Trivia

The hauntingly beautiful background music in the movie was mostly Norwegian folk songs - Bla Tonar Fra Lom & Jenta I Saueflokken and although, the "Plain People" in the movie appear to be something like Amish or Mennonites - there were no Norwegian settlements of this kind in the US. Most of these groups came from Germany & Switzerland. Most Norwegians coming to the US during this time period were Lutherans. Also, the hymn they sing during the barn religious ceremony was sung in Norwegian. See more »

Goofs

The bullet that the doctor extracts from Johnny Gault is a modern style - a semi-wadcutter. Most pistol bullets in the 1880s were round nose style. See more »

Finally a breath of fresh air
27 April 2004 | by (Sacramento, California) – See all my reviews

The Outsider is a wonderful movie and a joy to watch due mainly to Tim Daly and Naomi Watts. Tim Daly has never looked better. The baby face and preppy look transformed. He instantly got my attention and I was riveted for the duration. His acting was natural, he was charming, humorous, and, yes, sexy. I couldn't take my eyes off his face when on screen. Naomi Watts was beautiful and believable and the chemistry between the two main characters extraordinary. I would recommend this movie to anyone who would like a different kind of western. One that focuses on the romance, rather than the violence. I purchased this movie which is something I rarely do. I liked it that much. Truly a breath of fresh air.
