Quotes

Johnny McGivern: Why didn't you draw on Kiowa?
Conn Conagher: You mean, was I afraid? Staples didn't need killing. He needed to be taught a lesson.
Johnny McGivern: He'd had killed you if he had the chance.
Conn Conagher: He might have. But I'll tell you something, kid. Any man who kills when he could do otherwise is crazy. Just plumb crazy. Some men take to a side of killing, Johnny. Just make sure when the killing time comes, you're standing on the right side.

The great Sam Elliott in a great Louis L'Amour
14 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As far as books that become movies go, this is arguably the most faithful adaptation I've ever seen. This film follows L'Amour's novel of the same name so close that most of the dialog is word for word with the book. Like HONDO, also a L'Amour, the only parts left out of this film are minor pieces that had to be omitted because the film would be 4-5 hours long if every single scene was included. Even HONDO though, which is a wonderfully faithful adaptation doesn't follow as close as CONAGHER. The parts from the book that are left out are explained rather than shown.

That being said, the film is in my opinion one of the great westerns of all time. Not THE best, but definitely worthy of mention among the best. Sam Elliott & real life wife Katherine Ross are excellent, as is the supporting cast, comprised of a who's who of western actors, including Barry Corbin, Buck Taylor, James Gammon, & Ken Curtis (who was actually one of John Ford's "boys"). I can't think of anything but praise for this film. If you're a fan of great westerns it's definitely for you, but also anyone who likes a good film of any kind where we have a hero not trying to be a hero, but rather just doing what he has to, you'll like it too.
