At one point Barnum tells Larkin of 100 head of cattle "down at the Thompson ranch at South Fork". South Fork was the name of the ranch of "Jock Ewing" (Jim Davis, who plays Case Silverthorne here) on the TV series Dallas (1978). See more »
I just did remember of Jim Davis on small supporting roles on several series and movies, here he got the top billing with Merry Anders, the movie is usual B-western with a satisfying plot where a former gambler Case Silverthorne (Jim Davis) bought fifty per cent of a farm's cow without had known the real owner, just it sounds a bit strange business to believe, well arriving nearby the city he found a hanged man and the Marshall Dex Harwood (Mark Allen) fainted and slight wounded, although the grateful honest Marshall Dex seeing Case is playing cards on the bonfire, he warning Case that just allow clean games on his town, Case explains that is coming there to be a rancher from now on showing a letter as a true evidence of the sale, then Dex tells to him that the hanged man was his late partner and he had just an useless little piece of paper on their hands, then they made an fair agreement, that the Marshall keeps a mouth shout for a while to him enlighten the facts previously, fine movie that hold us until the predicable ending!!
