Watched it last night and happy that I did. About all I can say is it was interesting.
The first thing I noticed were the costumes. The hats looked like those cheap hats you’d buy for a kid in a battleground gift shop. They were awful! The story is rambling and highly violent, but it keeps you on the edge of your seat every time the outlaws are stopped by a posse or by Union troops.
The treatment by the Union troops toward men still in Confederate uniform shows that none of the people involved in the film apparently had any indepth knowledge of the War. They’re always allowed to pass, unmolested, in sparkling clean Confederate uniforms, fully armed.
By that time, no one had nice uniforms and the hostility between the two groups was still high. No way they would have been able to travel like that, especially with bushwackers still afoot, with friendly apologies and pats on the back.
Poor old Al Muluck. Enjoyed his role and Aldo Sambrell, as well.
I rate it 2 1/2 stars out of five.
