Trivia

Two versions of this film exist. One is entitled "Gone With the West" and appears to have been filmed in the mid 1970s, while the second is entitled "Jud McGraw and Little Moon" which appears to be a re-edited version of "Gone with the West' with some additional scenes and a name change for the main character from 'Jebediah Kelsey' (sp?) to 'Jud McGraw'. The second version may have been released in the late 1970s. See more »

Goofs

When Little Moon kills the hare/ rabbit with the sling, the shots of the hare/ rabbit show it to be in a completely different environment - more grass, less rocks. See more »

The West Is A Mess
25 October 2009 | by (The Lonesome Prairie) – See all my reviews

Ex-convict James Caan is released from prison and sets out to exact some long overdue vengeance on Aldo Ray, the man who murdered his family years before and apparently the rest of the town as well.

There's some trashy fun at first but things run out of steam pretty quick and never recover.

A paper thin story, the obnoxious free-wheeling 1970's style direction, and the bad funk score are all pretty off-putting, as is the terrible performance by Stephanie Powers, who looks like Johnny Depp in Benny & Joon and is so verbally challenged she makes Tonto look like a radio talk show host!

The great Sammy Davis Jr. is sadly wasted in this. His leather-clad gunfighter character was the most entertaining thing in the movie and really deserved a better script!
