Goofs

Billy's extra gun at the gunfight at the creek starts off as a single-action blue steel Colt Bisley, recognizable for the distinctive shape of its grip frame, and turns into a nickel-plated double action revolver when he crawls out to the log. See more »

Strictly a been-there-done-that western...the actors look as bored as viewers are likely to be
17 August 2011 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

Director George Seaton's last film, an inert, tepid western about childhood pals and one-time cattle-ranch partners Dean Martin and Rock Hudson winding up on divergent paths: Martin joins a small gang of outlaws and robs a train near Bisbee while Hudson becomes sheriff of the neighboring community. Formula drama without any hint of suspense or even wayward humor. As soon as the crooked foursome robs the train, they split up over greed (with Dino taking control of the loot); Hudson hears about the robbery and immediately takes off on his horse, only to end up at his office sitting behind a desk. Nothing in Theodore Taylor's screenplay seems fresh or well thought out, and most of the dialogue is downright atrocious ("That hold-up was as slick as spit on a round doorknob!"). Hudson gives a little more energy than enervated Martin, but all in the cast seem to realize this is fatigued material. David Shire's score is a minor asset. *1/2 from ****
