According to a 'Time Out' review, this movie was Burt Reynolds's "first serious attempt to be funny". See more »
O.W. had Sam Whiskey shoot his Gatling-style gun, but Sam was hitting below the targets. O.W. said he was adjusting for Sam's eyesight and raised the front sight, but then he shot it himself and hit the targets. Raising the front sight would lower the trajectory of the bullets even further, not raise it. And the adjustment was for Sam's eyes, not O.W.'s, yet O.W. was the one who shot the gun and hit the targets after raising the front sight. See more »
Not even Reynolds is able to muster up charm in this fairly dreary western. Actually, though set in the wild west, the movie is more of a caper movie than a western. This wouldn't have been so bad had the capering been exciting and executed with vigor, but it isn't. Some clumsy filming techniques and the production values make it resemble a television production of its era.
