Although Joseph Cotten brought all his own food and water from the States to the shoot in Mexico, it was to no avail. He was the first of the film crew to get sick. See more »

I got a warrant for your arrest. I'm taking you back to Frio County, Texas, to stand trial. Will you come voluntarily, or will I have to take you?
Brendan 'Bren' O'Malley:
Say, it just happens that I'm headed for Texas right now... to Crazy Horse. Of course, it isn't Frio County, but you'll die alot closer to home than if I had to kill you here.

In this movie, Robert Aldrich , put actors first order in the main characters, but gave the characters secondary competent people how the enormous Joseph Cotton.
It is a Western romantic, led by Aldrich with an enormous strength and agility. . An address to recall by its undoubted quality.. The film has a indent impressive. The relationship between Kirk Douglas and the girl is precious, best, with moments really impressive and harmony between Hudson and Douglas is also evident, and Kirk Douglas comes out in its action. Douglas makes the best interpretation of the film, his character is makes you want at any time.. Rock Hudson also makes a good role. Both Dorothy Malone how Carol Lynley that show both an extraordinary beauty, they play very well with its role, and of course the impressive Joseph Cotten.
Robert Aldrich made a western truly amazing before addressing the magnificent film "the dirty dozen ".
