Branded a coward for surrendering his New Mexico fort to the Confederates without firing a shot, a Union colonel attempts to redeem himself by leading a band of condemned prisoners on a suicide mission to recapture it.
The prison set from John Guillermin's " El Condor " was re-used during the filming.
In the battle scene inside the fort, several Confederate soldiers are running up a stone staircase up the wall. Several of the men get gunned down by the Gatling gun. However, after the sound of the Gatling gun stops, a final man running up the stairs throws his hands in the air, as if he was shot and falls dead. This could have been from another gunshot, but the implication was that it was from the Gatling gun.
