A West Point grad (George Niese) freshly assigned to run a fort deep within Apache territory finds himself all too quickly overwhelmed by the responsibility, as his reconnaissance patrol's horses are stolen and the outpost's troops slaughtered in his absence. A grizzled sergeant (Chuck Connors) wrests away command, knowing that court-martial awaits should their slim chances at survival pan out. John Smith, Susan Cummings, Harry Dean Stanton co-star. 62 min. Standard; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital mono.
