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 (1966). 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

When Cowan is riding through the canyon at the start of the film he sees a chukkar partridge on a rock. This could not happen in the post Civil War era, as this bird was not introduced into the U.S. from Afghanistan until the 1920's as a game bird. See more »

Quotes

Catlow: You still got that warrant?
Cowan: Two. One for jumping arrest. You stirred up some kind of a hornet's nest back there. And that Miller, he's packing a lot of heat.
Catlow: Think I can't handle him?
Cowan: Well, if somebody shoots you, let's keep it in the family. I'm gonna bring you in before he carries you in.
Catlow: There's a derringer looking at you says you don't.
[Catlow has a gun underneath the table pointing at Cowan's belly]
Cowan: Oh?
[looks down at the table]
Catlow: I'd hate to shoot that badge off you just to prove it.
Cowan: Yeah, ...

Don't Waste your Time!!
12 March 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I don't think their is a five minute sequence in the whole movie that makes any sense! There are bunch of segways, the story is just plain very difficult to follow. Yul Brynner has the most annoying girlfriend i ever seen in a movie. You wish she'd just die, so you don't have to hear her. Nimoy barely speaks. The movie just moves from 1 scene to the next with a story that next to impossible to follow, and frankly the movie is so bad why bother to make any sense of it. I love western's & this is perhaps the worst i ever seen. It's not funny, nor amusing, just annoying. The story follows no guide. Even after the end scene i still couldn't even figure out if they got the gold! It's just plain that bad!
