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 »

Great book, awful movie
1 February 2004 | by See all my reviews

Larry McMurtry's wonderful story of the early days of Gus McCrae and Woodrow Call has been transformed by the Hallmark Entertainment team into one of the worst film adaptations I've ever seen. All the blood and guts and dramatic intensity are gone. The scene where the boys have to ride through the buffalo herd to invite Buffalo Hump to parley is all of about 2 seconds long with no excitement whatsoever. In the book it was a nail-biting chapter that went on for about 20 pages. Don't waste your time. Just read the book instead. You'll be glad you did.
