Quotes

Vance Reno: Listen, Brett, we didn't steal this money. We took it in battle, fair and square. It's what they call "spoils of war", like capturing a horse or anything else. We didn't know the war was over, and neither did the Federals. So it's still prize money.

solid debut by Elvis
15 August 2001 | by kwbucsfanSee all my reviews

This is definatley one of Elvis Presley's best movies. The plot is great, and a very strong supporting cast. When I see this movie, it's hard to believe that this is the same person who played in some of those pathetic movies later.
