Apache is a rare 1954 classic Western adventure that takes the Indian point of view. In the late 1800s, Indian chief Geronimo (Monte Blue) surrenders and his Apache tribe will be shipped to a Florida reservation. One of Geronimo's warriors, Massai (Burt Lancaster), manages to escape the transport train to wage a one-man fight against the white man. He attacks soldiers, wagons or bridges, as he makes his way back to his New Mexico homeland to remind the white man that they haven't won the war yet. While Indian scouts Al Sieber (John McIntire) and Hondo (Charles Bronson) search throughout the region for him, Massai manages to track down his love, Nalinle (Jean Peters). Thanks to the kindness of a Cherokee farmer, Dawson (Morris Ankrum), Massai finds a remote location to make a home and starts a small corn crop. But can he, Nalinle and the child they are expecting remain hidden from the authorities? Director Robert Aldrich ("The Dirty Dozen") based this thoughtful story of the Old West on Paul I. Wellman's novel "Bronco Apache."moreless
