It's 1876 and all the Indians are at peace except the Comanches lead by Black Cloud. When Black Cloud wipes out a town, only six soldiers are left and they head for the nearest fort. In the desert they are reinforced by members of a stagecoach and find some water at a deserted mission. Pinned down by Black Cloud they send an Indian boy who was Black Cloud's prisoner on to the fort while they try to bargain with Black Cloud whom they learn is without water.Written by

The last shot shows a hat with a 'crossed sabres' badge, with a '14' above and a 'G' below the sabres. The number represents the number of the cavalry regiment. However, the USA only had 10 cavalry regiments during this period. See more »
Any time you see a movie with a theater full of kids and it holds your attention, it HAS to be a winner. So WHY don't we see it on Amazon? Whay is there only one seller who has it TODAy on eBay, torturing me?WHY is there only a Spanish poster available? WHY was Lloyd Bridges in BOTH the original "Sahara" and this remake? Wasn't he planning Sea Hunt or something? The color as IO remember it is saturated - please refer to DeToth's other big color pictures: He fell in love, obviously, in 1951 with Technicolor directing the HARD to FIND "Man in the Saddle" with Randolph Scott and Lone Pine, CA...; back in Europe he did the Italian job 'Morgan the Pirate' with Steve Reeves in '61 (Eastmancolor); what about Vincent Price's masterpiece remake? 1953's 'House of Wax' also in Warnercolor... and don't forget Coop's classic and De Toth's first Warnercolor picture from the previous year: "Springfield Rifle"...unforgettable! What a colorist! What a stylist! and he lived to NINETY!
