In the night scene where the minstrel rides out, the general store windows are lit from within and obviously connected to the saloon interior thus showing the set storefronts are a single facade and not individual exteriors. It's a common mistake in old westerns. See more »
I'm going to go against the positive few reviews so far posted here. I was very disappointed, and found it the poorest of "gang in a ghost town" Westerns that I've seen. Pity, because the cast was reasonably strong. About the only interesting thing in it was what I thought was John Larch's resemblance to Gary Cooper.
None of the characters is at all likable and most of the could be a stage play, with so much action confined to one room. These aren't necessarily bad things for a film, but all the talking and no action was tedious, as were the white characters turning on each other and the inevitable interaction between Chaney and each of the four gangsters.
I nearly turned off my recording of the film but struggled through to the ending, which was OK.
