The final shot of the film shows an eastbound train leaving Pasadena and chugging into the sunset, which means that the sun is setting in the East. See more »
Wait a minute, Wyatt, there's something we gotta get sorted out here. I threatened to rope him behind my horse and drag him, then you waltz in pretty as you please and threaten to kill him. I don't like being out-threatened.
Sorry. Won't happen again.

This is an enjoyable film giving us a glimpse into the Golden Age of Hollywood. This movie teams up Bruce Willis as Tom Mix and James Garner as Wyatt Earp. The running gag of it's the truth..."give or take a lie or two." This movies runs the gamut from comedy with a wink to a serious side story containing masochism and murder.
Willis shows off his skills with trick riding and tango dancing. Garner has the sidekick role and holds his own even having his own romantic interest. The women are strong but dependent. We have car chases, riding to the rescue both by taxi and on horseback. There is a brothel with a true Hollywood touch. We even see one of the first Acedemy Award ceremonies. All in all a nice entertaining movie.
