When a stagecoach is attacked by Apaches the passengers take refuge at a stage station. Unknown to the other passengers is the fact that Driscoll has with him a fortune secreted away with his other belongings. At the stage station is Major Steve Loman who was sent to prison by Driscoll years before so he could obtain his mining claims. The apaches continue their assault on the station. With stress mounting and tempers flaring a secret is divulged: Judge Driscoll is responsible for the death of Ruth’s first husband. The embittered passengers must put aside their differences and feelings to battle for their lives. Once the Apaches have been defeated they can again square accounts and battler each other.

  1. I still have this on VHS, I think. Got it off the TV many years ago. Lots of familiar faces, nice music theme. Maybe two stars out of four on the SW scale.

  2. "Apachin Raivo" is the film's Finnish title, not Swedish.

  3. Thanks Smjango, correction made.
