"5/1 L.Q. Jones and Strother Martin leave Jason Robards to die in the desert without water or anything, but little do they know, Robards finds a water-hole somewhere in that desert - which nobody else knows about and which is the only place with water for a 50 miles or something like that - and starts a financially successful rest-stop there in no time, while just waiting for the duo who backstabbed him to stop by there. That plot itself could work, but this is light and fancy free Sam Peckinpah"

"A lovable and funny western movie. Cable Houge is really an alter ego of the director. Underrated. 7.5/10"

"Peckinpahilta erilainen elokuva. Hienoa kuvausta ja hauskaa komediaa, niin slapstickia kuin lyyristä. Eipä siitä sen enempää, toimi."
