Trivia:
When the raft/ferry carrying the treasure seekers across the river is cut free it's swept down stream and everyone jumps off and swims ashore. There's an aerial shot of the raft supposedly breaking up in the rapids then a shot looking up at a waterfall as the wreckage comes over the top. The waterfall is actually High Force in Teesdale, Co Durham, England.See more »

Mackenna's Gold, 26 January 2005
Author: adam6194 from United Kingdom

I first saw this film a few months ago on TV and i thought it was so good i bought it on DVD.Now I'm not really a fan of westerns but this film really got me interested in them.The Film is set in the Arizona territory of the 1870's. Gregory Peck is brilliant as Sam Mackenna who is the only living person who knows the torturous route to the fabulous "canon del oro." During his journey Mackenna is captured by Colorado played by the great Omar Shariff, a brutal Mexican bandit who has long sought his death. But, if Mackenna is to lead the cut-throat gang to the lost treasure, Colorado must keep him alive. En route, Mackenna and the outlaw band are joined by renegade soldiers, vengeful Indians, cold-blooded killers and "gentlemen from town" As they near golden canyon, all but Mackenna are swept by a sudden fever - the naked greed for Gold. Mackenna's Gold is one of the most exciting Westerns ever made.
