      That long fight is a rather amazing scene! Interesting cast.

    Garry thinks you are right, that it IS the longest bar fight in western movies. Was remade later. Don’t know if they kept the super bar fight, though.

      Aha .. just a guess on my part.
      Interesting to see Scott play the badguy. In another film (same year) called Pittsburgh, Wayne plays the badguy and Scott plays the goodguy.

      It was that loooong fight that caught my attention. I was reading someone’s opinion of the movie that it’s not a great Western (?) – though it definitely has some Star Power.

    I timed it. That fight scene was 14 minutes long. And I wondered if anyone caught the sheer blouse Ms. Dietrich wore?

      “14 minutes” !! Yep, that’s gotta be a record.
      “Ms. Dietrich” was no prude.
