Robert Young portrays fair-minded Dan Craig, whose arrival in Arizona Territory's San Remo puts him at odds with conspirators eager to ignite an Apache uprising and thereby lay claim to gold-rich reservation land.
The Western became a staple of filmmaking as far back as 1903's The Great Train Robbery, but it took some 50 years for the industry at large to provide films sympathetic to Native Americans - via works such as Broken Arrow, Devil's Doorway and this Technicolor tale of The Half-Breed. Robert Young portrays fair-minded Dan Craig, whose arrival in Arizona Territory's San Remo puts him at odds with conspirators eager to ignite an Apache uprising and thereby lay claim to gold-rich reservation land. Jack Buetel (Billy the Kid in The Outlaw) plays the title role in this lively powder keg of a movie filmed in part amid the craggy red spires of Sedona.
A debonair gambler who is sympathetic to the cause of a half-breed Apache, helps him with his crusade to stop bloodshed.
