Trivia

Access to the interior of Montezuma's Castle has not been allowed to the public since 1951 for safety reasons and to protect the structures. At the end of the movie cast members are seen climbing ladders up into the structure and some camera placement indicates that they were inside some of the rooms. See more »

Goofs

When the Indians raid the ranch at the start of the movie all of the cattle in the stockade are Herefords. Herefords were not established as livestock in the western US until the 1880's when Charles Goodnight was finally able to breed them in the Texas panhandle a few other ranchers in the western US had tried in the late 1870's but all of those small herds died off after a short time.

Pesky redskins attack white settlers
21 March 2000 | by helpless_dancerSee all my reviews

A band of renegade Utes, led by a sneaky, low down, forked tongue white man, burn, loot, and pillage across the southwest. A rugged settler and the Army go after the elusive skunk and his gang of dirty rats and meet in a blazing gun battle in the mountains. Above average western.
