When an army scout retires to a farm in New Mexico he takes pity on a white woman and her "half-breed" son recently rescued from Indians, and invites them to join him. He does this even knowing the child's father is a feared and murderous Apache and that sooner or later a showdown is almost inevitable.Written by

After Patricia Neal had recovered from her stroke, she had a choice of either "The Stalking Moon" or "The Subject Was Roses" as her comeback vehicle. Although she opted for "Roses," she would have liked to have done "The Stalking Moon" also. See more »
When Gregory Peck walks out of the cabin he is unshaven, but when he's seen outside the cabin he's clean-shaven. See more »
A beautiful story, and superb tension, especially the last part of the movie. One of the best movies that Gregory Peck was ever cast. Eva-Marie Saint is excellent as the pleading mother, who desperately wants to leave Arizona. Robert Forester, as Gregory Peck's good friend was also very good in this film.
The marauding Apache, never seen until the last few minutes of the film, leaves a trail of death behind him everywhere he goes.
Great locations, excellent camera work, and a very tight script makes this a very original movie and easy to watch over and over.
This is a stand out film that no one knows. Too bad!!
