Random Trivia For This Title:

  • The film was to have been Steve McQueen's follow-up to The Hunter, but he fell ill shortly after filming The Hunter, so the project was scrapped.
  • The infamous gun that is used by the main character Matthew Quigley is a replica model 1874 Sharps Buffalo Rifle. Just as the movie states, it is fitted to fire .45-110 paper patch black powder cartridges, and has a barrel length of 34 inches, four inches longer than the original. The original rifle used in the movie was made by one of the replica makers, and a total of three were provided.
