Quotes

John Cord: Keep your herd pointed due East. You should hit Horse Thief Creek in about ten days.
Garth: Where are you taking them?
John Cord: Northeast.
Garth: The Dismal River... it's bone dry, isn't it?
John Cord: No. They'll be able to smell it. It's too thin to plow and too thick to drink.
Garth: Those cows will go berzerk.

Cattle Empire and the Great Joel Mcrae
15 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Cattle Empire has a strong story line and I won't give it away, but give this film a chance. If you like Westerns this is a film you must see! It is probably considered a "B" movie, but so many Western movies are(supposedly). If you look at this film through the eyes of a person in 2006, it may seem like you could have written the script yourself, but it's not that simple. There are subplots galore and Joel Mcrae is involved in them all, to some extent. There are women on this ride and that alone brings problems for the men on the cattle drive. Enjoy this film for the era it was made in and don't judge too harshly. This is an excellent Saturday afternoon rainy day film.If you like your Westerns any time watch it on a Sunny afternoon, you'll enjoy it just the same. We are true Western fans! Enjoy!
