Originally meant to be a vehicle for Maria Montez and Jon Hall, but Montez didn't like the script and refused to do the picture. Universal replaced her with Yvonne De Carlo and dropped Hall in favor of Rod Cameron. DeCarlo ultimately replaced Montez at Universal and appeared in many of the studio's "sword and sandal" epics originally intended for Montez. See more »
This is an atypical western. Here there is more humour than suspense, and humour of a timeless nature. When a man loves a woman, or vice versa, there are always trouble spots and the inevitable consequences of the loving union. Take the timeless difficulties between the genders and the mischief of their offspring and you have quite an entertaining and engrossing story. There is a thrilling ending to this romp in the west, and definitely some exaggerated but not politically correct philosophies that reflect the attitudes prevalent in the era when the movie was made. But it is all good fun!
