Trivia

Lane Frost was originally going to perform the stunts for the main character (H.D. Dalton), and his wife Kellie Kyle-Frost (now Macy) was working as stunt coordinator for the film at the time of Lane's death at the 1989 Frontier Days in Cheyenne, WY. After Lane's death, his good friend Tuff Hedeman performed the stunt work. See more »

Goofs

When HD is shaving in the mirror and his Dad is watching, he cuts himself several times, the first one in the middle of his left cheek. Afterward he is shown with bits of toilet paper stuck to the cuts, but the one on the left cheek is almost under his ear instead of where he actually cut it. See more »

Uneven direction or bad editing? No flow to the story line.
9 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What should have been a good story with a capable cast was actually hard to watch for me. Each scene seemed to be performed without any regard to the ones previous or following, and HD actually calls Jolie "Jolly" at one point (and no one caught such a basic mistake, which could have been easily corrected in post production audio work).

The ending was predictable, and disappointing in its execution. Once the final scene was underway, the acting ended, and the audience was never treated to anything like a finale that would've tied up the loose ends.

Unfortunate, given the talent available (and the cameo by Mickey Rooney).

Sheesh.
