Storyline

Karl Westover, an inexperienced farm boy, runs away after unintentionally killing a neighbor, whose family pursues him for vengeance. He meets Barbarosa, a gunman of near-mythical proportions, who is himself in danger from his father-in-law Don Braulio, a wealthy Mexican rancher. Don Braulio wants Barbarosa dead for marrying his daughter against the father's will. Barbarosa reluctantly takes the clumsy Karl on as a partner, as both of them look to survive the forces lining up against them. Written by Jim Beaver <jumblejim@prodigy.net>

Trivia

In an August 1990 interview with Australian film magazine 'Cinema Papers', director Fred Schepisi said of this film, "...you could do wide shots at both ends of the day, because of the way that the mountains were structured. And as you moved into to do closer work, there was always a direction you could point where you would get great light and good texture on the backgrounds". See more »

Goofs

In the scene where the race contestants approach the finish line where Willie and Gary have stopped to watch, just as the riders round the curve to the finish, you can see a farm tractor pulling something behind the racers. See more »

Quotes

[Barbarosa and Karl are surrounded by bandits]
Angel: You are on my road, senor.
Barbarosa: This is your road? I don't see any signs. You see any signs, farm boy? You should put up a sign; this is my road.
Angel: Signs? Look around you, there are signs everywhere (nods toward armed bandits). Maybe you don't know who I am.
Barbarosa: I think I recognize you. You're Mr. Shit.
Angel: I am Angel Morales.
Barbarosa: Do you know who I am?
Angel: Si, senor; I know who you are.
Barbarosa: (to Karl) We might be in a little trouble here.

How legends are made.
16 June 2002 | by (North Carolina) – See all my reviews

This movie was apparently never released in theaters. Not sure why. It is in my top 100 westerns. I watch it every year or so, and see something new every time. Willie Nelson is appropriately understated. Busey is perfect for his role.
