Nobu McCarthy's knee-length white dress might have looked stylish in 1960 when the film was made, but would have been totally inappropriate and unacceptable in the 1870's time frame in which the film is taking place. See more »
I happened across this movie years ago on a independent t.v. station in the middle of the afternoon. I first watched because of Mel Torme, but I found myself thoroughly enjoying a western... *shock*. The one thing I recall most was how very "un-Mel" Mel was. His portrayal of a gunslinger was very low-key and VERY effective. If I ever get a chance to see this again, I'll have a tape ready to role. I strongly recommend it.
