Trivia

While filming Gregory Peck decided to become a cowboy in real life, so he purchased a vast working ranch near Santa Barbara, California - already stocked with 600 head of prize cattle. See more »

Goofs

When the first gang member lies in ambush, he is seen crawling past a large green shrub and behind broken blades of dry grass. After he is spotted by Jim Douglass and the camera cuts back to him, the exact same shot is repeated as though it is happening further along in the story. See more »

Quotes

Sheriff Sanchez: Ladies and gentlemen, there's no need for me to tell you - the emergency arose and the man appeared. Mr Douglass, it's not often a man gets to do so much for his neighbors and do it like you did. We want you to know we'll always be grateful... and in our hearts always.
Jim Douglass: Thank you... and in your prayers, please.

Not your typical western
16 December 2000 | by billdarceySee all my reviews

The first thing that let's you know this isn't what you expect in a western is Peck from the beginning seems more like his character in "Moby Dick" than "To Kill a Mockingbird" . Any movie with a twisted (and uncredited) performance by Joe DeRita ("Curly Joe") of the Stooges has to take off in strange directions . To give away too much of the plot would be cruel ("Sixth Sensish") . Ninety eight minutes well spent;still holds up after all these years (super cast of supporters);makes "The Searchers" seem normal.
