Jim Brown (El Condor), Raquel Welch (Fathom) and Burt Reynolds (White Lightning) set the screen ablaze in this intense and muscular western, bursting with rousing nonstop action and humorous charm.

Tom Gries (Breakheart Pass) directed and co-wrote this rousing action-adventure with Clair Huffaker (Rio Conchos) based on a novel by Robert MacLeod (The Appaloosa). The Stellar cast includes Fernando Lamas (Jivaro) Dan O’Herlihy (Robocop), Spaghetti Western legend, Aldo Sambrell (Navajo Joe) and soap opera icon Eric Braeden (Victor Newman of The Young and the Restless).
