Plot[edit] Three years after the end of the Apache Wars, peacemaking chief Cochise
dies. His elder son Taza (Rock Hudson) shares his ideas, but brother Naiche
(Bart Roberts) yearns for war...and for Taza's betrothed, Oona (Barbara Rush). Naiche
loses no time in starting trouble which, thanks to a bigoted cavalry officer, ends with the proud Chiricahua
Apaches on a reservation, where they are soon joined by the captured renegade Geronimo, who is all it takes to start a war. Cast[edit]
