    An intriguing, exciting Western that's can easily have been called the '60's version of "Stagecoach." Newman is a brooding Indian policeman whose tasked of escorting passengers of a stagecoach hold up back to civilization, even if some of the passengers are prejudiced against him. The social-message associated with the film carries some relevance today, but was more major with '60's audiences, but that theme makes for great tension. An excellent Western with great acting from Newman, Balsam, Boone, Cilento and March. I give it a 4.5/5.

  • Good indians, bad white men.

    An enjoyable movie. Richard Boone makes the movie as an excellent villain. I do wish that they would have toned down the "White men are bad" propaganda it is totally unnecessary.

  • A welcome change

    While in college in the early 1970's, I watched this movie for the first time and was dismayed by the ending because Paul Newman sacrificed his life for a bunch of bigots. As a minority, I related to the sting of prejudice that Newman's character faced and said to myself that if that were me, I wouldn't have lifted a finger to help them. I was young then and as time marches on, you begin to see things in a different light. John Russell, while being gruff, bitter and digusted at the treatment of his fellow Apaches, by his last act, he was trying to find his humanity. This movie is such a welcome change from the "run of the mill" westerns that I watched as a kid.Finally, some realism was added about how things were in the west in the late 1800's. You see how a race virtually on the edge of genocide, is thought of by the so-called Christians and purveyors of "manifest destiny"You see how dignity is stripped. I applaud this film as one of first westerns to deal with issues from a realistic point of view. Thanks to a marvelous cast and Martin Ritt's direction, it appealed to my sense of what it's like to be a minority American. Although Newman's portrayal of John Russell is somewhat subdued, it's effective. Russell sacrified his life for people who under ordinary circumstances would not have given him "the time of day" and considering the alternative of living in such world, maybe he was saying "to hell with it, dying is better than this!"

    It is certainly a well made film. The cinematography is excellent, good cast although Newman is not the best choice for the role. I also found the film very slow moving, but the wel written screenplay was a plus. Unimpressive period detail.
