Trivia

Two versions of this film exist. One is titled "Gone with the West", and appears to have been filmed in the mid 1970s, while the second is titled "Little Moon and Jud McGraw", 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" 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 »

Poorly presented western starring James Caan (as Jud McGraw) as an outlaw type trying to be good in a corrupt town. Robert Walker (as the Sheriff) shares his beard, Aldo Ray (as as Mimmo) takes a bath, Sammy Davis Jr. (as Kid Dandy) wears black leather pants, and Stefanie Powers (as Little Moon) shows her bare buttocks. To appear more Native American, Ms. Powers wears an "Elvira, Mistress of the Dark" hairpiece. She successfully holds it on during a struggle with Mr. Caan. This film was first shelved, then released as "Gone with the West" in 1975. It should have stayed gone, but was re-produced with new framing and narration as "Little Moon & Jud McGraw" in 1978. The stunts, especially those involving fire, are done well. Otherwise, this is a movie mess.

** Gone with the West/ Little Moon & Jud McGraw (1975/1978) Bernard Girard ~ James Caan, Stefanie Powers, Aldo Ray, Sammy Davis Jr.
