Passed | | History, Western
When Edward Creighton leads the construction of the Western Union to unite East with West, he hires a Western reformed outlaw and a tenderfoot Eastern surveyor.
Originally, Laird Cregar was cast in this film in an undetermined role (possibly that of Doc Murdoch), but was unable to do the film due to an unfinished other project. He was replaced by George 'Gabby' Hayes, but Hayes then became ill and was himself replaced.
I like being alone.
Edward Creighton: The best place to be alone sometimes is in a crowd.
Vance Shaw: That's the way I figured it... until I ran into you.
In the opening sequence, Vance Shaw escapes a posse by riding through a herd of grazing wild buffalo. But in close-ups of the beasts, cowboys herding them can be seen in the background, despite no such cowhands in the establishing long shots of the herd.
