PG-13 | | Action, Adventure, Biography
In 1890, a down-and-out cowboy and his horse travel to Arabia to compete in a deadly cross desert horse race.
Sheikh Riyadh asks Hopkins if he would like to play cards. Hopkins declines, claiming he's not much of a gambler. In real life, Omar Sharif was an internationally recognized bridge player and casino patron.
Frank T. Hopkins:
C'mon little brother. Checkout time. Yeah.
While the train is pulling out prior to Hopkins getting off it shows the rail cars using a knuckle coupler. Although this coupler was not required by law in the US until 1893, 3 years after the movie takes place, it was invented in 1863 and used by some railroads before legally required.
The film begins with a "Touchstone Pictures presents" credit, and the logo only appears at the end.
