Movie Quote Quiz

Prologue: A gun, like any other source of power, is a force for either good or evil, being neither in itself, but dependent upon those who possess it.

Steve Farrell: The first Colt repeating pistols in this territory, Sheriff. The finest guns ever made. Here's law and order in six-finger doses. Yes, sir, easy to load and as durable as your mother-in-law.

Squaw: White man crazy.

Redrock sheriff: A pistol don't make a man. It's the gent before the gun that counts.

Factual error: This Warner film concerns a pair of post-Mexican War, new-style percussion revolvers stolen from a travelling arms dealer and used in a crime spree. The criminal was unbeatable because of the overwhelming firepower of the guns compared to the single-shot handguns used by everyone else in the film. The title guns used throughout the film were a pair of Colt Dragoon revolvers, in caliber .44. Colt didn't manufacture a .45 revolver until the metallic cartridge era, in 1873.
