Angie Dickinson's character is called Laura Breckenridge in this movie. During the era that this film was made, there was a controversial movie made called Myra Breckinridge (1970). However, that movie was actually released about a year after this film came out. See more »

Not even Reynolds is able to muster up charm in this fairly dreary western. Actually, though set in the wild west, the movie is more of a caper movie than a western. This wouldn't have been so bad had the capering been exciting and executed with vigor, but it isn't. Some clumsy filming techniques and the production values make it resemble a television production of its era.
