Apache by Robert Aldrich( visu )
17 editions published between 1954 and 2011 in English and Spanish and held by 185 libraries worldwide
One of the best and toughest of the fifties cycle of pro-Indian westerns has Lancaster in the role of Massai, the last Apache warrior who is actually based on an historical figure. The film is about Massai's struggle to survive with dignity and self respect. Aldrich's intention was to emphasize the tragedy of the passing of a way of life by having Massai die in the end but the producers imposed a less credible happy ending. Aldrich's Ulzana's Raid (1972) presents an even bleaker picture of the Indian's fate
