A crude man is stuck in a loveless marriage. One day he decides to run away from his life and family. First he finds a mistress, but just because a man runs away from one disappointment, doesn't mean he won't run into another one.
After being framed, a cowboy is sent to jail. After his time is served, he leaves with vengeance in his heart. Soon he meets a young Native American woman and together they go to settle their score with a small town and its corrupt leader.
During the Civil War era, practically all men had beards or bushy moustaches. None of the men in this film had facial hair..
Beards were common but nowhere near universal. Period photographs show lots of clean-shaven soldiers. See more »

My, my. You're a long way from home.
Little Bit Lucket:
We're going to be longer. We're headed for Virginia.
Ain't that nice.
Little Bit Lucket:
You know, where the war is. We're goin' to fight Yankees.
I hear tell the Yankees is fightin' us. I hear tell they're mighty mean! Oh, I reckon we'll whip 'em.
Yessir - us Southerners.

This was a very good western that I really enjoyed. The story is great, the acting is great,and this movie is very educational. James Caan makes a great performance as the leader of the seven cowboys heading to Shiloh to fight in the Civil War. The other actors play their roles great too, including Michael Sarrazin, Don Stroud, Jan-Michael Vincent, Michael Burns, Paul Peterson, and the future superstar to be, Harrison Ford. Harrison Ford plays one of the seven cowboys and has about an hour of screen time, but he only has about ten lines through the whole movie. Harrison Ford's acting is okay but it was the first time he had one of the big roles in a movie early in his career. This is a great movie that deserves to have a release on video or DVD.
