Chato's Land is a 1972 American Western directed by Michael Winner and starring Charles Brosnon, Jack Palance, and James Whitmore. The film tells the story of Chato (Bronson), a half Apache who kills a local sheriff during a raid on a saloon. He is accused of trespassing in a saloon meant for all-whites. When Chato flees, a confederate officer then gathers a mob to hunt Chat down. Chato leads the mob into the Apache wilderness, hoping to lose them. Knowing the land gives Chato the upper hand, and he is able to drain their water supply and set their horses free. When the mobsters retaliate by killing Chato's woman, his revenge becomes serious. Slowly he kills off each member of the mob, as the hunted becomes the hunter. Chato's Land was not well received by critics.
