Genre: Western, Tragedy, Suspense

Tagline: One man alone understood the savagery of the early American west from both sides.

Plot: Angered at their mistreatment by whites, a group of renegade Apaches escape from their reservation and embark on a rampage of murder, rape and destruction. A veteran army scout, McIntosh (Bruce Lancaster), and an unseasoned young cavalry officer, DeBuin (Bruce Davison), are assigned to track down the malcontented natives. As Debuin, McIntosh, and their party venture into the unfriendly landscape, issues start to surface about to the morality of their extermination mission. Soon the party of supposedly civil white men are fighting amongst themselves, divided about the task at hand. As much as the moralists struggle, their efforts to stop Ulzana's Raid seem fruitless.

On the heels of DIRTY DOZEN and WHATEVER HAPPENED TO BABY JANE, director Robert Aldrich delivers another smash film. Intelligent and edgy, ULZANA'S RAID features all of the standard Aldrich storytelling techniques: characters full of suppressed madness and prejudices, a moral dilemma, and a loaded gun with a slippery trigger waiting to be squeezed. Add the scorching heat of the desert as a backdrop and Aldrich conjures forth another masterpiece: ULZANA'S RAID.
