I had the opportunity to be an extra in this movie. It was an incredible way to spend the summer of 1989. Hours of sitting on a horse in the hot Alberta sun in the river valley near Morley. Most of the horses that were used came from the Morley Indian reservation and some were barely broken in at all. The scenery was as good as it gets with the Rocky Mountains as a backdrop and the Bow River flowing nearby. The food provided could have been a lot better but that was a minor thing compared to the magnitude of this production. Watching it for the first time on the big screen was phenomenal. It's hard to believe that it would be such a magnificent movie when you're hot, sweating and dusty in 90 degree temperatures, and that's basically all you see for the whole summer. What a glorious time it was!! I've been wanting to buy a copy for myself and never even thought of Ebay until seeing the other posts on here. Us extras should have a reunion sometime!!
