBuin encounters the remains of his victims, he is compelled to learn from McIntosh and to confront his own naiveté and hidden prejudice.

Robert Aldrich privately admitted that he wasn't entirely satisfied with the way the film turned out. See more »
When the platoon sets out from the fort, Macintosh's Indian girlfriend is watching them depart, with her face half-hidden by the shawl she is holding tightly under her nose. The next shot cuts straight to a close up of her face, but her hands are not in view and more of her face is hidden by the shawl. See more »
[Holdig out army manual as if he is quoting it]
Any band of hostiles leaving United States Indian agency will be pursued and apprehended with all due vigor. What we have to determine, Mr. McIntosh, is how many of them there are and whether they are hostile.
Well, the first is open to question; the second you can bet money on.

During years I avoided seeing `Ulzana's Raid' because the title gave me the idea that it was a spaghetti western of which I had seen my share. I saw it a couple of days ago and was impressed. This is a film that goes into the mind of the Indian , and also of the Lieutenant whose father is a minister and has strong Christian feelings. The two of them live in two different worlds and for the officer to understand Ulzana is a very hard task, it does not relate to anything his father taught him. Nevertheless figuring out Ulzana is essential for his mission and he is coached into that by Burt Lancaster and Ke-Ni-Tay, an Indian scout. Ulzana kills every homesteader he finds, he must know that ultimately he is going to be caught, it is just a question of time. Lancaster is a master in strategy, but so is Ulzana, who at times seems like a maestro orienting his men. The brains here count more than the weapons. This is Aldrich's best film, he redeemed himself from `The Last Sunset.'
