Trivia

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 »

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 »

Quotes

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

I'm from Oregon and I still didn't like it.

This movie starts out weak and then gradually just sort of wanders off.

It has potential, story-wise. A large rancher, Cooper, is pressured by his daughter and the other small ranchers to stop rounding up the wild horses in the area. His lead man has other plans and gets himself and the other Cooper employees deputized so they can frame the small ranchers and confiscate their horses. Cooper finds out about it and confronts his lead man, who kills him and frames Barnum, the "hero." Barnum is the weak link. He seems like the laziest, least intelligent, yet most charming guy in the area. He pushes people's buttons for fun and can't decide whether he's crooked or good. They all work hard and he just rides around seeming guilty of crimes or at least thinking about committing crimes. But chicks dig him. He mostly just appears here and there, acts cocky, irritates someone, and then rides off to rendezvous with a girl. And yet somehow you really just don't care what he does. You might doze off and wake to a scene that seems almost identical to the previous one.

Whatever.
