Elvis Presley was paid for $850,000 which was more than half of the budget. Also Mr. Presley was paid 50% of profit. See more »
Already have. Billy Roy let loose by sundown. All right get that gun down this hill until it's a quarter mile from town.
Down that hill down there? That ain't a hill, Vince, that's a cliff.

A must see. Elvis is an ex-outlaw trying to go straight.
Elvis Presley plays Jesse Wade who tries to leave a gang of thieves led by Victor French. Jesse's neck is branded in order to frame him for stealing a Mexican war cannon. Jesse becomes sheriff as one of the gang is arrested. The bad guys now threaten the town with cannon fire until the leaders little brother is released from jail. Elvis sings only the title song under the credits. This is a different Elvis, with beard and a hat hung low over his eyes. Well known critic, Leonard Maltin, calls this a BOMB! Produced, directed and written by Charles Marquis Warren, this flick is better than the bad rap it has received. Also in the cast are Ina Balin, Solomom Sturgess, and Lynn Kellogg.
