Trivia

When the film was released some critics suggested that Steve McQueen had lost his charismatic screen presence after being away for too long. He had retired from acting after The Towering Inferno (1974), returning three years later to make An Enemy of the People (1978) which was never properly released. See more »

Goofs

In the opening sequence, the wording says, "In 1901 he drifted into Wyoming 'Territory'". Wyoming had been a state since 1890. See more »

Alternate Versions

UK cinema and video versions were cut by 39 secs by the BBFC to remove a horse-fall and to edit a scene of a man's head being blasted during a gunfight. The 2006 DVD release restores some cuts and is only missing 6 secs of the horse-fall. See more »

very good film a must see for non fiction fans
27 June 2001 | by myuturnSee all my reviews

This was a very good movie. One of my favorites of the west. I think it gives a good account of the actual event. I was in Cheyenne shortly after I saw the movie,the first time, and was able to find out a bit about the actual event.
