Did You Know?

Goofs

At the beginning of the movie, when the train is going down the tracks, a train whistle sounds. However, no steam comes from the train's whistle, just the black smoke from its smokestack. This is obviously an added-in sound effect. See more »

Quotes

John Behan: How would you boys like to pick up a little extra spending money?

Unexceptional
4 November 2001 | by (Victoria, BC) – See all my reviews

I've noticed that a lot of American westerns from the '60s play out like they were made for TV, with the static direction and production values - this is one of them. It's far from the worst western ever made - for one thing, it has Robert Mitchum, and he manages to brighten up each scene he's in. But he can only do so much - the movie is pretty padded, sometimes blatantly so when it shows people riding the desert for minutes on end. It's perhaps no wonder that the spaghetti western caught the American public's fancy around this time - though many of the stories were as standard as this one, they at least were more lively done.
