Storyline

Marshall Cowan and the mercenary Miller are both separately hunting the outlaw Catlow. During the Civil War both Cowan and the always smiling Catlow were comrades. Catlow helps Cowan, when he is wounded in the right leg by an arrow from the Apaches, despite Cowan hunting him. Catlow escapes with help of his gang. Catlow then robs a Mexican gold shipment, worth $ 2,000,000. Catlow flees with the stolen gold through the dangerous territory of the Apaches who, besides Miller, Cowan and the Mexican cavalry, are hunting for him and his gang of outlaws. Written by Robert

Trivia

In Catlow (1971), Leonard Nimoy plays a bounty hunter who carries a Winchester Model 1892 "Mares Leg" Rifle as his main weapon, in a tribute to the Western series, Wanted: Dead or Alive (1958-1961), in which Steve McQueen's bounty hunter used as a main weapon. See more »

Goofs

Shortly after Cowan is given a beautiful Palomino (light brown horse with an ample blond mane) as a gift from Christina to replace the horse he lost while saving her brother's life, he rides off into the desert in pursuit of Catlow on a (dark brown) Quarter Horse. See more »

Quotes

Cowan: Well, you see, all I own is a couple of guns and a tin star and, of course, a beautiful new horse and saddle.
Christina: Is that how you judge the worth of a man? By how much he owns?

Enjoyable Louis L'Amour book made into a movie
26 April 2007 | by dafiscusSee all my reviews

Light hearted and humorous. Old friends on opposite sides of the law. The friendship is obvious and presents humorous situations throughout the movie as they try to outwit each other. Leonard Nimoy is a cold hearted villain that hates Bijah Catlow and throughout the movie tries to kill him. The movie follows the Louis L'Amour story of the same name pretty closely. US Marshal Ben Cowan spends the movie trying to outwit and capture Catlow, but also tries to protect him from Nimoy. Catlow tries to locate lost Confederate gold and is a wild cowboy with a good heart. If you like Louis L'Amour westerns novels, and Yul Brynner westerns then you will enjoy this delightful movie.
