In the 1958 movie starring and produced by Gregory Peck "The Big Country" the foreman (played by Charlton Heston) Steve Leech rides a very striking and beautiful black and white paint horse. 10 years later in the 1968 movie starring Gregory Peck "The Stalking Moon" the same horse is ridden by the Apache chief Salvaje. (played by Nathaniel Narcisco). See more »
The movie was set and filmed in the Mojave Desert, yet in an early scene at an Army camp, the still night air is filled with the sound of crickets and frogs. This would be fine had the camp been in or near an oasis, but it clearly was not. With no wind, there should have been no sound at all from outside the camp. 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!!
