Corman ("Gunslinger"/"The Intruder"/"The
Masque of the Red Death") directs this average
western. It offers PC social
comments about racial bias. Lou Rusoff writes
small Arizona town, the government agent Rex Moffet (Lloyd
Bridges) investigates a string of deadly
robberies. Apaches from the nearby peaceful
reservation are the prime suspects, and receive the
enmity from the white locals.
Taylor plays the half-breed that Bridges falls for.
Lance Fuller plays Taylor's demented college-educated
brother, who is the mastermind of a white gang behind
