    John Wayne and Maureen O`Hara are embroiled in an epic battle with the Apaches and each other in this John Ford classic.

    When the American civil war ended, attention turned towards the Apaches in the south-west. Officer Kirby York (Wayne) runs an outpost on the Rio Grande, in charge of training new recruits. One of the young trainess turns out to be his son, whom he had not seen for 15 years.
    Yorke`s ex-wife and mother of his son arrives to take the young trooper away from the danger of a battle. Yorke junior decides to stay and fight with his father. It`s not long before Kirby abd his ex-wide (O`Hara) begin to fall back in love and decide to try again kicking off a whole series of love triangles set against the backdrop of taming the wild west.

    The circumstances, however, take a turn for the worse, when an unorthodox plan devised by Officer Kirby, in order to outwit the Apaches, backfires and he finds himself up for court martial.

    The scene is set superbly when he then has to clear his name and protect the lives of his recently reunited family.
