Danny: Kim, eight. Eight years and three quarters she says, that means she's eight. Sharon, nine. Apache women weren't just squaws, they often fought too. Michael, wearing a red band. He's daft, the Apaches never wore red. Me, Geronimo, chief of the Apaches, great warrior of the plains. Tom. Robert.

Horrifying!
6 January 2020 | by toffeeapples-11822See all my reviews

I was made to watch this film when I was ten or eleven, around 1978 while at Ysgol David Hughes in Menai Bridge on Angelsey (That's David Hughes School for you non Welsh people) and it has stuck with me since. Growing up in a rural area surrounded by farms it put an abrupt halt to my sneaking in to farms and exploring.
