You shouldn't be in a place like this. How long has it been?
Does it matter?
It matters to me.
I remember a preacher once said, 'Nobody goes to hell unless they really want to.' I ended up here because I really wanted to.
I don't think so. We live... and learn.
That's just it. I wanted to live. Then I died... a long time ago.

The UK release was cut, a compulsory cut was required to a scene of animal cruelty (in this case, sight of a horse being made to fall in a dangerous manner). In line with the Cinematograph Films (Animals) Act 1937. Following this cut, the edited version of the film was classified PG without further changes. See more »
I have just seen this old western on spike TV (UK) today 10/11/16, it was fun to pick out the older stars who at one time or another were top billing in their day.
I spotted the Sheriff was Johnny Mack Brown, Richard Arlen, Buster Crab, Bob Steel who was a B movie star in his early days I did not spot that the love interest was Audrey Dalton, until the credits rolled, all in all a good film if a touch one paced. Dan Duryea was good value as usual, his best roles for me were when he opposite Audie Murphy, they did a few films together and seemed to hit it off. I try to keep up with the movie channels here, in the hope that some of these old westerns are shown, we have nothing to match these old films today, and quite frankly there are not the suitable actors around who could do these parts.
