The plot is not very heavy as most old westerns are concerned. If you are looking for traditional viewing pleasure, this isn't a chart topper. Ambush at Cimarron Pass is a story which takes place a few years after the Civil War in The West. A group of US soldiers in the west find themselves under the attack of a similar sized group of ex-confederate soldiers. They band together to survive a few bad apples and a clever tribe of Apaches. While the plot isn't exactly riveting, the age of this movie makes it a treat.The number one draw to this movie is the young Clint Eastwood. Acting in a supporting role is a surprise itself, but here he plays a soldier that is put in his place multiple times. I have to admit, there were a few first-times for me when watching him in this movie. I can't recall any other movies where he a) gets knocked down with a shove or single punch and b) where he isn't the strong lead role. It's entertaining to see him in his tall and lanky days. The film production and editing can hold your interest if you pay attention to the details. This was recorded partially in studio, so the camp scenes use painted western backgrounds. You can also hear the echo of the studio when they are in this setting. When filming outdoors, there is little ambient noise and the sound effects are hilarious. Every scene with walking horses had me rolling on the floor with laughter. Half a dozen horses walking on sand and stone sounds like a couple of 2x4's being scuffed against the ground. Same goes for the actors movements as well. The gun fights are a little less distracting though. If you have an hour and twenty minutes to burn on some old Clint Eastwood with antiquated film techniques, enjoy this old fashioned western.

Sorry, Clint Eastwood, but this low-budget oater from 20th Century Fox's Regal subsidiary is far from "the lousiest western ever made." In fact, it's a decent little western with interesting (if stock) characters that builds to a suspenseful, well-directed conclusion. Scott Brady is a solid, stoic lesder of a small band of cavalry survivors and a few other assorted settlers (Eastwood among them, in his first western outing, as a young Georgia hothead who can't put the Civil War behind him). The Apaches want the dozens of repeater rifles our cavalry guys saved from a raid that decimated Brady's squadron. When their horses are scared off by the Indians, there's no alternative to a 100-mile-plus hike across the desert to a secure Army fort--a nice setup for tense movement through well-photographed scenery. Some reviewers complained about the movie's slow pace, but seemed to me that it moved along crisply, propelled by the inevitable conflicts the characters experience. Eastwood displays strong hints of the charismatic actor he became. The weakest cast member is Margia Dean, as a fetching señorita the Apaches literally toss into the mix. She looks good, but is visibly too old for the role (which is poorly written anyway). I'll give her credit, though, for making sure that peasant blouse exposes one shoulder throughout the trek. I loved the movie's abrupt, clean end. It made its point and moved on. Loved the sound work too, especially during the climatic ambush when the tables are turned on the Apaches.

The only reason I watched this film is because my uncle is one of the characters (Cobb).
As far as the film itself, it's truly lacking in substance. Paraphrasing Clint Eastwood, it's one of the lousiest westerns ever made.
My reasons for watching it are strictly personal and I intend go buy the DVD.

Ambush at Cimaron Pass didn't move quickly enough for my Guests. They prefer more action and for the action to be rapidly moving. Otherwise, the movie had convincing, professional Actors such as Clint Eastwood, Scott Brady, and Broderick Crawford. For those who appreciate black and white films with lovely landscape shooting, this is a good movie. Go for it, but understand it does move more slowly than other Westerns.

I was really disappointed - there were options for how the movie could play out, but the move just screeched to an end. It was kind of like the director thought, "I'm almost out of film, let's end it..."

The plotting is pretty solid, though with some plot holes and odd motivations here and there. The ending was a little strange, and the theme of friendship wasn't conveyed as well as it could've been. It was nice to see a young Clint Eastwood in one of his first b-westerns, though my mind rebelled against him not being a hero (or anti-hero, for that matter). That changed as the movie went on. Despite what critics may say, this isn't a bad western, but not a particularly good one. As much as they pumped them out back in the day, you were going to have a lot of mediocre entries into the genre, and this is just one of them.

"All Yankees lie!" I was tempted to give a fourth star just for that line.
