Geronimo: An American Legend (1993), directed by the great Walter Hill (The DriverThe Long Riders) and written by John Milius (Conan The Barbarian) and Larry Gross from a story by Milius, focuses on the eponymous Apache leader, one of the great strategists and last holdouts in the American war/genocide against its first citizens.

Magnificently played by Wes Studi (The New World), Geronimo earns over the years the grudging respect even of those sent to defeat him, including General Crook (Gene Hackman, The Conversation) and various officers and scouts played by the likes of Jason Patric (The Losers), Robert Duvall (The Killer Elite), and – in an early role – Matt Damon (Downsizing). Highlighted by a Ry Cooder (Buena Vista Social Club) score, available on this Twilight Time release as an isolated track.

Special features on this Twilight Time release of Hill’s Western include an isolated music track and an original theatrical trailer.
