It's 1876 and all the Indians are at peace except the Comanches lead by Black Cloud. When Black Cloud wipes out a town, only six soldiers are left and they head for the nearest fort.

Pinned down by Black Cloud they send an Indian boy who was Black Cloud's prisoner on to the fort while they try to bargain with Black Cloud whom they learn is without water.Written by

Battle footage from Last of the Comanches (1953) was used in director William Castle's The Gun That Won the West (1955). See more »
When Sergeant Trainor goes to talk to Black Cloud and the other Indian leaders, he passes the body of a dead Indian lying with its head towards the Mission walls. While he is talking to the Indian leaders, some Indian warriors collect this body, which is now lying with its head away from the Mission. See more »
Fair western, but the plot was identical to the 1943 Humphrey Bogart movie Sahara. That made it predictable to me. Lloyd Bridges must have liked the plot because he was in both movies and got killed in both movies. Broderick Crawford, a fine actor was his old self, barking orders through all of the movie. Calvary came to the rescue at the last moment, just what we like to see. Also you can see a very young Martin Milner later on Adam-12.
