Trivia

In politically incorrect casting, Jewish actors Jeff Chandler and Susan Cabot played Native American Indians in this film. See more »

Goofs

Although the movie does contain historical accuracy with Cochise and Lt. Bascomb it errs on the designation of the guidons belonging to the 7th Cavalry. Custer's 7th never fought anyone but Plains Indians. See more »

Neat little western
4 February 2001 | by BrianGSee all my reviews

George Sherman was an old hand at B westerns due to his long stint at Republic, where he specialized in them. His experience shows in this tight little Universal B western. John Lund and Jeff Chandler are stalwart as, respectively, a cavalry officer trying to avert an Indian war and Apache leader Cochise. The cast is filled with veteran character actors, which is always an asset, and the action scenes are extremely well handled. Altogether a tight, enjoyable little western. Recommended.
