Arizona Raiders is a 1965 Technicolor Western Techniscope film starring Audie Murphy as a member of Quantrill's Raiders.[2]


Clint (Audie Murphy) is a Confederate war hero who has gone out West to join a renegade band, Quantrill's Raiders, and ends up captured by the law.

Sent to prison with his friend Willie Martin (Ben Cooper), he goes along with a jailbreak plan masterminded by U.S. Army Captain Andrews (Buster Crabbe) to grant the men amnesty if they help the soldiers round up Quantrill (Fred Graham) and his men. Clint has an old score to settle with Montana (George Keymas), one of the Raiders, but plans to take off on his own until both his younger brother and his pal Willie are killed.



Murphy's salary for the film was $45,000.[1]
