The classic rock band Bad Company named itself after this film. When Paul Rodgers (ex-Free) formed a band with Mick Ralphs (ex Mott the Hoople) in 1973, the first public warm up gigs were in Germany. Just prior to the gig they saw the film. When asked what the band was called, they remembered the poster, and adopted the name. See more »

People who put down westerns have probably never seen Barbarosa, McCabe and Mrs. Miller, One-eyed Jacks, or this fine film. Released in 1972, Bad Company reflects some of the values of its day (thus proving the value of the western genre). Our heroes begin by dodging the draft in the Civil War, then proceed across the plains in a manner true to history if not to romance. But the basic theme is that of parentless youths set adrift to discover their own values. Superb acting throughout -- veteran Jim Davis, for instance -- and excellent production on a small budget. My favorite quote: an outlaw about to be hanged demonstrates some fancy gun-work with an unloaded revolver. He wows the audience, hands the gun back to Jim Davis, and mutters,"Hell, I'm the oldest whore on the block."
