Plot

An ex- Confederate Army officer (Boone) revenging himself against Apache Indians who have massacred his family recovers a stolen U.S. Army repeating rifle off some Apaches he has killed. The U.S. Army arrests him, offering him his freedom if he leads a small clandestine scouting unit into Mexico consisting of an Army Captain (Whitman), a Buffalo Soldier sergeant (Brown), a knife wieding Mexican prisoner, and later an Apache woman warrior (Wende Wagner). After blasting their way through bandits and Apaches they discover another former Confederate (O'Brien) has set up a new Confederate headquarters.

Huffaker's novel is reminiscent of both John Wayne's "The Comancheros" of which he co-wrote the screenplay and "The Searchers". The only female role, Wagner in a black wig has no English dialogue but is highly convincing as are all the cast. "Rio Conchos" was filmed in Moab, Utah though the Conchos River and most of the action of the film takes place in Mexico
