The Battle at Apache Pass is a classic western film from 1952. The film was written by Gerald Drayson Adams (Dead Reckoning, The Big Steal, His Kind of Woman, The Black Sleep) and directed by George Sherman (The Sleeping City, Tomahawk). The movie is based on real events, but is entirely fictional. It combines the events of The Bascom Affair and the Battle of Apache Pass, which both took place circa 1861. After years of political unrest and battles regarding territories, Major Jim Colton (John Lund) and an Apache chief named Cochise (Jeff Chandler) reach a peace agreement. Colton looks forward to making amends with the Apache indian tribes. But things get ugly when a rebellious agent named Neil Baylor (Bruce Cowling) devises a plan to exterminate all things Indian. Colton, enraged, faces officers and contests the Indian-removal program. Meanwhile, Cochise is left to deal with an unyielding man named Geronimo (Jay Silverheels). The movie coalesces into an ultimate showdown between both parties otherwise known as the Apache Pass. The Battle at Apache Pass is a thrilling western classic you do not want to miss!moreless
