Trivia

This film is basically a remake of Gunga Din (1939) set in the American "Wild West". After filming was completed, the producers discovered they needed to secure the rights to the original story. They were forced to pay a large fee to the copyright owners before the film could be released. See more »

Goofs

The shown lever-action arms carried by the soldiers were not issued to US units. 1873 saw the initial issuance of trapdoor Springfields, a breech-loading single shot rifle or carbine using a .45 caliber metallic cartridge - the same arms carried by Custers's troopers at Little Bighorn. See more »

RARE RAT PACK COMEDY/WESTERN GEM
5 January 2004 | by See all my reviews



If you are reading this you probably know how much fun this Rat Pack

film is to watch. You probably also have not seen it in years thanks to United Artists who own the rights. I don't think it will be made available for sale anytime soon. This is one of my favorites from this genre of film making. The reason is that I love the Rat Pack , western movies and comedies. But I think you have to be a big fan of the Rat Pack to have much interest in the film. This is why I don't think we will see it released for sale to the public. There are some folks selling copies of VHS & DVD (taped from reel). I would use caution when buying because I have spent money on some pretty bad versions over the years.
