Best duet in the history of Westerns. Only one that comes close is Gene Autry and Mary Lee doing "I'm An Old Cowhand".

PS Gag! Forget Angie. There were lots better-looking women and better female characters in Hollywood's West.

But we shouldn't forget little Carlos, who stood by Chance throughout the picture and showed up with a shotgun at a critical moment.

I always thought Leigh Brackett should have put a little scene after the shootout where everybody comes back and Consuelo, making a big fuss over Carlos for risking his neck, but proud of her man, looks over at Chance, who for once says the right thing, "I know. A man don't have to be tall to stand tall".

Ricky freakin' Nelson. There is nothing else to say.

He makes Michael J. Fox in BTTF III look positively normal for the time period by comparison.

But, as the sands of time run through my hour glass, I fear I won't manage to watch RB again. Of course, I did see it in the movie theater when it was first released, so there is that.
