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 »
Why do you ride with men like these?
Oh, I don't know. I just got used to it, I guess, through the years. You begin one way, you keep going that way, and pretty soon there's no other way.

Sure, Dean and Jimmy starred in better westerns in their careers, RIO BRAVO and THE MAN WHO SHOT LIBERTY VALANCE, to name a few, but this one doesn't have John Wayne. The Duke didn't need to be here. This is a good ride that holds the formula western of better days to its heart and you're none the worse off for having given 90+ minutes of your time. And yes, Raquel Welch is gorgeous, baking in the hot Mexico sun. Dino doesn't sing, but the soundtrack by Jerry Goldsmith is haunting.
