Wagon train survivors of an Apache attack entrust the sheriff's prisoner, scout Comanche Todd, with their lives despite his wanted-for-murder status.
This was the second of two films that Tommy Rettig made with Richard Widmark: he played Widmark's son in Elia Kazan's "Panic in the Streets" (1950).
Sheriff Bull Harper:
On foot through Apache country without no gun.
Cole Harper: Yeah.
Sheriff Bull Harper: This is his third day without food or water. I'm going to tell one and all that Commanche Todd was the bravest man I ever hung.
During the last third of the film, Tommy Rettig's hair goes from being long and fair, with a fringe, to being short and dark and brushed back and then back again on two occasions.
Opening credits prologue: 1873 Arizona Territory
