Goofs

Duke's horse is described as a roan several times. It's not a roan but appears to be a chestnut or sorrel. A roan horse has numerous white hairs mixed in with its main color all over its body, which gives it a much lighter look. See more »

Why didn't someone rustle this movie?
20 October 1999 | by (Frederick, MD) – See all my reviews

When my dad was young, Grandpa would take him to the drive-in to see westerns. They always parked in the front row so that, as Grandpa said, "So we could smell the horse manure." One does not need to get too close to smell the fumes coming from this movie.

The hero's name is Duke (could they have been trying to cash in on John Wayne?) Anyway, Duke is a robber-cum-rancher the filmmaker couldn't decide if he was a good guy (white hat) or a bad guy (blank bandana). They also couldn't decide if he was going to have a romantic relationship or not. He had the attention of two lady cowboys (cowgirls? cowbabes? cowchicks? cowladies?), both of whom seek his attention. Maybe they want to have his children, maybe they want to share him as part of a harem...who knows? That angle (among many) is never fully developed.

The big fuss seems to be about stealing all of the mares from the wild horses running free and minding their own business near the quaint town of Jacksonville. A couple of bad guys at the Double C ranch want all the horses for themselves, eventually setting the stage for Duke's sham trial for the murder of the head of the Double C.

Watch this on MST3K, since they do a hilarious send up of the original Star Trek's "parallel universe" episode ("Mr. Crow -- your agonizer, please!!" "Oh, goody, someone left us an agony booth!") Otherwise, Sterno says brand this cow a loser.
