Trivia

The sequences on both Artemus Gordon's and Dr. Loveless' trains interiors were shot on sets at Warner Bros. The train exteriors were shot in Idaho on the Camas Prairie Railroad. The Wanderer is portrayed by the Baltimore & Ohio 4-4-0 No. 25, one of the oldest operating steam locomotives in the U.S. Built in 1856 at the Mason Machine Works in Taunton, Massachusetts, it was later renamed The "William Mason" in honor of its manufacturer. During pre-production the engine was sent to the steam shops at the Strasburg Railroad for restoration and repainting. The locomotive is brought out for the B&O Train Museum in Baltimore's "Steam Days". See more »

Quotes

Dr. Arliss Loveless: Why y'all look like you've seen a ghost? It's me, dear friends - alive and kicking! Well, alive, anyway. We may have lost the war, but heaven knows we haven't lost our sense of humor! No, not even when we've lost a lung, a spleen, a bladder, two legs, thirty-five feet of small intestine, and our ability to reproduce - all in the name of the South! - do we EVER LOSE OUR SENSE OF HUMOR!

The worst film I have seen in years
14 August 1999 | by DC-27See all my reviews

This has to be the worst film I have seen for many years. Was it supposed to be a comedy? I think I laughed once, and chuckled a couple of times, at most. A James Bond spoof as the director claims? You must be joking! An action adventure? Only if you like your plots ludicrous! A western? Hardly. A new genre? I can't see anyone else following in this diabolical film's footsteps.

The special effects might have been clever but they were also bizarre and stupid. Kenneth Branagh's performance was so over the top it was laughable (but not in a comedy type of way). I couldn't wait for it to end. If you are thinking if going to see this, a word of advice - don't!
