Product Description

Set in Texas, ARROWHEAD stars Charlton Heston as Chief of Scouts Ed Bannon, an arrogant man raised by Apache who hates them with a vengeance. When the new Apache chief, Toriano, returns to his people after schooling in the Eastern U.S., Bannon senses the man isn't trustworthy and does not believe the Apaches will uphold the peace plan they have agreed to. With the U.S. Army anxious to send the Apaches to a reservation in Florida, they hope Bannon will not interfere.

From the Back Cover

Apache brave Toriano has returned to his people after schooling in the Eastern U.S. "He comes in peace," say cavalry officers and townsfolk. "He comes for war," says cavalry scout Ed Bannon. Raised by Apaches, Bannon knows the prophecies about a warrior who will come from the East to lead the tribe into battle. But by the time he convinces anyone of the danger, it may be too late.

Charlton Heston (as Bannon) and Jack Palance (as Toriano) square off in "Arrowhead," an exciting saga directed by "Gunsmoke" and "Rawhide" creator Charles Marquis Warren--and packed with the hell-bent-for-leather bravado of the Technicolor West.

Any film with Jack Palance as the villain is intense and strong... This great actor is unique and classic in this respect!

His order to his braves: 'There will be no more fighting until Bannon has met Toriano!,' marks a summary of the entire motion picture: Toriano against Bannon!

But who are these two men?

Ed Bannon (Charlton Heston) is the Chief of Scouts for U.S armed forces fighting Apaches in the post Civil War... He despises Apaches: 'Anything Toriano for, I'm against!'

Toriano (Jack Palance) is the son of the Old Apache Chief Chattez (Frank Dekova). He rejects permanent confinement and refuses to accept how his warriors are gathered like cattle in their reservation...

Apache Wars were among the fiercest fought on the frontier... The U.S government attempted to limit their territories and movements...

In the film we learn that an Indian cannot touch, harm or kill a man if he comes unarmed into their encampment; an Apache leader can be mystified through the Great Spirit by ritual drum beat; when an Indian and a white man are blood brothers, the only way to break the bound was for one of the two to die-- This explains why Toriano and Bannon assigned the time and place to meet in a single combat to death at the end of the picture...

The pretty Katy Jurado is Bannon's lover, a young girl, half Indian, half Mexican, who admires Toriano as a true leader...Wanting to serve him, she keeps an eye on Bannon, spying all his moves...

Shot in Technicolor, with good directing and strong supporting cast (Brian Keith in his film debut), "Arrowhead," overcomes as a good-looking Western by the excellent acting of its stars...

This review is for the 2013 Warner Bros. release of Paramount's, Arrowhead. There isn't much difference between the Warner release and the original Paramount release. To sum it up, Warner didn't release it as their own, but to re-release for they were out of print. The only difference is on the barcode in which it says, "Distributed by Warner Home Video."

This movie is presented in Full frame, color and runs for about 105mins (1hr and 45mins). This movie stars; Charlton Heston, Jack Palance, Katy Jurado, Brian Keith, Mary Sinclair, Robert J. Wilke and was Directed by, Charles Marquis Warren.

Overall this is a great Western and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to add to their collection.

This movie was good if you like westerns and just look at it as another western with two classic actors.

The history of the Apache wars and Al Sieber (the character Banyon) was quite different and this was a complete joke as far as those aspects,, on all accounts!
The character of toriano? Played by Jack Palance was I think, suppose to represent someone like Geronimo. Not even close,, and no apache would go east to school and come back as a full fledged warrior on return, with long hair,,laughs!. The only Chiricahua apaches that went east were sent there in a boxcar, to florida and oklahoma prisons, and died there. There was no "Ghost Dance" with the apache people,,, that was Lakota and other's. There were similar beliefs of ancestors returning but it wasn't called the ghost dance, which was started by a piute man named Wovoka! In the movie one of the officers scolded Banyon (Al Sieber) for not fighting at Gettysburg and wearing confederate pants. Al Sieber who was a german immigrant "did fight at gettysburg" and with the north! Al Sieber WAS NOT raised by apaches at all! He learned how to be a superb scout through other scouts and personal experience. He had sort of a love hate relationship with the scouts under him particularly "The apache Kid" who he took under his wing as a young man, but later turned on and made false testimony against! The Apache people were superb guerilla fighters and trackers and an awesome people whose lands were taken and who suffered many injustices at the hands of the white eyes, blue coats, and miners, as well as the general white population.

Although not a masterpiece, this is nevertheless an interesting and highly original western - and I liked it a lot. Below, more of my impressions, with some SPOILERS.

The film begins with a short skirmish between two army scouts, including Chief Scout Ed Bannon (Charlton Heston), and two Apache warriors. This incident is considered as extremely unwelcome by local US Cavalry commanders, as it seems that most of Apache tribes are now looking for a peaceful settlement. Local settlers are weary of years of war and are ready to go to great lengths to achieve peace.

In fact, mixed blood half-Apaches, like a smoking hot girl named Nita (Katy Jurado) and her brother Spanish (Peter Coe) live already amongst the whites. Some young Apaches went also to white man schools to be educated and help build bridges between communities. The greatest hope for everybody in those lands is Toriano (Jack Palance), a very gifted and charismatic young man, son of an influent Apache chief, who obtained a scholarship and went to the college in East. Having recently graduated he is now due to come back, to the greatest joy of his fellow tribesmen but also many whites, many of whom were raised together with him (one of them is even his blood brother)...

But there is a shadow on this idyllic picture. Chief Scout Ed Bannon doesn't buy it all. He believes that this whole recent period of calm is just silence before the storm and all gestures of good will shown by Apaches are just a game. Bannon claims that Apaches are in fact preparing a major rebellion, one which will unite more tribes than ever before - and he even believes that fully assimilated and well educated (in fact better educated than Bannon himself) Toriano is the brain behind all this master plan...
