"...One of the Holy Grail video titles -- a box office hit that pops up on every consumer wish-list....[Page] got a supporting Oscar nomination in her screen debut here..."
Based on the Louis L'Amour story "The Gift of Cochise," this sparkling western has Wayne as a half-Indian Cavalry scout who, with his feral dog companion, finds a young woman and her son living on a isolated ranch in unfriendly Apache country. A poetic and exciting script, outstanding performances, and breathtaking scenery make this an indisputable classic.
