Ulzana’s Raid
Robert Aldrich, 1972
USA | Format: 35mm | 103 minutes

Two decades after Apache, Lancaster and Robert Aldrich reunited for a darker and more complex meditation on the Indian wars. Lancaster is an aging scout tracking a renegade Apache (Joaquin Martinez), a vicious killer carrying out horrific depradations against white settlers. Alan Sharp’s brilliant and tough-minded screenplay disdains the kneejerk sentimentality of its era by making Ulzana a truly terrifying figure and finding historical justice in his doomed, murderous campaign. A great and brave Western, a high point for both Lancaster and Aldrich.
