Dragoon Wells Massacre

Dragoon Wells Massacre

Harold Schuster (1957)

A Certificate


Our Score
This brisk, good-looking western from director Harold Schuster benefits greatly from CinemaScope and the camerawork of William Clothier, who also shot The Alamo and Cheyenne Autumn. The plot involving two prisoners being transported to trial through hostile Apache territory is fairly routine, but Barry Sullivan and High Noon's Katy Jurado make the most of their roles (he's a killer, she's a hooker). Dennis O'Keefe and Mona Freeman, both well past their prime, are less interesting.


A cavalry officer is assigned to escort a captured murderer to prison. However, the prisoner and his guard are compelled to join forces to survive when Apache warriors raid their wagon train as it moves across Arizona into hostile territory. Western, starring Barry Sullivan, Dennis O'Keefe, Mona Freeman and Katy Jurado.
