Comanche Territory is a 1950 American Western film directed by George Sherman and starring Maureen O'Hara and Macdonald Carey. Jim Bowie is sent into Comanche country by the government on a mission to draw up a treaty allowing the government to mine silver on the Indian's turf. Filming was done in and around the Oak Creek Canyon area of Arizona.


A treaty prevents settlers setting up camp on Comanche territory, but silver has been found and the government has sent Jim Bowie (Macdonald Carey) and Dan'l Seeger (Will Geer) to hold up the treaty and to negotiate a new treaty to allow the precious metal to be mined. Bowie soon finds that settlers are planning a raid on the Comanche, all instigated by saloon owner Katie Howard (Maureen O'Hara) and her crooked brother Stacey (Charles Drake). Katie falls in love with Bowie and turns honest, but it may be too late to prevent a war.



In March 1949 Universal announced they would make a biopic of Jim Bowie produced by Len Goldstein, most likely to star Scott Brady as Bowie.[2] The film was originally called The Bowie Knife and Maureen O'Hara was assigned to star. It was O'Hara's second film for Universal, following Bagdad.[3] In August filming was postponed a week so that O'Hara could recover from laryngitis.[4]

It was co-star Carey's second film on loan from Paramount.[5]

Location work was done at Kanab, Utah.[6]
