Duel at Diablo (1966, James Garner, Sidney Poitier)

Poster for the movie ""
103 min - Action, Western - 15 June 1966
Our rating:

Ralph Nelson's film stars James Garner as an ex-soldier turned loner whose Indian wife has been murdered and scalped by Dennis Weaver, the husband of Bibi Andersson who Garner has rescued from the Apache.

Add in Sidney Poitier as a gunfighter with his own agenda and you have a western that, while retaining all the required action, also subverts and questions racial attitudes.
