About the Movie
Frontier scout Jess Remsberg (Garner) bravely leads a wagon train through hostile territory to Fort Conchos. But underneath his valor, he has an ulterior motive: to settle a score with a man whom he believes killed his wife. When he arrives at the fort, Jess learns not only the shocking truth about the killer but also that the wagon train has come under Apache attack leaving Jess their only hope for survival.
Very Good Shoot Em Up Western
Good opening scene (gunfight) as all good westerns start. Actors Poitier, Garner, Weaver and Bill Travers are great in this flick. Very balanced commentary on the necessities/ills of 19th century expansion westward by focusing on individual hardship/hardluck stories. Multiple tight plotlines keep your interst throughout and ultimitely converge with satisfying resolutions in the suspenseful grand finale. I really like the musical score...hauntingly uplifting. Reminds me of a Morricone theme. Also, the stunts involving horses in this movie are some of the best I have ever seen! It's definitely worth 10 bucks. You'll watch it many times.
Great Film; Fabulous Soundtrack By Neal Hefti
This is a grim film; the tension builds all the way to the end.
However, the soundtrack is what hooks me every time I watch this movie. It was a rare Neal Hefti soundtrack and it's just a work of genius.
Why don't they release this entire soundtrack on CD? They already released it on vinyl.
one of the finest westerns ever filmed
The Score is very haunting and lends well to the action. It is filled with subplots. Garner wants to find the killer of his wife. Sidney just wants to get paid. Travers wants to become a general. Bibi wants her child,and the indians want to kill them all. Be sure to have a cool drink of water handy while watching this movie.
