Only one man has the power to stop the war! Screen Legends Kirk Douglas (The Devil’s Disciple) and Walter Matthau (The Laughing Policeman) co-star in this exciting account about a man who made his name fighting Indians, but now must use his peacekeeping skills to keep wronged Sioux warriors from massacring a wagon train and a nearby fort. After the Civil War, Johnny Hawks (Douglas), the Indian Fighter, returns to the West and establishes a treaty with the Sioux Indians. But when renegade frontiersmen seeking a legendary Indian gold mine murder the brother of the Sioux chief, tensions escalate, endangering every man in the territory. The great Andre De Toth (Pitfall) directed this action-packed western featuring a stellar cast that includes Lon Chaney Jr. (Big House, U.S.A.), Elsa Martinelli (The Oldest Profession), Alan Hale Jr. (A Man Alone) and Elisha Cook Jr. (I Wake Up Screaming).
