After fierce war chief Ulzana and a small war party jump the reservation bent on murder and terror, an inexperienced young lieutenant is assigned to track him down.
Although technically not credited as such, Burt Lancaster was virtually a producer on the film, helping bring it to screen, taking a percentage instead of an upfront salary and having a say in the editing stages.
Apache war parties come in all sizes... sometimes with a hundred braves... sometimes with one.
When the platoon sets out from the fort, Macintosh's Indian girlfriend is watching them depart, with her face half-hidden by the shawl she is holding tightly under her nose. The next shot cuts straight to a close up of her face, but her hands are not in view and more of her face is hidden by the shawl.
The DVD version released in Brazil in 2003 by Universal runs only 99 minutes. Burt Lancaster's Indian wife appears merely in the window watching him when he departs.
