The version of the film prepared for US television cuts several scenes involving nudity violence and bad language, but restores 17 minutes of footage from the cutting room floor. Added scenes include Larry Hagman's entire role as a sheriff who runs Warren Oates out of town. See more »
To call this picture a Western is to diminish it, although it is in fact a Western; to call it a picture about male bonding is to do likewise, although it is most assuredly about that. It is so much more. Like the greatest works of art in any narrative medium, it concerns human relationships, including a person's relationship with the self. Because the story is presented with unrelieved seriousness it will not come close to appealing to everyone - but neither will the classic novels, plays, poems, etc. As an example of cinematic art, this obscure film belongs among the greats. All aspects of filmmaking are handled with a firm but sensitive touch. Its obscurity is difficult to explain, and impossible to justify.
