Apache is directed by Robert Aldrich and adapted to screenplay by James R. Webb from the novel "Broncho Apache" written by Paul Wellman. It stars Burt Lancaster, Jean Peters, John McIntire, John Dehner, Charles Bronson and Paul Guilfoyle. Music is by David Raksin and cinematography by Ernest Laszlo.

"This is the story of Massai, the last Apache warrior. It has been told and re-told until it has become one of the great legends of the Southwest. it began in 1886 with Geronimo's surrender."

Apache has problems, undoubtedly, from the casting of overtly bright eyed Americans in the principal Native American roles, to the shift into love story territory, and on to the studio enforced compromised ending, it's a mixed bag for sure. If you can get over these "issues" then there is still a lot to enjoy here.

You're not a warrior any more; you're just a whipped Injun.

Apache follows in the footsteps made by Broken Arrow and Devil's Doorway that saw a shift in how Native Americans were being represented on screen. The story of Massai (Lancaster) is a fascinating one, even if the movie doesn't quite be all that it can be. It shows him as a stoic and complex individual, fiercely determined in a last man standing type of way, while his confusion with the world he no longer understands - or cares to be part of - is expertly realised by Lancaster and Aldrich. One sequence has Massai walk through town observing the alien white man world at work, including Chinese folk busying themselves in a laundry, it's a smart piece of writing, proving that there is intelligence and points of worth in the story.

You are like a dying wolf biting at its own wounds.

The true character on which the film is based is probably more interesting than the film itself. Massai was a Chiricahua Apache who surrendered to US Forces in 1886 together with Geronimo and his small band of warriors. Following this they were all transported East on the railroad for re-settlement. Massai managed to escape during the journey and traveled back West. It was an incredibly long journey that took him over a year, in which he avoided all human contact. He was sought for many years but was never recaptured. His brutal depredations in Old Mexico, New Mexico and Arizona became the stuff of legends. It was said "Massai manifested himself like the dust storm, or the morning mist, a shiver in the air and gone". Frederic Remington that great painter and chronicler of the Old West told his story as heard from a Chief of Scouts in "Massai's Crooked Trail" in 1898. The highest point at the Chiricahua National Monument is called Massai point.

"Apache"(54) is directed by Robert Aldrich. This was his first Western and only his third film. The all American Burt Lancaster plays Massai and the blue eyed Jean Peters plays his squaw Nalinle. Unfortunately at that time Indians were portrayed mainly by white actors. This tends to detract from the pictures of that period. Charles Bronson also appears as an Apache scout for the whites. In the film Massai following his escape finds a spot in the high country where he plants corn given to him by a peaceful Cherokee. Nalinle becomes pregnant and he hopes to see out his days in peace. This of course does not happen and he is pursued to his stronghold.

Massai is portrayed as a noble warrior in the film who only kills stereo typical bad whites who deserve it. The real Massai did not mind too much who he killed!

After reading e few bad reviews on this movie I was reluctant to purchase it but received it as a present. To my surprise I think it is quite good. I won't label it as a classic but realy enjoyed it. The transfer is very well done with a clear picture. The only down point is that on my DVD cover it states that the movie is in a letterbox format just to find out it is actually a full version copy. Still, if you enjoy old westerns about indians, this one is recommended.

Despite fond childhood memories, Apache has dated badly. One of the vogue for pro-Native American westerns during the mid-50s (Broken Arrow, Devil's Doorway, etc), this is definitely one of the lesser offerings despite the promising pairing of a painfully miscast Burt Lancaster and Robert Aldrich, who would make amends some 20 years later with the remarkable Ulzana's Raid. The script is a prime offender here, both simplistic and patronising, offering little for either man to really get their teeth into. There are a few good moments, but the sight of Lancaster and Morris Ankrum in brownface remains the film's lasting image.

MGM/UA's transfer is acceptable, although the colour system used to shoot the film originally has not held up well and leads to a variable look to the film. The original theatrical trailer - bizarrely played as a breaking news report - is included, but the original captions have all been removed for some reason.

Burt Lancaster stars in the leading role as the American blue eyed legand Geronimo in this good western, which is directed by Robert Aldrich. Robert Aldrich was a big director around his time and he is probably best remembered for directing the classic war film "The dirty dozen". He also directed 3 other films with Burt Lancaster, which are "Vera Cruz", "Ulzanas raid" and "Twilights last gleaming". This film also has an interesting cast including Jean Peters, John Mcintire and a young Charles Bronson, who plays Hondo. This film has wonderful colour and settings, but the outdating thing about this film is the idea of the actors having American accents while playing Native Indians. Another thing I didn't understand was that Native Indians were the first people to grow corn, but in the film Burt Lancaster doesn't know what corn is. If you are a fan of Burt Lancaster like me, you will enjoy this colourful western.
