Trivia

Ava Gardner complained about the very hard climate conditions where the air conditioning was missing. So the hotel owner offered her his own small house out of town. See more »

Goofs

When Jose throws a knife closely past Barton's head, the knife zips past Jose before his arm finishes the throwing motion. This is probably because the knife was either mechanically propelled or thrown by an off-screen expert to make the stunt safer than it would be if the actor had thrown the knife. See more »

Quotes

Jose Esqueda: Can you imagine a smile on Barton's face?
Rio: It's the only place where a smile could be ugly.

One of those films that stays in your memory . . .
27 August 2016 | by stevepbSee all my reviews

Even though it's not great, Quinn's performance is memorable and he really looks - and plays - the part.

I'm also intrigued by a couple of brief scenes in this film - a wide shot of a cavalry fort and the shot of mounted troopers riding out look awfully like they came from "She Wore A Yellow Ribbon". Did John Ford help the producers fill a couple of small gaps?

Howard Keel looked much more at home in "Pagan Love Song".

Robert Taylor looks like he wore his "Billy the Kid" duds again.

It's difficult to find a good, crisp copy of the film, but worth the effort.
