Trivia:
Director Trademark: [Burt Kennedy] ["Fight!"]At the beginning of the fight scene, someone (in this case, an uncredited Richard Farnsworth) looks directly at the camera and yells, "Fight!"See more »
Goofs:
Continuity: When Flagg and McKay are running along the roof of the train, the view from inside the train shows their shadows on the cliff wall beside the tracks level with their actual position on the roof, as though the sun were nearly on the horizon throwing their shadow straight onto the cliff wall directly behind them. But when the view switches to overhead on top of the train, their shadows are directly below them as though the sun were directly overhead. This same pattern is repeated several times, camera overhead showing their shadow directly below them, then inside showing their shadows on the cliff wall out to the side.See more »
Quotes:
Flagg:You gave me your word not to try anything, and the minute I turned my back you almost took my head off.
McKay:I didn't give you my word - I gave you my promise.
Flagg:It's the same thing!
McKay:No it ain't - one's my promise, and the other's my word!

Progress Posturing., 29 November 2013
Author: JohnRouseMerriottChard from United Kingdom

The Good Guys and the Bad Guys is directed by Burt Kennedy and written by Dennis Shryack. It stars Robert Mitchum, George Kennedy, Martin Balsam, David Carradine, Tina Louise, Lois Nettleton and Douglas Fowley. A Panavision/Technicolor production, music is by William Lava and cinematography by Harry Stradling Jr.

The town of Progress and Marshal Jim Flagg (Mitchum) learns that old foe John McKay (Kennedy) is about and robbery is soon to follow. However, Jim has difficulty convincing Mayor Wilker (Balsam) that any thing is up, the Mayor apparently more concerned with bed hopping and feathering his own political nest. So when Wilker prematurely retires Jim, sticking one of his lap-dogs into the role of Marshal, Jim sets about doing his own investigation. Pretty soon both Jim and John, one time enemies on either side of the law, find that both of them are out of time with an ever changing West.

Amiable. Burt Kennedy's film doesn't have the best of reputations, seemingly the blend of comedy and drama not teasing out much interest from the Western enthusiasts. It's true enough to say that the main theme, that of the changing West and two men finding themselves relics of the time, is ultimately playing second fiddle to the frivolity, while the finale tips over into over zealous slapstick farcery, yet Kennedy and Shryack imbue the picture with a genuine love of the genre. The director lets the pairing of Mitchum and Kennedy unfurl naturally, whilst also giving Balsam license to have a great time, thus all key performers are ever watchable. Scenic delights await within as Chama and Silverton provide location oomph, and the action quotient is in good supply.

Disposable for sure, but fun while it's on. 6.5/10
