Trivia

The type of gallows used to hang Horn from are called "Julian Gallows". This device uses water to initiate the action. Not as efficient as the more conventional method, reportedly the first use of the contraption (not for Horn) required a wait of 30 minutes before the trap dropped. See more »

Goofs

At he beginning of the horse-breaking scene the horse's hair is a mess and covered in mud. Once the horse is lassoed, the horse is suddenly clean and brushed. At the conclusion of the scene, as it runs away, the horse is muddy again. See more »

Underrated classic
26 January 2004 | by (Wolverhampton England) – See all my reviews

Such a shame that the last two films Steve McQueen made didn't do very well, although it was probably a lot fairer on The Hunter which had the potential to be a great film, but the plot lost it way a bit. Tom Horn is considered to be one of the last great westerns, which Unforgiven was influenced by and got the recognition that Tom Horn didn't.

The scenery is amazing especially the shot of the court with the sunset as the verdict is been given. This is such a great film, nothing more, nothing less.
