Arrowhead, the mere mention of it in Western circles sometimes induces a sharp intake of breath, even a furrowed brow or two. Starring Charlton Heston and Jack Palance, directed by Charles Marquis Warren; who also adapts the screenplay from W.R. Burnett's novel, Adobe Walls, Arrowhead rewrites the Indian Wars and firmly paints the Apache as distrustful thugs.

Based in essence on real life Indian scout, Al Seiber, with Heston in the role but named as Ed Bannon here, story is set in Texas 1878 at the Fort Clark Cavalry post. Peace has been brokered and the good old Cavalry boys have arranged for the Apache, led by a newly educated Toriano (Palance), to be dog tagged and whipped off to some arid land in Florida. However, the pesky Toriano has been plotting a revolution and is ready to lead his people in an all out assault on whitey and to hell with the treaty. Only white dude who smells a rat is Bannon, who with some Indian blood coursing through his veins, hates the Redskins and will never trust them. But the Cavalry hate Bannon as well, because he is in the way, causing friction, a hindrance to their wonderful ideas for piece.

No surprises for guessing what happens next! If Warren and the big wigs at Paramount Pictures were aware of the racist overtones here in 1953? Is cause for debate. I tend to agree with the theory that puts this as a sort of anti-communist allegory, but of course that doesn't excuse the xenophobic narrative whoever is on the receiving end! Yet surely the makers were genuine in trying to make a good old Cavalry versus Indians actioner? That the picture often meanders and is not carpeted with action, is a little moot, but it is well put together, well acted and looks nice with its actual real Bracketville location filming (Ray Rennahan on cinematography).

Although not a masterpiece, this is nevertheless an interesting and highly original western - and I liked it a lot. Below, more of my impressions, with some SPOILERS.

The film begins with a short skirmish between two army scouts, including Chief Scout Ed Bannon (Charlton Heston), and two Apache warriors. This incident is considered as extremely unwelcome by local US Cavalry commanders, as it seems that most of Apache tribes are now looking for a peace agreement. Local settlers are weary of years of war and are ready to go to great lengths to finish the conflict.

In fact, mixed blood half-Apaches, like a smoking hot girl named Nita (Katy Jurado) and her brother Spanish (Peter Coe) live already amongst the whites. Some young Apaches went also to white man schools to be educated and help build bridges between communities. The greatest hope for everybody in those lands is Toriano (Jack Palance), a very gifted and charismatic young man, son of an influent Apache chief, who obtained a scholarship and went to the college in East. Having recently graduated he is now due to come back, to the greatest joy of his fellow tribesmen but also many whites, many of whom were raised together with him (one of them is even his blood brother)...

But there is a shadow on this idyllic picture. Chief Scout Ed Bannon doesn't buy it all. He believes that this whole recent period of calm is just silence before the storm and all gestures of good will shown by Apaches are just a game. Bannon claims that Apaches are in fact preparing a major rebellion, one which will unite more tribes than ever before - and he even believes that fully assimilated and well educated (in fact better educated than Bannon himself) Toriano is the brain behind all this master plan...

Ed Bannon (Charlton Heston) is cavalry scout and does not trust apache. Toriano (Jack Palance) returns from East after education to join his tribe. Bannon thinks that Toriano has returned for a reason and tries to warn Brian Keith, the cavalry leader.
Then toriano starts his burning and killing. Bannon , having lived amongst apache, knows Toriano's ways and may save the cavalry. Will the apache follow Toriano? What will Bannon do?
Excellent action, story, direction and photography.
Watch and ENJOY.(Suki, ENGLAND,UK)

A little disapointed in this one .\\\\although it has all the incredients for a first class western. Too much talk and not enough action.Picture crystal clear and good sound>Chalton Heston and Brian Keith are good, but once again as in most of her movies Katy Durando steals every seen she is in. Good all round western but not great. Still I would recemmend it.

Arrived after seven days from the US. This one will only play on my computer after changing the region to 1. Am not a great Charlton Heston fan but had to have this western in my collection. Picture and sound is good so for the price who can complain.
