"Geronimo" (1962) is in the same philosophical line as "Broken Arrow" (1952), that is to say: presenting the Apaches as human beings, not as blood-thirsty savages. Certainly the present film is not a Classic as the other one, but delivers the same message loud and clear.

As I always say do not expect a history lesson. It is a movie based on historical facts but retelling them in a cinematic style.

The real Geronimo was the last Apache leader to revolt against forced reservation's residence. He conducted a small party of warriors and women that flee San Carlos' reservation and took refuge in Mexico. USA and Mexican Armies joined to destroy this elusive band and put around 5,000 men in the field. At last Geronimo surrendered and was imprisoned in Florida; afterwards he was removed to Oklahoma where he remained a prisoner of war until his death.

The present film follows loosely these facts from the escape till the surrender. Apaches are presented as rather ruthless but just according to their own codes. Malingered by greedy white men they react with violence and break free. In the final showdown their only option is surrender or be extinct.

This movie was obviously profiting from the success of the TV series "The Rifleman" whose main character was fleshed by Chuck Connors. The director Arnold Laven has directed and produced some of the series' episodes. Many of the supporting characters had also performed there as Enyd Jaynes, John Anderson and Joe Higgins.

Connors delivers a forceful if wooden performance giving his Geronimo an epic allure. Kamala Devi (who will marry Connors in real life) features a beautiful and independent woman falling in love with Geronimo but not yielding her convictions.

Ross Martin as Mangus is very good supporting character.

A good movie to be enjoyed by western and action film fans.

Geronimo, 1962 film

In 1883 the Apache band under Geronimo surrendered to the US Army. They had been attacked by the governments of Mexico and America. We see Geronimo capturing a wild horse for his son. This treaty made the Apaches give up all their lands, in return they will live on a reservation where they will get individual plots of land and food for the rest of their lives as long as they live in peace. The Government will take care of everything. The Apaches must give up their horses, they will till the land and not raid others tribes. They must learn new rules of behavior. But a big rancher wants 50,000 acres of their land to raise cattle (about 78 square miles). They make a deal - in writing. Will the Apaches be swindled? They learn the truth (Mangus can read). The Apache band will return to Mexico. Their arms buried in the ground are recovered. They will declare war on the US. Can they win? Yes, if they continue to fight until the American people become aware of their grievances. Geronimo takes a wife, she can read books.

A wagon train is attacked by Apaches for food and supplies. The Mexican and US armies are on their trail. Where are they hiding? The war attracts notice in the press. What was going on? The army locates Geronimo's band. They will bring a cannon to use against the Apaches. A US Senator travels there to tell Geronimo they want a peaceful solution. The new President was a change from previous administration policy. Geronimo will accept this peaceful solution, and return to the reservation.

You will learn more from a good history book than this low-budget dramatization. Most prior movies about the 19th century Indian Wars were less even-sided. I think there was a similar movie made in the early 1950s.

Chuck Connors stars as Geronimo. Who leads the Apache off of the reservation into high adventure. I have seen this many times over the years and when I saw this being released to DVD I knew that
I had to get it. This DVD does not disappoint. Good video transfer. They don't make movies like this anymore.
