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 »

The cast of Ben Johnson, Sam Elliot, and Tom Selleck in a western is unbeatable.
Some have compared this movie to The Sacketts (same writer, same cast), and gave is something of a pan.
I found the story line in general, and a couple of the sub-plots, very very entertaining. I think you have to recognize that adultery has been around since the beginning of time. The treatment of of Uncle Jack (Ben Johnson) reminded me a lot of one of my uncles, and the dialog just sounded right.
While the scenery may have looked a little California, the place settings in Texas were genuine - Big Springs and Baffin Bay are real places. Baffin Bay is at the south end of Padre Island off Laguna Madre
home of the best bay fishing in Texas.
