Trivia

Mulcahey was a name used in Fort Apache but there was no Quinlin in a John Ford/ John Wayne film. There was however the name Quincannon used in a couple of Fords Trilogy. See more »

Goofs

The most likely reason Don Johnson's character keeps re-cocking his .45 is that blanks don't work well with real working semi-autos. But perhaps it was an intentional 'mistake' to add some drama to an already emotional scene, as the racking of the slide presages each kill shot. See more »

Quotes

Sgt. Thomas Mulcahey: Indians riding Cavalry mounts? My grandaddy'd never forgive me!
Sgt. James Shattuck: Well, when you get to hell... don't tell him.

A good movie for all ages...
23 May 2004 | by (Buenos Aires, Argentina) – See all my reviews

A fine movie, good plot and solid acting. I enjoyed this TV movie on a Sunday rainy afternoon. I particularly liked Don Johnson's performance.The mere idea of destroying 500 hundred horses for economic reasons is simply disgusting, so viewers will easily take sides. The eternal discussion between blind obedience and common sense is frankly depicted here, and the debate reopens again. The note that states -at the end of the film- that no animal has been hurt while shooting this movie is fitting, because at times you get the feeling that the horses are enduring quite an ordeal and facing death in the hands of those who are trying to save them. I warmly recommend this film, it is good for all ages.
