PG | | Drama, Western
In nineteenth century Oklahoma, two teen girls, fans of stories about outlaws, are on a quest to meet and join up with them. They find a shadow of a former gang and although disappointed, still try to help them escape from a vigorous Marshal.
Burt Lancaster's final western film.
When Bill Doolin hands a shotgun shell to the kid that wants to watch the approach to the town for him, he hands him a standard, red, 12 gauge shotgun shell that any 12 gauge owner today would know well. The problem is that it was only in the late 1960's that manufacturers began using a color coding scheme, originally red for 12 gauge, gold for 20 gauge. In Oklahoma in the 1890's it would not have been the color shown on screen.
