Goofs

As the gang is searching for a sand-covered railroad track in a sand storm they have yet to find anything. Yet behind them, to the right of the picture, as the camera moves to the right slightly, we get a clear view of the camera dolly track, shiny and sand-free. See more »

I like this movie because
11 August 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I have never seen a John Wayne movie that I didn't enjoy, although some of the very early stuff was a little hammy.

The Duke always gave his best in all his films. Who cares about little little blips here and there. The Good guy always wins, and usually gets the girl.

This film excels because of the way it leads the viewer down a dirty dusty path, with a wonderful twist just where you don't expect it.

As always - Excellent Scenery, even the animals have their own little cameos.

There is plenty of drama, and enough suspense to keep up concentration levels

There are the usual little two way quips, and enough dialogue to paint a clear enough background to the key characters.

Ben Johnson is his usual dry character, Rod Taylor plays a likable delayed adolescent, Ann Margret fills her part amply!

Good Fun - Plenty of Bangs - Well Cast - Memorable Quips.

Nobody minds a bit of repetition if it works, and contributes to the storyline which it does well.
