Two silver dollars play a part in this film. It is explained that they are "1794 Silver Dollars, the first from the US Mint." However what is actually displayed in the movie is the reverse side of a US silver dollar known as the Morgan Dollar, after its designer, George Morgan. This dollar was not minted until 1878 (Actually 1878-1904 and 1921.) Therefore, actual 1794 dollar coins were not shown. See more »
I've met a lot of men in my time. A woman they forget, a mine busting with gold, even the faces of their own children. But I've never met a man who forgot a grave he dug.

This is a western but the plot could be that of a film noir ,a thriller: a wealthy man in a wheelchair hires a gunfighter to find back his brother and heir;he probably won't live that long and he does not want his fortune to fall into the hands of an unscrupulous associate.
The story is a quest and the identity of the brother which I will not reveal of course, for it's one of the few surprises of the film, is a bit unexpected ,but all in all,makes sense .The female star,Linda Cristal has not really many things to do (except for a bath in her birthday's suit ,but no close shots!);Lorne Greene as his dad has not much to do either.
