Trivia

Though this movie has often been called a "spaghetti western", it actually isn't. That term is applied to westerns that were filmed by European companies (usually Italian), with a European (usually Italian) cast and crew and shot in Spain, because its terrain closely resembles the northeast Mexico/southwest US area. Although this film was shot in Spain, it was filmed by an American studio (20th Century-Fox) with an American director, producer, writers and mostly American crew. Star Burt Reynolds' previous film, Navajo Joe (1966), would be properly regarded as a "spaghetti western", but not this one. See more »

Goofs

During the fight at the water tower, a hole is blown in the side of the water tank. The hole is approximately 4 ft. x 6 ft. that Lydecker climbs out of when he joins the fight. After the fight when the train is loaded with the Yaqui Indians and headed for town, the water tower is shown with the whole top of it blown off to the left of the screen. See more »

Quotes

Better than I thought it would be
7 April 2008 | by smatysiaSee all my reviews

I admit that I liked the film, rather more than I expected to. Jim Brown, while not a professional actor held his own for the most part, although his scenes with Raquel Welch seemed a little forced. This makes me think that acting is not really that hard to do acceptably, since so many non-actors have done OK at it. Welch does her part and looked wonderful. Burt Reynolds was at the top of his game here, before he became a world-wide phenomenon, still had to make his way ACTING. Fernando Lamas was suitably evil as the native general/governor trying to commit genocide on the poor, misunderstood, peaceful Indians. And I have to mention the beauty of the late Soledad Miranda. She brightened the screen in the short time she was on it.
