Did You Know?


Producer Robert L. Lippert decided he wanted to try directing a film himself, and picked this one. However, when he found himself falling behind schedule, he "fired" himself and hired director Paul Landres to finish it on time and on budget, which he did. See more »


When rancher Pete Ferguson is slain, one of his ranch hands is seen fleeing. In the full body shot he is quite portly, but in the shot of him mounting his horse is filmed from the waist down in a (failed) attempt to hide the fact that it is a stuntman mounting the horse in his place. The stuntman is noticeably thinner/more fit and taller. See more »


Duke Barnum: There oughta be a law against a man carrying concealed weapons. You boys get tempted too easy.

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.
