Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Universal's Technicolor program westerns of the 1950s were among the best in the business. Comanche Territory stars MacDonald Carey as famed frontiersman Jim Bowie, who is sent into Comanche country by the government. Bowie's mission is to draw up a treaty allowing the government to mine silver on the Indian's turf. He is accompanied by politician Dan'l Seegar (Will Geer), who intends to renew the government's agreement that white settlers will be barred from setting up camp in the Comanche's land. But saloon owner Katie (Maureen O'Hara) connives to spoil Bowie's and Seegar's peacekeeping mission. Katie's brother Stacey (Charles Drake) is a no-good crook who wants to cheat the Indians out of what's rightfully theirs, which of course will result in all-out war. Falling in love with Bowie, Katie decides to turn honest--but it may be too late.
