Goofs

When the Indians raid the ranch at the start of the movie all of the cattle in the stockade are Herefords. Herefords were not established as livestock in the western US until the 1880's when Charles Goodnight was finally able to breed them in the Texas panhandle a few other ranchers in the western US had tried in the late 1870's but all of those small herds died off after a short time.

good picture
28 January 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This a good picture for what it is. It seems to start out as a formula western with an age old plot, white man running with Indians doing bad things, lone hero sets out to stop him, etc. However the script is pretty good, there is some suspense, though we sort of know from the get-go who the bad guy is,the moment he shows on the screen. I love Sterling Hayden...for a guy who really didn't like being an actor, he does all right. Barbara Rush is beautiful and appealing. Forrest Tucker just shows up, and Victory Jory steals the picture with his oily charm.Edgar Buchannian is wasted in a role he really isn't suited for.

However, all in all, a pretty good picture. I enjoyed it.
