Trivia

In order to make the movie, David Carradine forfeited his customary profit participation and the Keach brothers gave up their profit percentages as executive producer in order that the Carradine brothers got the same amount of profits. When the film went over its $7.5 million budget, the Keaches forfeited their executive producer fees. See more »

Goofs

When Bob Younger is thrown from his horse in Northfield, Minnesota, and in the next two shots of him as he struggles to his feet under fire, he is holding a revolver in each hand. When the shot next cuts to him, he is frantically working and firing a Winchester 1866 (Yellow-boy) rifle. Presumably this came from the boot in his horse's saddle, but he has had barely a second in which to retrieve it. See more »

Damn Yankee!
23 November 2006 | by (Allentown, PA) – See all my reviews

This film was historically correct in how it showed the attitudes of the times. I saw this film finally after reading a book attempting to explain why American history, including the Wild West years, has been so violent. I was amazed how accurately the film showed those reasons in the Wild West. Mostly men, few women, lived in that part of the country then. The West was spacious and spectacular but also boring, leaving men with little to do but get drunk and play a mouth harp. Also, many of the tough guys hailed from the post-Confederate South. In the film, after taking the long, boring train ride north to a town in Minnesota (to the tune of a mouth harp,) they encountered well-dressed, prosperous Scandinavian-Americans in the streets. These people were barely intelligible as they mocked the long riders. When our anti-heroes arrived at the bank, they discovered what the townsfolk were saying. What they said to the lone teller revealed they were from the South. I was mesmerized by this part of the film and hope others were, too.
