Ambush at Cimarron Pass is a 1958 Western film directed by Jodie Copelan, starring Scott Brady and Clint Eastwood (third billed, later first billed upon reissue). The film also features Margia Dean, Irving Bacon, Frank Gerstle, Baynes Barron, and William Vaughn. It was released on DVD and Blu-ray on September 24, 2013. It is the first time it has been released on any home video format, and is the only feature film ever directed by Copelan, who was primarily a film editor.
A small Army patrol unit and a couple of former Confederates reluctantly throw in their lot together after being attacked by a band of Native Americans.
Eastwood appears as a Southern cowboy Keith Williams who is upset over having to join up with a group of Yankees who have been attacked by the same group of Indians. Most film guides include in their entry for this film a quote attributed to Eastwood, "probably the lousiest Western ever made." This film is also notable for a scene in which Brady beats Eastwood in a fistfight.
