Trivia

Produced immediately after Charlton Heston completed The Ten Commandments (1956) and reunited him with co-star Anne Baxter. This was Heston's last film under his original Paramount contract. He felt that Tom Tryon, who was cast as his brother, was not right for the part. However, because "The Ten Commandments" had not yet been released, Heston hadn't yet achieved the star clout necessary to demand cast changes. See more »

(Thirty) Three Violent People and a very angry group of extras
17 October 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

How can you not like a film that has characters named Colt Saunders, Beauregard 'Cinch' Saunders, Ruby LaSalle and the ageless Gilbert Roland as someone rejoicing in the misleading nomenclature of Innocencio Ortega.The three violent people of the title is a gross numerical understatement - all the male cast in his part of the west seem to be capable of giving and receiving their fair share of violence -Forest Tucker and Richard Jaekel are particularly outstanding in this line of work and they get great back up from Bruce Bennett and Barton MacLane. Charlton Heston as usual mistakes tightening his jaw as equating to exuding dramatic power while Tom Tryon demonstrates the technique that got him cast as a emotionless extra terrestrial on at least one occasion. The show, as was so often the case, is stolen by Gilbert Roland. Enjoyable nonsense from the golden decade of the Horse Opera.
