In one version, there is jump from a scene where the party of 5 is stopped for a rest with their horses tied up to a rope to a scene where the party is seen to approach the town of Tomahawk Gap with the wounded Kid riding the only one horse. Three horses have disappeared. See more »
Did not follow the unwritten moral codes of those times.
When this film came out, people were used to westerns where there was a good guy and a bad guy. In this film, all the guys seemed bad, and that's what made it interesting. The story is about when they are released from jail, start looking for hidden money, and end up in a desert town where they are attacked by Indians. The relationships between the guys is one of not trusting, not helping and violent. John Derek at the beginning is just a senseless kid trying to prove he is tough, but after he is wounded by a woman they find among the Indians (Maria Elena Marques), he starts changing, specially because of the way she starts nursing him together with the help of an old man. The old man wants to help Derek get on the right track, and not end up in jail again. There are many scenes of violence, which shocked people at that time, but look tame today compared with the Spaghetti and the westerns of Sam Peckinpah.
