Quotes

Billy Doolin: Well, Bob, I'd like for you to explain something to me. Why does it have to be called 'The Dalton Gang'? You explain that to me, please?
Bob Dalton: It's simple Billy. Gangs is always called after their leader, like...ah, Jesse and Younger.
Billy Doolin: Well now, I don't see any reason why I can't be the leader.
Bob Dalton: Billy, in the first place, you don't have any leadership qualities...which I do. And the second place, a 'Doolin Gang' sounds kind of dumb. I mean, what kind of name is Doolin?

The Last Ride should have never been made
12 January 2005 | by (Augusta, Kansas) – See all my reviews

"The Last Ride of the Dalton Gang" is not any good. The script writers spin and twist the story to distort reality. A better movie would be the "The Last Day" starring Richard Widmark, Barbara Rush, and Robert Conrad. Though "The Last Day" creates a story around Richard Widmark's fictitious character, the movie is closer to some of the actual events and situations.

"The Last Ride of the Dalton Gang" characterizes the lives of the Dalton's as being frolicking womanizers. The whole movie distorts a historical event and trivializes the defenders of Coffeyville and the ones who died in the defense of their town.
