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.

I Liked This Movie
11 December 2004 | by (Toronto Canada) – See all my reviews

I remember seeing this as a 16 year old back in 1968 and really enjoyed it.

As I'm typing this, I'm watching it again on the history network and it's interesting to see the people in it and think about their careers over the last 36 year.

A young James Caan wearing a silly looking "wig" - a very fresh faced Jan Michael Vincent before he descended into the bottle and is now just a shadow of himself - Don Stroud, a great bad guy in a couple of Clint Eastwood and a fellow named Michael Burns who was a big star back then but just seemed to drop off the face of the earth shortly after

It was a good story about 7 young guys heading off to fight in the Civil War. A great song and good story - maybe not a classic but very watchable..!!
