Quotes from

Tom Jeffords: When the Indian wishes to signal his brother, he does so by smoke sign. This is the white man's signal. My brothers far away can look at this and understand my meaning. We call this mail. And the men who carry the mail are like the air that carries the Apache smoke signals.

Cochise: To talk of peace is not hard. To live it is very hard.

Cochise: I break the arrow. I will try the way of peace.

Facts about

The movie's world premiere was held in the Nusho Theater in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma.
The film was considered groundbreaking at the time because it portrayed the Native American Indians in a humane light, something that had scarcely happened since silent days. However, years later the film was heavily criticized because the Indians were still played by white actors.
Filmed in 1949 but released after Stewart's next western, Winchester '73.
