Guy Madison often shaved his chest for "beefcake" scenes, but when he takes his shirt off in "Bullwhip," his chest hair - and there's a lot of it - is clearly evident. See more »
During the exterior shot of the judge opening the front door of the Sheriff's office and entering, followed by Julia and Pine Hawk, we see that behind the door is a corridor with a flight of stairs on the left leading upward. In the next interior shot, we see them now entering the Sheriff's office through the front door, but that it is one room, with no sign of any flight of stairs, let alone a corridor. See more »
Here's an example of Plot #37 -- the couple forced to wed under unusual circumstances who seem to detest each other at first but who slowly, inevitably fall in love. Since the plot holds no surprises, the success of any film using Plot #37 largely depends on its two leads. Do they have the right chemistry? And does the script give them good dialog to toss back and forth?
Alas, Rhonda Fleming and Guy Madison lack the necessary spark, and both of them seem a bit over-the-hill for this kind of romance. Their lines are without style and wit and the course of their relationship manages to proceed both predictably and unconvincingly at the same time.
An air of sexism and racism pervades the movie and its depiction of the Old West, but in ways that are more amusing than offensive. Seeing Rhonda Fleming in her Indian maiden outfit, complete with feather, has a campy charm.
Not surprisingly, Guy Madison gets to take his shirt off in order to display the chest which once adorned the inside door of a thousand high-school lockers. Though slightly faded at age 35 or so, this chest is still easy on the eyes and it's so unshaved as to be downright furry.
