Trivia

The film is set during the American Civil War (1861-65). Ike Clanton is killed early on. The real Ike Clanton was killed in 1887, and was famous for his participation in the 1881 "Gunfight at the OK Corral" in Tombstone, AZ, that involved Wyatt Earp. His family did not move to the Arizona territory until after the war ended. The real Ike Clanton would have been under 20 years of age circa 1865, as he was born in 1847. James Craig was 56 when he played Clanton. See more »

Pretty dismal effort
27 June 2016 | by King_manSee all my reviews

With a well known cast, one would have hoped this would have at least reached the level of a B+ Western. Unfortunately, it struggled to make it to the B- range. The problems were myriad: a very standard plot, a bad musical score that grated, actors with no spark, and a final battle scene that was the antithesis of exciting. Without giving any spoilers, the plot involved various characters with hidden agendas all having converged on an Arizona town in the closing stages of the Civil War. Cowboys, Indians, Rebs, and Unionists all thrown together could have had a bit of life but here, the mix had no yeast and didn't rise. What should have been a climactic battle scene was a visual humor feast. The renegade Indians sat on their horses like targets at a Coney Island arcade but this was countered by townsmen not using any cover as they threw lead. In the usual B-Western tradition, a hero with a 6-gun was much more deadly than a Star Trek red-shirter with a rifle. All in all, it was depressing seeing these actors reduced to showing up for work in an effort like this one.
