Crazy Credits

Opening credits: Arizona Territory in 1897 was the last of the old frontier. The story we are about to tell is well known to historians. Names have been changed but the lust and brutality, the love and sacrifice of the people involved remain unchanged. The woman outlaw and her lovers belong now to folklore - - in 1897 they lived.

Miracle gunmen of the 50's
11 October 2003 | by (Midlothian, Virginia) – See all my reviews

Another 50's style western. Boring and very stereotypical of that decade. My vote of 3 says it all. My pet peeve? Why are the gunfighters depicted as being so good with their Colt .45's that they can shoot them from the hip area with great accuracy? And watch closely or you will miss what I call "bullet flinging". This is where the barrel of the revolver is brought straight up between shots and the gunfighter flings the barrel in the direction of the target as he squeezes off that accurate round. I shoot targets with a .357 magnum revolver, 9mm auto, and .40 auto, and I have yet to even hit the outer ring doing that. But ignore all that I have said if you are bored and just need something to do. I only watched because I have always liked Dale Robertson.
