Trivia

Gregory Peck stated that the movie was written as an attack on McCarthyism, which he strongly opposed. See more »

Goofs

The interior church scenes are of a magnificent, highly ornate, and vast - probably Metropolitan - cathedral. This is hardly in keeping with the small-town setting of the film. External shots do not show such a massive architectural edifice. See more »

Quotes

Sheriff Sanchez: Ladies and gentlemen, there's no need for me to tell you - the emergency arose and the man appeared. Mr Douglass, it's not often a man gets to do so much for his neighbors and do it like you did. We want you to know we'll always be grateful... and in our hearts always.
Jim Douglass: Thank you... and in your prayers, please.

Not your typical western
16 December 2000 | by (Boston MA) – See all my reviews

The first thing that let's you know this isn't what you expect in a western is Peck from the beginning seems more like his character in "Moby Dick" than "To Kill a Mockingbird" . Any movie with a twisted (and uncredited) performance by Joe DeRita ("Curly Joe") of the Stooges has to take off in strange directions . To give away too much of the plot would be cruel ("Sixth Sensish") . Ninety eight minutes well spent;still holds up after all these years (super cast of supporters);makes "The Searchers" seem normal.
