This massively influential western from director Delmer Daves was among the first to tell the native American side of the story.

This superb western is one of the earliest to treat the problems of Indians seriously and sympathetically.

Essentially it's an appealing, sentimental Indian romance, with plenty of action.

One of the first Hollywood movies to preach for accord between Native Americans and white civilization. While the liberal ideology is commendable, the portrayal of Cochise by white actor Jeff Chandler is not.

A fine film all the same, despite the compromised ending, quite beautifully shot by Ernest Palmer.

We cannot accept this picture as either an exciting or reasonable account of the attitudes and ways of American Indians. They merit justice, but not such patronage.

My gosh! It's a Western with a liberal cry for peace, racial harmony and tolerance.

A quieter, more thoughtful western than many of its peers, this is so well directed and shot it's a wonder that Daves didn't have a more high-profile career.
