The former soldier who becomes an outlaw and has never recovered from the Civil War is extremely common in Westerns - most obviously Clint Eastwood in "The Outlaw Josey Wales", 1976. See more »
The song that Graff repeatedly whistles, and is sung by the men accompanying him, is Unreconstructed Rebel aka Good Ol' Rebel. The song was not written until 1914, many years after the setting of the movie. See more »

When I first saw this movie I thought "what is Mickey Rourke doing making himself look slightly homosexual as a cowboy outlaw"!!? As I watched the movie though, it didn't matter how he looked, he was deadly. Probably the only criminal cowboy who could get away with that "dandy" look. I thought that the entire cast was great in their own parts, but once again, as with every movie he is in, Mickey Rourke stood out. It was back in the day, when I chanced upon watching "Rumble Fish", with Matt Dillon, Dennis Hopper, and (my then personal favorite), William Smith, that I noticed the Motorcycle Boy. He stole that movie, no problem. From then on out, it was because of Mickey Rourke that I watched any movie he was listed in. He is like the greatest American actor EVER.
