Goofs

There are several firearms throughout the mini-series that should not be there as they didn't exist at the time. Bigfoot Wallace was using a Remington model 1858 rifle, but as the model name indicates that rifle was not available until 1858, Dead Man's Walk takes place in 1842. Several people, including Captain Salazar and Gus, are seen using Colt Walker revolvers, but they were not available until 1847. See more »

Quotes

Long Bill Coleman: Me, I'll shoot myself in the head if I got time.
Bigfoot Wallace: Well, that could go wrong, too. Don't be sticking no gun in your mouth unless it's a shotgun.
Augustus McCrae: Why not? It's hard to miss your head with a gun in your mouth.
Bigfoot Wallace: No, it ain't. That bullet could ricochet off a tooth... come out your ear. You'd be still healthy enough to torture for a week. You shove the butt of a gun against your eyeball... and pull. Now, that's sure. Then if some squaw comes along and chews your privates, you won't know the difference.

A handsome production with a great whipping scene
29 April 1999 | by dinky-4See all my reviews

Larry McMurtry seems to be turning "Lonesome Dove" into a cottage industry, but this "prequel" works fairly well on its own terms. It's mounted in good-looking style and has a first-rate whipping scene wherein Jonny Lee Miller, stripped to the waist, is tied to the back of a wagon and given 100 lashes, the first 50 by one man and the second 50 by another. When that first lash hits Miller's bare back, you not only see it and hear it -- you FEEL it!
