Storyline

After a card shark is caught cheating, he is taken out and lynched by the drunkards he was playing against. Soon afterwards, the men who were in the lynch mob start being murdered, one after another; all by hanging, strangling, or smothering. Who will be killed next and who is responsible? Is it one of the original party seeking to cover their accursed deed, or perhaps the mysterious Rev. Jonathan Rudd, who has recently arrived in town? Written by Alfred Jingle

Did You Know?

Trivia

The casting of Dean Martin and Robert Mitchum produced no chemistry on screen or off. Martin stayed in his trailer all the time watching television when they were not filming, and the critics felt he had just phoned in his performance. See more »

Goofs

Despite most of the men during the 1880s having facial hair, the film shows surprisingly few men who do. Being clean shaven in eras before running water was difficult and the custom was for most men to have full beards and mustaches. See more »

Quotes

Van Morgan: I didn't hear you say amen.
Little George: I don't believe in it.

Great sleeper western
3 September 2001 | by occupant-1See all my reviews

The corrosion of any sort of quality in the screenwriting of recent decades makes tight plotting a surprise wherever one finds it. Here it is. The ongoing verbal duel between Martin and Mitchum is Shakespeare compared to the posturing of recent tough-guy flicks. Also see Martin's acting in "Rio Bravo" to find significant talent in an often-overlooked comic actor.
