Synopsis[edit]

Anthony Caruso, John Lupton as Tom Jeffords and Michael Ansara as Cochise, 1957.

The cowboys and Indians got together to battle injustice in this Western, which starred John Lupton as Indian agent Tom Jeffords and Michael Ansara as Apache Chief Cochise.

Jeffords was originally an army officer given the assignment of getting the U.S. Mail safely through Apache territory in Arizona. Adopting the novel approach of making friends with the Indians instead of shooting at them, Jeffords soon became blood brother to Cochise. Together they fought both renegades from the Chiricahua Reservation and dishonest "white eyes" who preyed upon the Indians.

The show was based on the novel Blood Brother, by Elliott Arnold, which had been made into a movie in 1950, starring James Stewart as Tom Jeffords and Jeff Chandler playing as Cochise.
