The movie would be the only NBC TV movie Reba McEntire worked on, and later worked on different TV movies that aired on CBS. This movie was also the only title in the 'Gambler' series to have premiered on NBC, instead of CBS. See more »
The film is set during Theodore Roosevelt's tenure as President. That would have been between 1901 and 1909. It is stated that "Diamond" Jim Brady is promoting a big boxing match between "Gentleman" Jim Corbett and John L. Sullivan. Corbett fought Sullivan, but in 1892. The events depicted in the film happened in two entirely different eras. See more »
Ah, Mr. Hawkes. I heard you were here in Juarez.
And I heard that you were patrolling this neck of the woods. My information was good.
What's good is when a man can mix business with pleasure.
My business is your pleasure, unless you're too tired to play.

Kenny Rogers has done it again. I found this to be an enjoyable film that pays homage to just about every western in the history of American television. Be sure to pay close attention to Paul Brinegar as "Cookie" when he does his monologue. You may remember him from "Rawhide" when he played Wishbone. It's a hoot and a holler. I had to go back and play that part again because it was so funny. I'm glad he lived long enough to appear in this film. That monologue had me rolling on the floor with laughter. Sit back and enjoy seeing some of your favorite western TV stars as they appear here in their respective roles. Reba is delightful here as the leading lady.
