When Deputy Briggs confronts Louis outside the pharmacy by pointing his sidearm at him, he cocks his Smith & Wesson double-action pistol. No properly trained peace officer would do that -especially a double action semi auto -as it is unnecessary and makes the weapon extremely unsafe. Also, every pistol in this movie seems to make the same cocking sound, Louis's single action Colt, Brigg's and Sheriff Deegan's double-action Smith & Wessons. Neither weapon makes that sound when cocked. See more »
I was thrilled to see this great film released on DVD. It's such a shame it wasn't given proper presentation when it was first released theatrically. They have done a fantastic job with the DVD. So many special features. The Director's cut, the featurettes, even a section on the authentic native American costumes, all give a fascinating insight into the difficulties in making a movie like this. My hat's off to Tab Murphy's writing and direction, and of course Tom Berenger (the perfect Lewis Gates)and Barbara Hershey. Thanks too, to HBO for producing a fine DVD.
