Info

John Russell, an Apache-raised white man, returns to the white world to claim his father’s inheritance, a gold watch and a run-down boarding house. Looking like an Apache, Russell encounters prejudice and violence from the townspeople. Russell decides to leave  on the stagecoach. Sharing the stagecoach are   Professor Alexander Favor, his wife Audra, and the unsavory Cicero Grimes. Grimes is aware  Favor is carrying money he stole from the Apaches. Grimes and his gang hold up the stagecoach.  After  one of the bandits, carrying the money in his saddle bag, is killed by Russell, Grimes rides off snatching Audra as his hostage. Grimes offers to release Audra if Russell returns the money. Russell struggles with questions of morality and conscience. Should money stolen from the Apaches be returned to the thief or should Russell return the money to the Apaches and allow Grimes to kill Audra?
