Editorial Reviews

Jeff Preston (Audie Murphy), commander of an Arizona cavalry outpost, hates the Apaches and battles them fiercely--until his attitude is softened by romance with part-Indian missionary Linda (NIGHT TIDE) Lawson. But the presence of gold on Indian land, and the depredations of greedy whites, stirs the already boiling pot in this exciting Western from the king of action directors, the legendary William Witney. Bonus Features: Trailers, Apache Rifles Still Gallery, Museum of Lone Pine Film History: A Retrospective - A discussion with historian Chris Langley regarding the museums history, Cut to the Chase: Remembering William Witney - A documentary excerpt featuring actor Michael Dante, Please, Hold the Spaghetti: Apache Rifles and the End of the Conventional Western - An all-new documentary featuring EXCLUSIVE interviews with actor Michael Dante, western film historian/screenwriter C. Courtney Joyner and Lone Pine Museum historian Chris Langley.

20th Century Fox and Kit Parker Films presents "APACHE RIFLES" (26 November 1964) (92 mins/Color) (Fully Restored/Dolby Digitally Remastered) -- The army commander of an Arizona outpost, Capt. Jeff Stanton (Audie Murphy) despises all Indians until he falls in love with a beautiful missionary girl, Dawn Gillis (Linda Dawson) --- Murphy must change his ways because one of her parents is an Native American --- Murphy's attempts to reform, are unfortunately nearly crushed by greedy gold-seekers, one of them is L.Q. Jones (favorite character actor of mine) is trying to start a war with the local Apaches.

VCI gives us a clean & clear copy with many bonus and extras in this special release --- Another excellent collaboration between Murphy and the great action director William Witney --- A treat for Murphy fans!

I'm a fan of the old fashioned Western movies of the 1950's- 1970's era and Apache Rifles is no exception. Audie Murphy stars as a Calvary Captain sent out to deal with a Apache Indian rebellion. The transfer is pretty good considering a 1964 movie but there are a few spots in the movie where the transfer suffers, but only briefly. If you're a fan of old fashioned Calvary versus Indians movie's like I am then you should add this one to your collection. Movie studios should release more of these old movies as there are plenty that haven't been released to DVD yet.

The above line is actually uttered by James Coburn in Sam Peckinpah's PAT GARRETT & BILLY THE KID, however it seems more than appropriate in describing this Audie Murphy oater. Made at the same time as Sergio Leone's A FISTFUL OF DOLLARS, APACHE RIFLES is definately a throwback to 1950's American Westerns, not that that's a bad thing, it's just that times have definately changed, perhaps not for the overall good, but changed they did. And this "old" style of Hollywood Western is about to morph into something far more cynical, with less emphasis on moral values and entering houses justified. The anti-hero has just been given birth and the true "hero" as savior has just been shattered. THE EXORCIST is only a few years away.

Had APACHE RIFLES been made in the 1950's it would have been given a decent budget and high profile director, and most likely would have been an important entry into the genre. This is by no means a criticism toward director William Whitney, who in my opinion was one of the best directors of the 1930's-40's. It's just that he's associated with low budget serial fare even though he could direct circles around the high profilers.

The plot is pretty straight-forward. The Apache have left the reservation because greedy miners led by L.Q. Jones (in one of his great as always roles) have encroached upon their given lands, killing Indians to line their pockets with gold. Nothing new here, but with a bigger budget it could have been. Audie, however, is spot-on as Jeff Preston, cavalry officer given command of the situation. He's hard as nails, a known Indian hater, yet he commands the respect of his troops. He sees the error of his ways and comes over to the Indian's point of view. It's a complex character that Audie handles skillfully.

Within recent years the work of Randolph Scott has been substantially re-evaluated and is now highly treasured by film critics and film buffs, alike (especially with the release of the Budd Boetticher set). Now, it seems, is the time to take another look at the films starring Audie Murphy. Critics and the public esteem NO NAME ON THE BULLET, but his other Western films deserve serious consideration, also. Most of Murphy's Westerns were made with Universal, and they are uniformly good. Several titles are available overseas (in the PAL format), but unfortunately not yet available in the US (NTSC format); let's hope Universal will release them here as well.

Columbia Studios produced several Murphy vehicles towards the end of his career, and of these I think APACHE RIFLES may be one of the best of the lot. It features good acting by Murphy and a solid cast of familiar faces. The action sequences are well-conceived and expertly filmed. Production values are relatively high for such "B" type Westerns. VCI has found an excellent print. So, in sum, this is a welcomed release in all respects. Highly recommended, and thanks VCI.
