posterWestern: USA, der Wilde Westen: Der Texas Ranger Jake Cutter (John Wayne) verhaftet den Spieler Paul Regret (Stuart Whitman), der einen Mord begangen haben soll. Als dieser flüchtet, stellt ihn Cutter in einem Saloon. Auf dem Weg zurück nach Louisiana taucht die gefürchtete "Comancheros"-Bande auf. Die Outlaws liefern Waffen und Alkohol an den Stamm der Comanche und sorgen für Angst und Schrecken. Als Cutter auf einer Ranch von der Bande angegriffen wird, eilt ihm Regret unerwartet zur Hilfe. Gemeinsam mit den Texas Rangers stellen sie sich dem Duell gegen die Outlaws... [BR, 2019] || Michael Curtiz' letzter Film > The Comancheros marked Michael Curtiz's final theatrical motion picture before his death on 10 Apr 1962. According to his 12 Apr 1962 LAT obituary, Curtiz discovered he had cancer during filming, after suffering a broken rib on location in UT. [AFI] * According to a 23 Jun 1961 DV [Daily Variety] production chart, principal photography began on 19 Jun 1961 in Moab, UT. Navajo Indians were hired to portray Comanche Indians, as stated in a 9 Jul 1961 LAT [Los Angeles Times] brief. Producer George Sherman reportedly arranged for the transportation of "an entire tribe of Navajos" from Monument Valley to Moab, and the 27 Jun 1961 DV noted that they spoke their lines in Navajo instead of Comanche. Following location shooting in Moab, filming continued on the Twentieth Century-Fox studio lot in Los Angeles, CA. There, as stated in the 5 Jun 1961 DV, a western village on the studio backlot, previously due to be demolished by bulldozers, was set to be burned during filming. Principal photography ended on 9 Aug 1961, according to a DV item the following day. [AFI Catalog]
