Apache Woman is a 1955 Western film directed by Roger Corman. It was one of two Westerns he made for American International Pictures, the other being The Oklahoma Woman (1955).[2]

Plot[edit]

The Apaches are being rebellious and government agent Rex Moffett is called in to get to the bottom of who is behind it. Possible suspects include half Apache Anne Libeau and her bother Armand Libeau.

Production[edit]

The movie was one of the first releases of the American Releasing Corporation which became AIP.[3]

Corman found the experience interesting because it was one of the few films he directed where he had not developed the script himself. Nonetheless he enjoyed the film, particularly working with Lloyd Bridges and Joan Taylor. It was shot in two weeks, mostly at the Iverson Ranch in the San Fernando Valley.[4]

Dick Miller made his acting debut in the film.[5]
