At the end of the credits a passage from the poem HORATIUS was included. "And how can man die better than facing fearful odds, For the ashes of his fathers, And the temples of his Gods." See more »
The film is explicitly set in the summer of 1863; Custer was not in Kansas at that time, as this film says he was, but more than 1000 miles east of Kansas in Pennsylvania, leading his Union cavalry unit in the Battle of Gettysburg. See more »
I saw this movie as a kid and loved it. I, too, have asked several friends and movie rental store managers (I thought it was called "The Man with the Golden Gun") and they all thought I was talking about the 007 movie. I'll buy or rent this movie in a heartbeat; It is definitely worth having on the family collection shelf.
Like this movie, there are two other TV movies I saw portions of as a kid that friends give me blank looks over when I describe them. I'd love to know their titles so I can track these movies down. They might be episodes from a Sci Fi TV series. The first one is about a pilot about to crash his jet in the desert, and a lady driving her convertible nearby who get trapped in a time freeze. Both his jet and her car are in a state of suspended momentum. The couple seem to be the only living creatures unaffected, and they join together venturing to a nearby complex to find out what's going on.
The other TV story is about a father and his teenage kids who were exploring the depths of a mine when something out in the world happened. They walk into a small town gas station to get some gasoline and find no one around--it's as if the town people had instantly disappeared and everything is abandoned. The gas pump doesn't work, so the dad siphons gas from a vehicle beside one of the pumps. Afterward, he lifts his head and is met with a woman's staring face pressed against the vehicle window. It was then that my dad said I had to go to bed.
Does anyone know about either story I'm talking about?
