The horse ridden by Kelly is the same one that Clint Walker rode most of the time in the television series, Cheyenne (1955). The horse, named Brandy, can be identified by the large white blaze and the white spot on its right hip. See more »

A fine cast, good story and action make this a great western
The location scenery help make this a fine picture, with TV's Cheyenne, Clint Walker as the title character. Edd (Kooky) Byrnes shows signs that he could have been a good actor in a supporting role. Only real problem is the typical Warner Brothers Indian Maiden...complete with full make-up and blue eyes. The script moves along at a fast pace, the action scenes are great, and Walker appears HUGE on the screen today. This is a fun western to watch.
