Quotes

Vance Reno: Listen, Brett, we didn't steal this money. We took it in battle, fair and square. It's what they call "spoils of war", like capturing a horse or anything else. We didn't know the war was over, and neither did the Federals. So it's still prize money.

A casual debut for a future superstar.
19 October 1999 | by (Muskogee OK) – See all my reviews

Elvis' screen debut didn't put much pressure on his lack of experience. The story line was pretty much like a tv western and seemed awkward trying to fit Elvis' songs into the script. Inspite of being unpolished, Presley still came out almost a flawless gem. Everyone has to start somewhere. This film was by no means something to be ashamed of. 20th Century Fox gave the audience what they wanted...ELVIS.
