A quiet and peaceful community in the Dominion of Canada is shaken up by the arrival of a wounded and stinky gun-toting American cowboy, simply known as The Montana Kid, wanted for the alleged killing of seven men. A subsequent clarification reveals that his real name is Sean Rafferty, and he admits to killing, not seven, but eleven men. Things only get worse after Sean gets in the bad books of the local militia, and with armed bounty hunters hot on his trail, challenges the local unarmed blacksmith, Jack Smith, to a duel - wild west style!

The film is dedicated to "Hemshaw and Jasway who galloped valiantly in the service of the film". The horses Hemshaw and Jasway were killed by a freak lightening strike some weeks after filming was complete. See more »
During the shoot out scene, stacked firewood can be seen in the background that has been sawn into pieces rather than chopped. Saws were used only for cutting dimensioned wood. See more »
First of all I have to give it ten stars out of a possible ten. Uniquely written about a gunfighter having a difficult time picking a fight. Actors well chosen, music nicely arranged, a film where we see people as people. Very entertaining. Intelligently done. I could never tell what was about to happen next, so in vivid contrast to most westerns that I have seen it was in no way clichéd, at least not to me. You might want to watch the credits at the end or you will miss out on some things. And the film has a worthwhile message. I do disagree with some of the other reviewers. I would not say low budgeted as that has a negative connotation. Perhaps the film simply didn't require a high cost of production and had no gratuitous spending. Nothing cheap in what I saw. As for no foul language maybe those reviewers were munching on chips each time that certain word (ahem, ending in ck) was used as well as several other such expressions which to the merit of the film came out very naturally, or maybe they heard a different audio track from what I heard.
