A group of unlikely traveling companions find themselves on the same stagecoach to Cheyenne. They include a drunken doctor, a bar girl who's been thrown out of town, a professional gambler, a traveling liquor salesman, a banker who has decided to embezzle money, a gunslinger out for revenge and a young woman going to join her army captain husband. All have secrets but when they are set upon by an Indian war party and then a family of outlaws, they find they must all work together if they are to stay alive.—garykmcd

Short Review

1966 version. Embarassing. A lot of silliness, or was it supposed to be 'character development, or 'comic relief? Very few serious moments in the first hour. Except the massacre in the 1st 5 minutes. Mostly really bad, despite All star cast, including KEENAN WYNN, Mike Connors, Slim Pickins, Bob Cummings, 'Red Buttons ' & Stephanie Powers, an old chunky VAN HEFLIN, & ANN MARGRET as the saloon prostitute with a heart o'gold. There was a tense scary scene near the beginning when they had to take the stagecoach on a perilous road, downhill, in a night time driving rainstorm.Not much more about Indians attacking stagecoaches.Bing's role was worst, a 'funny' alcoholic doctor. The movie seemed to think alcoholism & drunks drinking was fun and entertaining.JOHN WAYNE played 'The RINGO KID' in the original, but Alex Cord in this one was NO John Wayne.Finally a tense shootout at the end. But this doesn't hold a candle compared wid the original 1939 version. which I gave 5 stars, cuz it is the undisputed classic.Sorry saw this '66 'remake' 4.26.2021 on THE GRIT Channel 30.3.
