Trivia

The first scene of Swann in the Old West shows him riding as a brilliant sun oranges up the sky. Symbolically this welcomes the audience back to 1877(19th century) just like the orange or yellowish tint found in Old West and Victorian photos, daguerreotypes and still portraiture. See more »

I grew up on this movie.
24 August 2003 | by See all my reviews

I loved every minute of it, when HBO showed Timerider, I watched it everytime like I see it the first time, it perfectly fit my interest in motorcycles, it was funny (poor old guy), endless enjoy watching it, Years after, I was searching to get this movie, had hard time to find it, and I bought it on a used video tape for $70 bucks, later I find it on DVD, I bought that too. I still watch it ones in a while.
