Goofs

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 »

Typical western with a slight twist
7 May 1999 | by (Windsor, Ontario) – See all my reviews

The movie is very typical of westerns with the exception of the role played by Mel Torme. Also it was different with a chinese man becoming a gunfighter. Very unusual for that time era. Jack Lord plays the usual hero. Protect the girl

  • fall for the girl - lose the girl.
