Beards were common but nowhere near universal. Period photographs show lots of clean-shaven soldiers. See more »

Quotes

[Buck's men have been thrown out of an elegant party because of their ragged buckskin clothing]
Airybelle Sumner: As an Alabama patriot, I implore you to come back inside.
Buck Burnett: Oh, I don't think we'll do that ma'am. A man can get bit once by a rattler by accident; if he gets bit twice, well, that's just bein' stupid.
Airybelle Sumner: Then please accept my apology and my gratitude for the brave and noble thing you're doin'. I mean that from the bottom of my heart.

Not Especially true to history.....but enjoyable
11 March 2005 | by (Texas) – See all my reviews

This is one of those films that works because of the cast. It's fun to watch actors not well-suited to western films give it their best shot, and do well, despite that fact.

Old timers like Noah Beery, Jr and John Doucette were used to the genre, and add to the film greatly.

Newcomers (at the time), like James Caan, Michael Sarrazin, Jan-Michael Vincent, Harrison Ford, and Robert Pine would all go on to better things, but they do well here, too. Added to the mix is a TV leftover, Paul Peterson, who's part is small, but well-done.

It was obvious that the film was cast and made like it was because of the growing youth market (Wild In The Streets, Psych-Out, Savage Seven, and Chubasco, among others).

I love this film very much, and wait patiently for a widescreen DVD to be released. I can only hope I live long enough to see it happen.
