Ambush at Tomahawk Gap
Ambush at Tomahawk Gap is a characteristically brutal program western from Columbia's Wallace MacDonald unit. John Hodiak, John Derek, David Brian and Ray Teal play ex-convicts who ride into a Godforsaken western town. They're on the lookout for the loot that they buried from their last big "job." Before we are treated to the requisite "thieves fall out" scene, Tomahawk Gap is besieged by Apaches. The survivor of the carnage is allowed the usual ride into the sunset with Indian maiden Mary Eleana Marques. Featured in the supporting cast of Ambush at Tomahawk Gap are such old reliable sagebrush standbys as Trevor Bardette, John Doucette and Percy Helton. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

    Western genre


    Four ex-convicts were released from Yuma prison. Their plan was to find the payroll money. There were several skirmishes among themselves, and at the central story they met and made their captive the Navajo woman. At the final story, the Apaches surrounded them at an abandoned town, and the two characters were the survivors: John Derek (from 10 Commandments fame) and Maria Elena Marqués. Good movie. —Edgardo Valentino D. Olaes

    Four convicts released from prison go to Tomahawk Gap, where they had buried their stolen money, only to find that it has become a ghost town during their absence. They are unable to leave when Apaches surround the town, trapping them. Good cast. Taken from a good print.
