Storyline

It's the frontier of the American west. Shortly after being released from prison where he was serving a sentence for murder, Jay Grobart leads a band of three other men - Dawes, Billy Bowen and an Indian named Charlie Bent - in robbing a train of its Wells Fargo cargo of $100,000. In their escape from the scene, they are forced out of circumstance to take along a young woman, against her will, she who is traveling by herself on horseback. She is Mrs. Willard Crocker - Catherine - who they can tell is wealthy. Although they do not let her go, she vows that she will not tell the authorities about them as she, like them, is running away. As Jay, the leader, embarks on his next mission - to fulfill the reason he stole the money - he has the problems of managing the three men, Dawes and Billy in particular who are solely out for their own selfish wants which now includes their carnal wants with Catherine, and making sure Catherine does not escape. But as they spend more time together and ... Written by Huggo

Trivia

Michel Legrand was originally hired to compose the musical score for the film. He composed his score in Paris in May 1973 and recorded a little over twenty minutes of it in Hollywood the following month, whereupon director Richard C. Sarafian and studio executives James Aubrey and Daniel Melnick informed Legrand that his score was not what they felt the film needed and that he was being dismissed. See more »

Goofs

During the opening credits Catherine is riding "side saddle" but her legs are both on the right side of the horse, which is the "wrong" side for an English ladies' saddle. The film is flopped in this shot as later she has her legs on the proper side. See more »

Burt Reynolds best movie
21 July 2002 | by (southern california) – See all my reviews

A western that is equal or better than others westerns of its era. A strong cast with excellent performances by Jack Warren and Lee J. Cobb, it is the only Burt Reynolds movie I like. The scenery is outstanding and all the characters fit nicely in the roles and are believable. It reminds me of McCabe and Mrs. Miller but with more action The plot although not unique has its moments as the dynamics of the "gang" are played out. Burt has never been better and clearly missed his calling as a western hero, he plays the strong silent type much better than road he went down in his career.
