Trivia

William Goldman wrote a full-length feature film script, intended to be a cinema release starring Steve McQueen and directed by Don Siegel. McQueen fell out with both men and made his film with others - "Tom Horn" was finally released, after many delays and changes of personnel, in 1980. Goldman's script was converted into this two-part TV movie, with many alterations of which Goldman disapproved. See more »

Not very historical...
1 August 2001 | by (Northridge, Ca) – See all my reviews

Sorry, but this film is not the most historical film made concerning Tom Horn. Not one authoritative source on Geronimo--neither Davis's autobiography nor Angie Debo's definitive biography nor any other--state that Horn had anything to do with capturing Geronimo; he wasn't even on the massive U.S. campaign, let alone serve as the one to bring the Apache in (the 1993 movie GERONIMO with Jason Patric probably portrays the capture most accurately). So this movie's whole first half is all largely fiction, based probably on the lies and tall tales the real Tom Horn liked to claim for himself (on a side note to this, John Dehner plays an unsympathetic Horn-like character in the Burt Lancaster movie APACHE, with John McIntyre as Al Sieber). The second half is little better; General Crook, for instance, shows up in a time period when historically he was long already dead.

That said, I must say I enjoy this TV movie a good deal and wish that it would get released. It deserves a viewing...but don't confuse it with history.
