This move was made in the late 1970's before TS achieved fame. So you may see a much slimmer and rougher actor than you may be used to. In my opinion, this is the greatest portrayal of Orrin and Tell Sackett to date. The screenplay remained true to the two novels from which it was taken ("The Daybreakers" and "Sackett"). The portrayal of the times was as authentic as we can hope for without having a camera running in the late 1800's. The supporting actors were so real you could smell the trail dust on them. The screen locations were exactly as I had pictured them in my mind when I read the novels. If you love Louis L'Amour novels and want to see the best that Hollywood has to offer, then take the time to watch this.
