Geronimo: An American Legend

Rating:PG-13
Release Date:January 1, 1993
Running time:115 minutes
Cast:Gene Hackman, Robert Duvall
Director:Walter Hill

Description: Walter Hill directs John Milius's script (co-written by Larry Gross) depicting a revisionist perspective on the Geronimo Campaign and how Geronimo, with 34 men, managed to elude 5000 U.S. cavalry men between 1885 and 1886 before his surrender at the Canyon of the Skeletons in September 1886. The film centers upon Charles Gatewood (Jason Patric), the U.S. Cavalry lieutenant who is charged with capturing the elusive Apache leader. Gatewood is torn by a grudging respect for Geronimo and his people and his duty to his country. But then all the white men in the film have a respect for Geronimo, even as they are trying to hunt him down and kill him. General Charles Crook (Gene Hackman), charged with overseeing the forced settlement of the Apaches on reservations, has nothing but admiration for Geronimo.~ Paul Brenner, All Movie Guide
