Did You Know?

Goofs

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 »

Tedious, too much talk
9 June 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

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.
