| Another Stagecoach story
Apache War Smoke is taken from another Ernest Haycox story about a stagecoach. But whereas Stagecoach took in all the views and vistas of Monument Valley, this film which had been done earlier as Apache Trail is a story confined to a stagecoach station and an attack thereon.

Geronimo and his Apaches aren't after everyone, but they are after one particular someone who killed one of the tribe. Popular sentiment is that charming bandit Gilbert Roland is the one they want, but no one knows for certain. So when a coach and its passengers and crew are trapped in that station and under attack a lot want to throw Roland out.

But public opinion doesn't reckon with Robert Horton who is the both the station manager and Roland's son. The apple really falls far from the tree here as Horton is as straight laced as they come.

Before the attack the tension is as thick as a London fog. But in terms of action Apache War Smoke is all you can ask for in a western. As for Gilbert Roland, very rarely do you not see him charming as he is here in films. A player it's always a pleasure to watch.
