Trivia

Leonard Nimoy mentioned this film in both of his autobiographies because it gave him a chance to break away from his role as Spock on Star Trek. He mentioned that the time he made the film was one of the happiest of his life, even though his part was rather brief. See more »

Goofs

Shortly after Cowan is given a beautiful Palomino (light brown horse with an ample blond mane) as a gift from Christina to replace the horse he lost while saving her brother's life, he rides off into the desert in pursuit of Catlow on a (dark brown) Quarter Horse. See more »

Quotes

"The First Time A Man was ever shot with a Boot."
11 September 2007 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

In this European made western, Yul Brynner plays it considerably lighter than he did in The Magnificent Seven. Adapted from the Louis L'Amour novel, Catlow is a pretty amusing romp through the old west by Yul Brynner as an outlaw and Richard Crenna as Ben Cowan, the marshal sworn to bring him in, but alive. The two of them were in the Civil War together and that kind of bond doesn't sever easily.

But Catlow's got all kinds of people who want him bad, the Mexican Army, the Indians, and a mean hired killer in the person of Leonard Nimoy. He's also got a girlfriend in Daliah Lavi who definitely has an agenda involving Brynner that's all her own. As for Nimoy before he became the wise and logical Vulcan Mr. Spock, he played all kinds of nasty types on television and in film.

I'm surprised Richard Crenna didn't do more westerns in his career, probably had he come along earlier he might very well have. It's a career path he should have taken.

Brynner and Crenna have a nice easy chemistry between them, it's the main reason for checking out Catlow.
