After January 29, 1861, what was across the river from St. Joe was the state of Kansas, so they never left the U.S.A.

They don't make em like this anymore, a smashing film this. The two leads are excellent and their friends are good too. There are so many great scenes in this film it's untrue! One of my favourite bits is when drew and jake have a big fight in this lady's house, and completely wreck it! It's one of the best fight scenes i've seen. There's humour and tragedy and excitement and tension. a top notch film 10/10
