Trivia

'Yellowbacks' were gold certificates issued by banks in place of gold coinage, and were so-called due to the yellow-orange colour of their backs. These were replaced by paper money later on - 'greenbacks'. See more »

Goofs

'Yellowbacks' were issued from 1882 to 1922. This film is set around the time of the discovery of the Comstock Lode in the 1850s. See more »

Above Average Formula Western intro for Robert Mitchum
14 September 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Once again a well-made RKO Radio Picture from yesteryear provides a fine entertainment in a summer when TV is a total washout and there are no movies at the multiplex for grown-ups over 13.

This noteworthy formula western introduces Robert Mitchum in a story that moves along fast while focusing on the early days of the Comstock Lode in Gold Hill, CA. The story is good, the acting fine, the cinematography just great. They got the history straight and everything is on-the-level except that the real Gold Hill is on a steep grade, not flat; and that's the only flaw in the movie. Filming at Lone Pine, CA certainly fooled me, as the terrain is exactly the same as around Carson City, NV and Gold Hill.

They knew how to make westerns in 1944; they don't in 2007. Unlike 3:10 to Yuma, this one doesn't turn stupid in the final 16 minutes.

Look for NEVADA in recent DVD release. Then look around the house for an old $20 Gold Double Eagle minted from Comstock gold in 1870 at the mint in Carson City. It'll be worth $200,000 in poor condition; lots more if it still looks pretty.
