||Synopsis: By 1870, there has been 10 years of cruel war between settlers and Cochise's Apaches. Ex-soldier Tom Jeffords saves the life of an Apache boy and starts to wonder if Indians are human, after all; soon, he determines to use this chance to make himself an ambassador. Against all odds, his solitary mission into Cochise's stronghold opens a dialogue. Opportunely, the president sends General Howard with orders to conclude peace. But even with Jeffords's luck, the deep grievance and hatred on both sides make tragic failure all too likely. Written by Rod Crawford <[email protected]>

Although the story is entertaining and the performances of James Stewart,
Jeff Chandler and Debra Paget outstanding, what makes Broken Arrow a
landmark film is its portrayal of the Apache Indians as something more
savage killers. Indians in the movies were always seen as brutal and
inhuman. Here they are seen as people who want what the "white men"
to live in freedom with their families on their own land and to live their
lives in their own way.
Jeff Chandler is terrific as Apache leader Cochise, who he would play
more in other films. There is a moving scene when they return from battle
and he recites the names of those killed with a pained look in his eyes.
Cochise and Stewart's character have a relationship which grows from
respect to a true friendship as they try to work out peace between the
whites and indians. Stewart is looked on as a traitor by his friends and
things are complicated further by his relationship with the young Apache
girl played by Debra Paget.
I cannot think of another western in which indians have been portrayed as
real people with emotions who hurt, who love. When this film was released
years ago, blacks, asians and American Indians were still being portrayed
using the worst kinds of racial stereotypes.
