Trivia:
An alternate ending was shot where the townspeople filed out of the building where Horn was executed. The sole person left in the room was one of the "kid deputies" standing guard at the door.See more »

Factual errors: The rifle Steve McQueen uses in the film is a Winchester Model 1876, stated to be chambered in .45-60 Winchester, however, the rifle was actually chambered in .45-75 Winchester. The real life Tom Horn carried a Winchester Model 1894 chambered in .30-30 Winchester.See more »

Underrated classic, 26 January 2004
Author: david_blakemore from Wolverhampton England

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.
