The film stars Gregory Peck as Marshal MacKenna, Omar Sharif as Mexican outlaw John Colorado and Telly Savalas as US Cavalry Sergeant Tibbs. The plot revolves around the gold, hidden in on Apaches territory. MacKenna takes a treasure map from dying shaman Prairie Dog (Eduardo Ciannelli) who was already stalked by Colorado's gang. As events unfold, more and more people become involved in the treasure hunt, including Inga Bergmann (Camilla Sparv), kidnapped by Colorado, and treacherous Sgt. Tibbs.
