Storyline

It's 1885 in Arizona and an Army Captain has dispersed his troops to keep the whites off of Government land thereby keeping the peace with the Apaches. But there are those in Tucson that want the miners back looking for gold and they put pressure on officials in Washington. Soon a new commander arrives, the troops are recalled, and the miners go after gold. Whites then kill a miner with an arrow so they can attack the Indians hoping the troops wipe them out when they retaliate. Written by Maurice VanAuken <mvanauken@a1access.net>

Trivia

Contrary to popular belief, Geronimo was not a chief--as he is portrayed in this film--and was never even a war chief (during times of war Apaches often appointed a more experienced warrior to be war chief; when the war ended, leadership reverted back to the "regular" chief). Geronimo was a medicine man and someone to whom the actual chiefs came for advice. He led raids, but any Apache who was able to find warriors to follow him could lead raids. Many whites thought he was a chief because in negotiations he often acted as spokesman for Juh, the real chief, but Geronimo himself had no authority to conduct negotiations or speak for the tribe. The reason he spoke for Juh, however, was that Juh had a speech impediment and didn't want the whites to know it. In any case he knew that Geronimo was a more forceful and effective speaker than he was, so he let Geronimo do the talking, but it was Juh who made all the decisions. See more »

There is no historical evidence showing that Geronimo was fluent in Spanish to negotiate peace treaties or other delicate subjects involving the Apaches. See more »

Unoriginal but lively low budget Western
11 December 2009 | by lorenellroySee all my reviews

There is nothing even remotely original about Indian Uprising which regurgitates themes and character types from countless Westerns that went before it ,but it remains a watchable movie aided by its brief running time (75 minutes ) and brisk direction ,which ensures the picture never outstays its welcome George Montgomery plays UC Cavalry officer ,Captain McLoud who is trying to keep the peace between Geronimo's Apaches on the San Carlos Reservation and the white prospectors who are violating the peace treaty by searching for gold on the Reservation .His endeavours are so successful that he becomes a threat to the businessman backing the miners that they have him suspended and replaced by the inexperienced martinet Major Stark whose bungling ,bull headed leadership soon starts a fully fledged war between the Apaches and the whites especially when the Apaches are falsely accused of murdering a miner.Mcloud must try to rebuild the peace in the face of enemies both civilian and military all the time while he is wooing the daughter of the local Indian agent and mentoring a callow young officer Lieutenant Whitley (played respectively by Audrey Long and John Baer)

The movie is derivative and John Ford's cavalry pictures are a direct inspiration .The troopers are "types" lifted straight from Ford and one scene in which the blundering Stark leads his men into an ambush is evocative of a similar scene in Ford's masterly Fort Apache but done with less style and a lower budget .

The acting is proficient and the movie will entertain Western devotees well enough despite some muddy colour and an original ploy .Professional and solid but no more
