When Colonel Holiday Hammond and Major Cooper Ashbury are bringing their prisoners ashore in Laguna Madre, Mexico, three of the lifeboats are facing the shore bow first, but the fourth lifeboat is facing the shore stern first, which would make it both very difficult to paddle generally, and very difficult to beach specifically, since the bow is designed both to slice the water, and to ride up over the sand. It is also the first of the four lifeboats to come ashore, which is not likely, considering the additional resistance that boat is facing. What is more likely is that a backward facing lifeboat, encountering more resistance, would be noticeably behind the three boats facing the shore bow first. See more »

If three guys ever looked like rugged, craggy-faced cowboys, it has to be the trio that starred in this made-for-TV movie: Sam Elliott, Tom Selleck and Ben Johnson. With those guys, and a whole lot more, and a story written by Louis L'Amour, this is about as western a Western as you'll ever find.....and it should be better than it is.
There is just too much "Rambo" mentality in the good guys never get hit and the bad guys get hit with every shot. That, and a few comments made such as "(adultry) is no big deal" has no place in this story and that kind of liberalism is more with the filmmakers than the people of the Old West.
The film is just "fair" in about every aspect, nothing of note, despite a lot of similarities (cast and author) as the better-made "The Sacketts."
