All handguns shown are the Colt Single-Action Army Model of 1873. The Golden Spike was driven at Promontory Point in 1869, four years before this revolver model was made. See more »

They don't make 'em like this anymore. Everything you could want in a film: romance, wit, drama, action. Barbara Stanwyck and Joel McCrea make an incredible on-screen duo. The train wreck scene at the end is especially impressive. Kudos to Cecil B. Demille for this work of art. I wish I could give this movie more than 10 stars! :)
