Description by OLDIES.com:
Goldminers instigate war with the Apaches just as Civil War breaks out.
WAR DRUMS manages to be pro-Indian, pro-Mexican, pro-tolerance and pro-feminist without ever resorting to speechmaking or sacrificing its entertainment value. Former Tarzan Lex Barker stars as an Apache chief who is almost ostracized by his tribe when he marries Mexican girl Joan Taylor. Eventually, Barker is welcomed back, but Joan refuses to behave like a typical dutiful squaw. In deference to his wife's wishes, Barker trains Joan to become an Apache warrior! It is curious that the Political Correctness crowd has never paid homage to WAR DRUMS; perhaps it's because of the film's surfeit of decidedly non-PC violence and bloodshed.
