In the final battle between the railroad crew and the Indians at the end of the movie, when the Indians are finally driven off and turn away to ride off, the firing from the railroad camp immediately stops, the Indians at the front wheel their horses around and begin galloping in the opposite direction away from the camp, and after several strides, suddenly two Indians closest to the camera pitch headfirst off their horses like they'd been shot, only there is no more gunfire.

Well, that's my hotel over there. It's usually full up, but I can take care of you now that Mr. Holly is changing his room.
Wrong. Holly isn't changing his room. He checked out.
No, he'll be occupying the downstairs rear. You see, I'm also the Oaktown's undertaker. And having my establishment on the premises, well, it saves so many steps.

The B-western Overland Pacific documents the struggle to build a railroad and how the whites are just as brutal as the natives. It seems like an early try at political correctness, and you can't fault the filmmakers for having the best of intentions.
Jock Mahoney headlines this frontier drama. Despite Mr. Mahoney's average amount of talent in the acting department, he does help bring subtle touches of realism to this picture. For example, when there is a brawl on the street and he brushes up against a building or a railing, we actually see dust fly. A lot of westerns are too clean; but the reality is that these old west towns are dirty and dusty.
