Goofs

In the flashback of Ben and Laura Mae hitchhiking along the lonely road in New Mexico miles from town, Cole Clinton drives up in his Imperial convertible and offers them a ride. The convertible has a rear view mirror clearly showing attached to the front windshield in the camera's wide shot point of view. In the next closeup scene with the point of view from the front of the car and the windshield centered in the frame, the rear view mirror is missing. In the next scene, a wide shot of the car driving into the hotel parking lot, the rear view mirror is mysteriously re-attached back onto the windshield. See more »

Richard Chamberlain
17 March 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Richard Chamberlain was as big a star as MGM ever had when Chamberlain was TV's Dr. Kildare. Chamberlain had an iron clad 7 year contract, and MGM kept him busy both on TV and in movies, and his first movie was the western A Thunder of Drums billed far below George Hamilton and Luana Patten. After his rocket to fame, MGM starred Richard Chamberlain in this first rate court room drama Twilight Of Honor to cash in on Chamberlain's tremendous popularity. In his Dr. Kildare days Chamberlain is reported to have gotten 15,000 fan letters per week more than Clark Gable ever got in his heyday as King of the MGM Lot. MGM in those days was the premier movie studio and this film reflects the quality production values the MGM studio gave its films. The production team of Perlberg/Seaton were assigned this film and cast along with Chamberlain a true star and class act Claude Rains. Nick Adams also stars. Quality film.
