The story set in 1866, post-Civil War Texas has everyone armed with Colt Model 1873 pistols with bullet loops full of cartridges on their gun-belts, even the movie poster has William Holden's character Dan holding a short barrel 'gunfighter's' version of the .45 caliber pistol. This is seven years before the pistol was introduced by Colt. The most common sidearm of the day would have been the Colt 1869 Army which was a cap and ball weapon that had to be hand loaded chamber by chamber with powder, wadding and a ball projectile.

This is a very good western with two great up and coming actors at that time. Glen Ford and William Holden really shined in this movie and it paid off good for both of them.
This was Fords 9th film and Holden's 6th, but you could never tell it by their acting. These two men played well off each other. It didn't hurt that they had Claire Trevor as their love interest either. The cast is rounded out with the great actor Edgar Buchanan playing the bad guy, I know it's hard to hate a man like Buchanan.
This is NOT a B cowboy movie, far from it. The scrip and acting is very good, and the movie has a good plot as it moves alone and never leaves you bogged down. Ford and Holden play well off each other, so well in fact it wasn't long before Hollywood teamed them up again in another western "The Man From Colorado".
So if your looking for a very good western with a great cast that has plenty of action along with some humor and love, you can't go wrong with this movie.
