Captain Apache is a western movie from 1971, directed by Alexander Singer and starring Lee Van Cleef, Carroll Baker, and Stuart Whitman. The film tells the story of Captain Apache, a Native American lieutenant in the U.S. Army who is tasked with investigating the murder of a local Indian agent in a small town. As Captain Apache begins to investigate the case, he realizes that the murder is just a small part of a larger conspiracy involving powerful businessmen and corrupt officials.

Throughout the movie, Captain Apache encounters a range of characters, including a beautiful and mysterious woman named Maude (played by Carroll Baker) and a group of renegade Indians who are determined to restore the honor of their people. Along the way, he has to navigate a web of lies and deceit, confront his own prejudices and biases, and use all of his skills as a soldier to uncover the truth.

Lee Van Cleef delivers a strong performance as Captain Apache, bringing a sense of gravitas and authority to the role. He is a stoic and disciplined character, who is determined to uncover the truth no matter what obstacles he may face. While he initially harbors some reservations about working with Maude, he eventually comes to trust her and relies on her help throughout the investigation.

Carroll Baker is also excellent as Maude, portraying her as a complex and mysterious character who is both alluring and dangerous. She has a strong presence on screen and plays off of Van Cleef's performance well, creating a compelling dynamic between their two characters.

Stuart Whitman plays Griffin, the main antagonist of the movie who is behind the conspiracy to cover up the murder of the Indian agent. He is a ruthless and cunning businessman who will stop at nothing to protect his interests, and Whitman plays the character with a sense of smug self-satisfaction that makes him all the more despicable.

The movie features some great action sequences, including a high-speed horseback chase and a tense shootout in a small town. The cinematography is also excellent, with sweeping vistas of the western landscape and a sense of atmosphere and mood that perfectly captures the tone of the film.

Overall, Captain Apache is a solid western movie that delivers on both action and drama. With a strong cast and a compelling story, it is sure to entertain fans of the genre and anyone looking for an engrossing movie experience.

Captain Apache is a 1971 action movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 29 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 4.7.
