I remember when this movie first came out. Most reviews were favorable. Sure, it wasn't in the same class as The Searchers or Rio Bravo, but the main point of the reviewers at the time was that it was refreshing because nothing was what it seemed, what you typically saw in a western didn't happen, and there was the hook at the end of the movie which gave the title a new meaning. Sure there were some poorly delivered lines, a few times you had to suspend your disbelief, but there were moments like Ben Johnson reprising his Oscar winning scene from The Last Picture Show and the Duke talking about the age of his saddle which had a double meaning. Not a great western, but a lot of fun with an ending left to your imagination and without any doubt!
