This film demonstrates Richard Widmark at his peak best. A haunting theme tune, sadly not released on it's own merit, plays throughout the film, greatly adding to the tense and violent as well as gentle and tender moments.

Clearly at home in the big outdoors, Widmark gives a superb performance as Commanche Todd - a 'renegade killer' who was captured as a boy and brought up as the son of a Commanche chief.

Later in the film we learn that when his young Indian wife and two sons were brutally killed by four Harper brothers he set out to kill them all. Todd suceeds in killing three of the brothers, but then, suffering from days of thirst and heat exhaustion he is captured by the fourth - Bull Harper. They join up with wagon train heading West, and here the story really begins.

Using his ability to say as much by facial expression and body language as he does via the script, Widmark convincingly leads the young wagon train survivors of an Apache attack, through the arid, hazardous Canyon of Death safely back to civilisation.

On the way, hatred shown to him by some of the youngsters, because of his Indian upbringing, gradually turns to respect as he steers them through the dangers. Equally the humanity shown to him by Jenny (Felicia Farr)and young brother Tommy(Tommy Rettig)turns to love.

If you are a Widmark fan, this film is not to be missed. Or, if you just like an entertaining western with fabulous scenery, a good story and a happy ending, then again - don't miss it.

Great news to see that Optimum releasing Western Classics have released this worthy film onto Region 2 format. The fifties was a halcyon period for the Western. By this time it had been refined to an art form and many fine directors like John Ford, Howard Hawks, Anthony Mann and Budd Boetticher were at their zenith. Competition was fierce and Delmer Daves was considered second tier in comparison. But on this showing he is far from that. He also made the very good "Broken Arrow"(50) and "3:10 to Yuma"(57). The screenplay was written by that prolific writer of Westerns James Edward Grant at the height of his powers. Daves wanted a pristine location to film in and found it in Oak Creek Canyon which does much to aid the fine cinematography. I have read a very similar story by Louis L'Amour, that prolific Western writer. But I have been unable to corroborate if the film is based on this story.

The plot concerns Comanche Todd a half breed scout played by Richard Widmark in what is one of his very best screen roles. Todd has been captured by the brutal Sheriff Bull Harper for murdering his three brothers. What is not made clear is that these brothers had murdered Todds Indian wife and children. The sheriff comes across a wagon train and warns them about marauding Apache. He decides to stay overnight. During the night the wagon train is attacked. The only survivors are a group of teenagers/children who have gone for a midnight swim and Todd who has been thrown over a precipice with a wagon he has been manacled to. Miraculously he is still alive. The fight for survival is on. Todd with his wilderness skills is the only person who can get them all home, but the chances are slim so deep in hostile Apache territory.

Why is this not available in Region 2? Excellent western with plenty of action, well paced with every scene counting. Look out for Widmark killing an eagle with a chain and Apaches with his bare hands. Spectacular cinematography, sparsley but well sketched characters, and a bit of romance. The members of a small waggon train heading through dangerous Apache country pick up a sherrif and his 'murderous' prisoner Commanche Todd (Richard Widmark.) Todd and the younger members of the group survive an Apache attack and they are forced to rely upon Todd to help them survive the Apaches and the unforgiving terrain to reach safety. Can they trust him? As they each learn something about themselves through their ordeal and learn to respect Widmark will they hand him over to the authorities? Some characters are western cliches and the racial elements are not subtle but the movie is very satisfying and Widmark plays the role to perfection. Great soaring score too!

Half the group admire him for his bravery and the other half hate him as an Indian loving murderer.
