Trivia

There are numerous mentions of the "Stage to Lordsburg," the original title of John Ford's western classic, "Stagecoach", to which writer Kennedy is obviously showing homage. See more »

Goofs

When Cody pulls the saddle off his now fallen horse and flings it at a Comanche, unseating him, he doesn't take the time to unbuckle the cinch. Without doing that, the saddle would never have come off. See more »

Dobie: I still don't like it. My folks brought me up to be kind to a woman. You know, yes ma'am... no ma'am. Open doors for them. Give them my chair. Not go around killing them.

Western for western fans, good late Ranown
9 October 2002 | by (Oakland CA) – See all my reviews

Beautiful, crafted piece has Scott rescuing a woman abducted by Comanche -- not from the Camanche (they're willing to trade her for some rugs) but from Akins and his friends, who plan to return the woman dead to her husband to get the reward. Like the other Burt Kennedy/Boetticher films, the film's lack of scope is part of what makes it good -- it is fierce, to the point, tells its story with no bones or pretensions about it. Damn good show.

This is the kind of western I like, and I'd just like to ad in comment that John Ford, hallowed though he be in film fan circles, could not have made a film this good. His "The Searchers" is, at best, a wannabe Ranown film, and its psychological subtlety is nothing to compare with Kennedy/Boetticher. I would say the same thing for Anthony and Delbert Mann, and reserve my great appreciation in Westerns in the 50s for Boetticher and Jacques Tourneur.

p.s. it's been pointed out to me since writing this that of course "The Searchers" came out before the Ranown films so obviously I was off my rocker there. Also I've come to quite enjoy Anthony Mann's westerns and at this point I hold them equal to Boetticher's and Tourneur's.
