Quotes

Gil Favor: Dependin' on where you come from, you call steers brush splitters, cactus boomers, critters, rawhides, scalawags, or baccas. The drovers whose job it is to get 'em where they're goin' call 'em beeves. I'm one of those drovers. We've been pushin' this herd for almost five hundred miles, and it's still nearly twice that to Sedalia, Missouri. My name's Gil Favor, trail boss.

Peter Lorre as character Major Laurier
5 December 2018 | by ebertipSee all my reviews

Laurier, a Major in the Confederate army, has enslaved a group of Union officers, and has kept them enslaved into the year 1869. He supposedly is growing cotton in a narrow valley with no cotton gin around. Hard to say what is true here, summarized by Laurier's line: "I lied to you." Favor and Nolan are the major players in an implausible episode.
