Quotes

Enwright: Well, Mr. Brady, I realise that you wanted something from me, but I didn't know just what it was, so I did a little checking up, too - on you. You do have an amazing array of friends - gamblers, swindlers, brawlers, sportsmen, pugilists, ladies of the theater. Doesn't make you seem sound a saint, does it, Brady?
Diamond Jim Brady: To get your railroad into Samantha, Mr. Enwright, the last person in the world you need is a saint.
Enwright: The last person I need is you.

I had the good fortune to be in this one; it was my first movie experience.
22 July 2014 | by See all my reviews

We met at 2:30 in the morning. W got our outfits for the day. We got aboard a bus and then drove north of Durango about 22 miles to Rockwood, turned down a road, and in a few minutes were on a valley near a railroad train and track. It was probably 22 degrees when we arrived and it warmed up to 58 later in the day. We waited and waited but shooting would not begin til after sunrise, the best hours of the day. At that moment it was an odd experience to be out in the cold filming, for which we were paid $20 for the day, but I look back now and see it was an amazing experience. I met Dale Robertson and many other well-known actors, who were as bored as the rest of us. I wish I had brought cards to play a few hands with others, but instead I stood around watching while the big hands like Robertson would flip half dollars against the rocks to pass the time--you won if your Franklin hit closest to the center of the circle.
