Night mare
This is an offbeat western ,one of the rare ones which does not have a Hollywood happy end . The screenplay features historical characters ,including Calamity Jane ,played by the wonderful Yvonne De Carlo ,who is as much at ease in the part of a Wild West girl as she is when she 's Countess of Castiglione or Mosis's wife .

According to IMDb reliable source ,the two "heroes" never met in real life ,but it does not matter.In the movie,Sam is a born loser,illiterate ,deprived of his money by a wicked uncle,and a dreaming man .All he does backfires on him and even with the help of two women in love with him,he is pursued by fate .Against all odds ,he does believe his mare is still alive but the pursuit of his dream is in vain.Howard Duff 's wooden acting does not get in the way for his character becomes an outlaw by accident and most of the time,he is overtaken by events.
