The REAL hangman, Ossie Grimes (Guy Raymond) sings "Bringing In The Sheaves" as he rides alone towards Val Verde, but the song hadn't been written yet in 1867. He sang the 1874 lyrics by Knowles Shaw to the 1880 melody by George Minor. See more »
this movie has larry mcmurtry written all over it--as someone else has noted, three of the characters have names that later showed up in "lonesome dove", roscoe's last name is bookbinder, and larry mcmurtry is a bookseller and book fanatic, most of the film is set near the texas/mexico border, where lonesome dove is located, and dee and mace have a brotherly relationship much like call and gus (and don't forget "lonesome dove" began as a screenplay intended for james stewart and john wayne) and dee and mace talk about going to montana and starting a ranch......
larry mcmurtry doesn't get a screen credit here, but i'll betcha he had something to do with the screenplay......
anyone know for sure?
