The firearms being used belong to the period from about 1870 to 1880. If this film was set during the California gold rush period of 1849 the weapons should all be percussion cap and black powder. Repeating rifles weren't developed until late in the Civil War. See more »
While Garden of Evil is not known to most film fans, it is a favorite of many. Everything about this film is great. The scenery, the music, the incredible cast. Unlike today's films it has lots of say about greed, heroism, love between men, loyalty, and betrayal. It also has more great lines than most movies - all
delivered brilliantly by Susan Hayward, Gary Cooper and Richard Widmark.Here are some as I remember them (not necessarily accurate). Susan to Coop: You need me. Because without me, Mister, you're lost. And when you're lost in this country, you're dead. Widmark to Coop: See that. Every night the sun goes down, and it always takes someone with it. Tonight it's me. Coop to himself: If the earth would made of gold, men would kill for a handful of dirt.
This should be on list of the ten best westerns, right up there with Shane and The Searchers
