Throughout the first half of the film, Clanton is seen sliding down hills, crawling on the ground and riding horses that are kicking up dust; yet during the close-ups his Union uniform is always clean and crisp. See more »
We're going to California. We hear there's gold out there.
There's gold in the mint at Denver, too, and it's a lot closer.

Opening credits: "This story tells a forgotten chapter in the violent history of the West. Months after the tragic war between the States had ended there was still no peace on the Western Frontier." See more »
I really do enjoy the westerns made by RKO around this time.They seemed to include just about every outlaw roaming the west throughout a period of 100 years.They also employed just about every Western character actor available at the time.This even has the advantage of Technicolour which shows that this was clearly an A film.RKO had clearly decided that if Universal were going to throw all their horror characters in one film they would do the same in Westerns.They would of course make sure that most of the Badmen survived so they could use them in another film.For me the standout performance was of Walter Brennan.Any film with him had a big plus.Also that favourite Warner gangster Bart Mclane.
