Goofs

When the group is deciding whether or not to go on to Lordsburg from Apache Wells, The Marshal's Stampede string on his hat changes sides. The angled support beam on the door behind him changes directions as well. The film was obviously printed in reverse for one part of the scene. See more »

Quotes

Marshal Curly Wilcox: If I deputized an escaped convict, I'd be run outta the territory.

Sad. Very, very sad . . .
29 December 2001 | by BrianGSee all my reviews

Some movies just shouldn't be remade. Gone With the Wind, Casablanca . . . and Stagecoach. For some reason, though, Hollywood can't keep its hands off it. It was remade (badly) in 1966, and this one is even worse. It looks like a bunch of wannabe cowboys with some money decided they could make a western better than John Ford could (Willie Nelson was the executive producer of this), and they couldn't possibly have been more wrong. Everything, absolutely EVERYTHING, about this movie is pathetic. Ted Post is normally a first-rate director, especially of westerns (he did most of the "Rawhide" series with Clint Eastwood), but he either had a really bad day, or (what seems to be more likely) everyone in the cast simply ignored what he told them; there doesn't appear to be any discipline at all in this film. Everybody keeps trying to out-ham everyone else, or they're either so laid-back they're practically comatose. The photography isn't particularly good, the editing is horrendous, the scenery around Old Tucson (where this was shot) is completely wasted . . . and on and on. A really sad waste of time and money. Skip it.
