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.
