Arrowhead 1953

NR CC
4.1 out of 5 stars (76) IMDb 6.2/10

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 in 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.

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...

I am drawn to stories based, at least in part, on fact or on the life of a real individual. This is such a story. It is well acted with a strong cast. The characters are powerful at times, which enhances the entertainment aspect of the movie. The action vs. storyline sequences are mixed in such a manner as to keep the film from dragging or being dull at any point. Probably more of a guy's movie, though several of the key actors involve male stars who were quite popular with the ladies at the time this movie was released. Through the years, I've probably viewed this film a half-dozen times, having seen it first while serving with the U.S. Army in Germany a long time ago.

A good, basic western. Never heard of it before but decided to buy it because of the cast & the low price. If you like westerns, you will like this DVD. Both the video & audio were very good, considering that the movie is about 60 yrs old. Sound is monaural and the picture is Full Frame but don't let that discourage you.
