      User Review
      6 January 2009 | by JoeytheBrit Chuck Connors must have been selected for the role of Geronimo
      because of his powerful physique and his air of vitality and strength which encapsulated
      the vigour and nobility of the native Indian, while that thin, scowling gash of a mouth and hooded eyes
      lent an air of menace in keeping with the film's ambiguous portrayal of the renegade Indian
      who launched his own war against the United States with only a handful of men.
      Most of the whites – with the exception of one cavalry officer
      (a pre-Batman Adam West) – are pretty villainous here, selling out the Indians to make a quick buck,
      and yet the film seems to shy away from the obvious opportunities for Geronimo
      to be portrayed as an out-and-out hero.
      The film's OK, although a little light on action sequences
      considering the subject matter, and is generally sympathetic towards the Indians.
      The cinematography is terrific and good use is made of the rugged locations.

      I always liked this movie, even though, it was far from being historically accurate. Chuck Connors in an western is always a treat. I guess it's ironic that his co-star, soon to be wife, Kamala Devi, was an Eastern Indian playing a Western Indian. She was nice to look at, too.
