When henchman Al guards Tom Duncan all tied up with his hands behind his back, Duncan's horse shows up, and Duncan clearly sees him through an open window. However, when Duncan backs up to the window to have the horse chew through the rope around his wrists, the window is completely covered by a pair of curtains. See more »

The worst bar fight in the history of cinema
5 January 1999 | by Moonie-4See all my reviews

This movie is a classic "MST3K" movie. Nonsensical cuts and segues make following this movie nearly impossible. This movie contains, bar none, the worst bar fight in the history of movies (ironically, Guinn "Big Boy" Williams was in the classic western "Dodge City", which contains one of the best barroom brawls in movie history), with disappearing people, props, and cuts in action that follow no form of chronological continuum. That said, I can only say that I wish I had this classic clunker on tape.
