Apache Ambush is a 1955 western film, released by Columbia Pictures, directed by Fred F. Sears and starring Bill Williams and Richard Jaeckel. During the last days of the Civil War, President Lincoln (James Griffith) selects Indian scout James Kingston (Bill Williams) to facilitate a cattle shipment from Texas to the north. He is helped by cattle driver O’Roarke (Ray Teal) and Maj. McGuire (Don Harvey). Mexican fanatic Joaquin Jironza (Alex Montoya) wants the Henry Repeating Rifles that Kingston has. Embittered ex-rebel leader Lee Parker (Richard Jaeckel) is also an obstacle to Kingston's mission, as he tries to get the cattle through Apache territory.
