Movie Info

Apache was based on Paul I. Wellman's novel Broncho Apache, which in turn was inspired by a true story. Burt Lancaster plays Massai, a lieutenant of the great Apache warrior Geronimo (here depicted as an old man, played by Monte Blue).

Burt Lancaster joins a long line of white actors who played native Americans in this brutal Western, directed by the young Robert Aldrich, who was forced to change the ending.

... not a total success, but overcomes its leaden storytelling by being muscular and accepting of the Apache culture without being patronizing.

Audience Reviews for Apache

This is a horrible western. First of all, are we really supposed to believe that Lancaster is a Native American? It's too obvious he's not. Second, the story is wandering. Lastly, don't waste your time.

Enjoyable western that takes the "native american" side by pointing out the terrible racism perpetrated by white people. By blacking up white actors and having them say "white man speak with forked tongue". Sigh. At least Burt's heart was in the right place...
