A friend burned this onto a DVD for me, and I watched and enjoyed it earlier today.
There are lots of historical inaccuracies in the film, but I liked it, anyway. The guy playing Moody, Roy Emerton, was effective.
To cite just one small inaccuracy (not a spoiler) a reference is made to the first train going through the Rockies, its destination given as Vancouver. The first train was actually bound for Port Moody, at the eastern end of Burrard Inlet, and arrived there July 4, 1886. The first train into Vancouver, a few miles farther west, didn't get there until May of 1887.
