Cookie mentions he would like to have a business in San Francisco. However, since the film is set in the 1820s, at that time San Francisco was known as Yerba Buena. It didn't adopt the name of San Francisco until 1846. See more »
I see something in this land I haven't seen before. Pretty much everywhere has been touched by now. But this is still new, more nameless things around here than you can shake an eel at!

For those viewers who believe the pace of the film is "slow", yes, there are no car chases. Instead, this film has a depth of character and original development that creates a mood so beautifully of the time and place. It is refreshing to have a plot that keeps the viewer's interest throughout. When the majority of movie offerings out there are pure trash, this film is a real treat.
