Storyline

A sharpshooting saddle tramp with a price on his head falls for the daughter of a wealthy ranch owner. He vows to win enough money in shooting contests to win her father's approval, but when he returns years later, he finds she has married another man who is jealous of her affections. The husband tries to have a murder warrant served on the drifter, shoots him in the back, and hires a gambler to murder the man. None of these attempts on the drifter's life kills him, and when the wife leaves him, the husband goes gunning for the drifter, now the star of a Wild West show. Written by Daivd Bassler

Trivia

Doc Bogardus (Ben Johnson) was a combination of two professional exhibition shooters who carried on a rivalry from 1877 to 1883. William Frank "Doc" Carver (1840-1927) and Captain Adam Henry Bogardus (1833-1913). The rivalry ended in 1883 when Carver out shot Bogardus in nineteen of the twenty-five sponsored contests between them. See more »

Quotes

Robert W. 'Bob' Halburton: The point is you two are the most startling commodity to hit the world since Mr. Judson's book on Hickok and Cody. You are certified celebrities now. The Cardiff/Rose books are out-selling all the other dime novels five to one. People are going to pay handsomely to see you take on the best shooters in the country.
Caleb Rice: Not to mention the side bets.
Hugh Cardiff: Caleb, you ought to quit while you're behind.

If you like westerns this is a great one
13 May 2005 | by steckleinvinitaSee all my reviews

This is the basic western of man meets girl, looses girl.

The cast is second to none. Mini Series on TV Sam Elliott plays Hugh Cardiff an ex-Buffalo hunter. With his shooting skills he starts the following the shooting competitions.

At the shooting competitions he meets Ben Johnson and Timothy Scott, the 3 become good friends.

The threesome get into trouble and help each other out.

For a historical flare, the threesome even meet Wild Bill Hickok and go into business together.

While long for a movie, if you like to just sit down and watch one for a couple/three nights this one is a great one.
