The Most Powerful Weapon is Courage.
Tom jeffords tries to make peace between settlers and apaches.

"...takes, and deserves, the credit for making Indians appear as human beings. A monumental Western.  Henrik Sylow, DVD Beaver
"...dramatic and didactic.  Sanderson Beck, Movie Mirrors

Editor's Note
Interesting depiction of relations with the Indians in the frontier West focuses on the relationship between cavalry scout Stewart and Apache chief Cochise (Chandler). The scout's attempts to head off an Indian war are complicated by his love affair with an Indian woman.

Uncut
"Among the first in the genre to treat Indians sympathetically and authentically, it then pulls its final punch." 04/01/2005 p.142

DVD Times 8 of 10
"Broken Arrow has earned its place in cinema history as the first mainstream Hollywood Western to treat Native Americans as something beyond mere rifle fodder. More importantly, it's a film fully aware of its own significance and uses this knowledge with which to form its plot...Broken Arrow was made at a time when Hollywood was engaging in a number of problematic themes, such as anti-Semitism in Crossfire and Gentlemen's Agreement. Yet a number of these pictures also had ulterior motives so to speak, with these two efforts, for example, also tackling, in a roundabout manner, homosexuality. From this perspective then, Broken Arrow is as much a plea against racism as a whole as it is an atonement for the Western's previous treatment of Native Americans." - Anthony Nield
