Trivia

Wilford Brimley, as Joe Gill, carries an unusual Evans repeating rifle. The Evans rifle, invented by Warren R. Evans of Thomaston, Maine, was produced only from 1873 to 1879. Gill, who admits to not being a very good shot, says he likes it because he can fire 28 shots before having to reload. See more »

Goofs

When Beau Dorn is riding out of town at sunrise to kill Rafe, he stops in the street to look at Anne Rodney, and they are both brightly lit from the side. However, the sun is only rising at Beau's back and is not above the horizon yet, the sky is still fairly dark, and there isn't enough natural sunlight to light them up that way. See more »

excellent tv western
4 February 2001 | by (SW Florida) – See all my reviews

Tom Selleck, kinda like Sam Elliott, was born to star in Westerns. He and the rest of this marvellous cast bring another Louis L'Amour western to vibrant life. Tom is great as the straight-shooting (in both ways) hero who does whatever it takes to keep his promise to a dying friend. Mark Harmon is delightfully smarmy as the vile villain, and Virginia Madsen makes a great schoolmarm. Production values are very high for a TV movie, and the photography is gorgeous. Like in all good westerns, the scenery almost becomes another character. Kudos to Turner for their continued efforts to produce topnotch television drama!
