When Swann goes back in time to 1877 he tangles with outlaws Porter Reese and the Dorsett Brothers. Though not stated in the film, Reese and the Dorsetts were probably Confederate Civil War Veterans. Reese makes the statement about Swann's motorcycle ".. if General Lee had that machine, we'd of won the war." Reese makes another statement denoting a soldier's background when he gets to San Marcos and at gunpoint says to the village priest, Quinn, ".. that I can't have my men being shot." See more »

This film is a great example of what can be done with a low budget, decent story, and a great cast. The direction is broad, and at the same time both light-hearted and dark. I think it's a good example of balance in that regard. Please see my comments in the message board regarding the ending of the DVD version. I think you have to be able to remember back to the day - 1982 - to appreciate this movie. Superior low-budget time-loops starting with "The Terminator" were still 2 years away....
