Trivia

The Ben Johnson character "Doc Bogardus" is a combination of two professional exhibition shooters who carried on a rivalry from 1877 - 1883. William Frank "Doc" Carver (1840-1927) and Capt. Adam Henry Bogardus (1833-1913). The rivalry ended in 1883 when Carver out shot Bogardus in 19 of the 25 sponsored contests between them. See more »

Quotes

Robert W. 'Bob' Halburton: The point is you two are the most startling commodity to hit the world since Mr. Judson's book on Hickok and Cody. You are certified celebrities now. The Cardiff/Rose books are out-selling all the other dime novels five to one. People are going to pay handsomely to see you take on the best shooters in the country.
Caleb Rice: Not to mention the side bets.
Hugh Cardiff: Caleb, you ought to quit while you're behind.

If you like westerns this is a great one
13 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the basic western of man meets girl, looses girl.

The cast is second to none. Mini Series on TV Sam Elliott plays Hugh Cardiff an ex-Buffalo hunter. With his shooting skills he starts the following the shooting competitions.

At the shooting competitions he meets Ben Johnson and Timothy Scott, the 3 become good friends.

The threesome get into trouble and help each other out.

For a historical flare, the threesome even meet Wild Bill Hickok and go into business together.

While long for a movie, if you like to just sit down and watch one for a couple/three nights this one is a great one.
