Notice anything about these posters? Kirk Douglas – among the greatest Western Film actors of all time, and who has an important and prominent role in the movie (two roles in fact!!) receives next to no Billing or on the posters. ????

      I see that Kirk had a hand in “Production” so maybe the Billing (or lack thereof) was his idea?? Hard to imagine, because his appearance would be a strong marketing point to my thinking.
