Alternate Versions

When originally released theatrically in the UK, the BBFC made cuts to secure a 'A' rating. 16 secs of cuts were made to the UK video version for release in 1988 to reduce the attempted rape of Maria by the bandit leader. The cuts were waived for the 2005 DVD. See more »

Names of 3 characters in this movie re-used in Lonesome Dove
26 June 2003 | by lyle-12See all my reviews

This is a pretty entertaining movie - not one of the best westerns any of these actors ever made, but it's always fun to watch Jimmy Stewart and George Kennedy do their thing. Dean Martin isn't bad, Raquel Welch looks great, but at this point she still needed to expand her talent. Entertaining plot, decent action, but the thing I think is most interesting are the names of three of the characters: The sheriff is July Johnson and his deputy's name is Roscoe, and the main villain's name is Dee, all names used in the same way in the great TV movie Lonesome Dove.
