The weapon Cannonball uses in the bar fight at the beginning of the film is a bolas. It is a throwing weapon made of weights connected by a cord, most famously used by gauchos in South America. See more »
Well, this is fine! The manager of my stage line has to take time out for a barroom brawl.
Well, a couple of men jumped old Hank Cardigan and I couldn't just stand there. I had to help out.
Oh, sure you did. You have to defend every down and out jailbird, but you know our business has to go on - and on schedule!

Some social problems are here to stay. No one one wants to give an ex-con a break. Once upon a time Hank Cardigan was a big time outlaw. Now he is a old man needing a job but no one will hire him. Hank gets a break to ride shotgun on a stagecoach. but on his first run the coach is held up by the Duke Corliss gang. Corliss had been trained by Hank and now has brought Hank's son into the gang. Hank foils the robbery but recognizes his son as one of the bandits. Hank tracks the gang to one of his old hideouts. He tries to convince his son to leave the gang but to no avail. Duke Corliss tells Hank that he will cut the kid loose and convince him to go straight, but does Hank plan to turn them in. Hank believes in snitches get stitches, he isn't a stool pigeon. Duke's real plan is to use Tom and get Hank and Tom either killed or sent to jail. A perfect opportunity arises as the town people plan a reenactment of Hank's last big robbery. but Duke plans to use the event to pull of a real robbery and have Hank blamed for it.
If you are real, real old (like me) you will recognize some of the bit players like Myron Healey even if you don't know the names. This film is best for nostalgia aficionados who are trying to recapture memories of Saturday matinees that featured cartoons, a serial episode or two, and at least two Westerns. Yippee yi yo kayah..
