The cast and crew were filming at John Wayne's ranch in Durango, Mexico, when it was announced that the veteran star had died in Los Angeles. They held a one-minute silence in his honor. See more »

Goofs

When Bill Doolin hands a shotgun shell to the kid that wants to watch the approach to the town for him, he hands him a standard, red, 12 gauge shotgun shell that any 12 gauge owner today would know well. The problem is that it was only in the late 1960's that manufacturers began using a color coding scheme, originally red for 12 gauge, gold for 20 gauge. In Oklahoma in the 1890's it would not have been the color shown on screen. See more »

Wonderful old-fashioned family western
2 August 2001 | by ralphsampsonSee all my reviews

Amanda Plummer and Diane Lane are perfect complements in the title roles. Cattle Annie, as played by Plummer, is assertive, questioning, and somewhat rambunctious. In contrast, Lane's character is a lot like Barbara i One Day At A Time. The two young ladies get in the middle of Legendary Marshal Bill Tilghman's attempts to take the gang led by Burt Lancaster. The dialogue is sensational, and the acting, including terrific performances by Scoot Glenn and John Savage, could not be better. This is one to savor.
