In one version, there is a jump from a scene where the party of 5 has stopped for a rest with their horses tied up to a rope, to a scene where the party is seen to approach the town of Tomahawk Gap with the wounded Kid riding the only one horse. Three horses have disappeared. See more »
Good small cast Western with no good guys
An enjoyable Western with a small cast of white characters and rather more Indians, who follow the routine of seemingly being willing to take many casualties for relatively small gain. Another cliché is the improbable Indian girl played by a non-Native American, in this case a Mexican,María Elena Marqués. It appears from the plot that Navajo girls get taught to use the bow and arrow, but this apart the character might as well have been a Mexican anyway.
Hodiak, in one of his last films before his premature death, is suitably rugged, and Ray Teal gets a fuller role than usual; in fact he's the nearest to a good guy among all the men in the film, and even then he's served time in Yuma Prison and is still greedy for the loot.
