Editorial Reviews

Striking outdoor locations highlight Frank Gruber's story, which details the founding of the Pony Express and how it prevented California from becoming an independent republic. Ruthless killers (Henry Brandon, Stuart Randall) trying to incite a rebellion against the United States, employ devious schemes to prevent Buffalo Bill Cody (Charlton Heston) and Wild Bill Hickok (Forrest Tucker) from getting the Pony Express started. Rhonda Fleming and Michael Moore play siblings who are loyal Californians, violently opposed to the Pony Express and statehood. Directed by Jerry Hopper (The Secret of the Incas).

Customer Reviews

Great movie. charlton heston is my favorite actor.
john tsantis
A loose remake of the 1924/25 silent film of the same name, Hopper's movie suffers from being overlong and for spending too much time with the Hastings sub-plot.
Spike Owen
Charlton Heston was superb in the role he played and it was very exciting.

I remember watching this movie on television on Saturdays and Sundays when I was growing up. Now, it's finally coming out on DVD. It's always a pleasure to watch the legendary actor (Ben Hur, The Big Country, Planet of the Apes, The Ten Commandments) Charlton Heston at work. While it might not be historically accurate, this movie does pay tribute to those early days of the Pony Express and the hardships that the riders encountered. Buffalo Bill (played by Charlton Heston) and Wild Bill Hickok (Forrest Tucker) join forces to establish a mail route that can get mail from St. Joseph, Missouri, to Sacramento, California, in ten days. Along the way they must battle bad weather, hostile Indians and cunning outlaws intent on robbing the mail and shutting down the entire mail delivery operation. The supporting cast (Forrest Tucker, Rhonda Fleming, Jan Sterling) are excellent and help make this movie exciting, enjoyable and fun to watch.

Charlton Heston stars as Buffalo Bill, who along with partner Wild Bill Hickock, played by Forrest Tucker, is attempting to set up the Pony Express to help connect California with the rest of the country. Beautiful Rhonda Fleming and her brother are part of a group trying to prevent that from happening, wanting California to go it alone, rather than be part of the Union. Not only must Chuck do battle with them, but there are also the Indians to consider, not to mention the nagging presence of Jan Sterling, a tomboy in love with him. Pony Express is not short on action and that is its saving grace. The plot and dialogue are routine, the direction uninspired, and the characters comes across as sketches. The beauty of Rhonda Fleming and the technicolor scenery helps to make this acceptable viewing. There could be a great movie made about the Pony Express. This just isn't it.

What a fun exciting western with Heston playing Buffalo Bill Cody and Forest Tucker as Wild Bill Hickock. Great technicolor cinematography that has many well composed John Ford type shots make this movie beautiful to look at. The movie dramatizes the begining of the pony express with a California leaving the US subplot..I don't know how accurate the story is, but I was entertained.

Jan Sterling steals the movie as a lovesick tomboy..................what a performance!!

Heston is really good in this movie.................he actually plays his part with some humour..something he did not do in a lot of his roles..He shows he can really handle a horse in this movie.....in fact my 2 favorite Heston roles are this one and the role of the tough ranch foreman in The Big Country. If you like high quality westerns, this is a must have.

Although the characters of Buffalo Bill Cody and Wild Bill Hickox are not exactly historically correct, this old western is fun to watch. The two Bills are up against a crew of politicians/civilians who want to make California independent from the United States. Buffalo Bill and Wild Bill are a threat to their plans with their own plan to connect Sacramento with the East Coast. Fun action and adventure, but not one of Heston's best.

The lightweight plot revolves around the adventures of Buffalo Bill Cody(Charlton Heston)and Wild Bill Hickok(Forrest Tucker)as they get involved in the opening up of the mail routes between California and the rest of the Union.They must also try to frustrate the plans of the devious Rance Hastings (Michael Moore )to split California from the rest of the Union.
The action scenes are splendidly well done and there are a lot of them but the script ,by Charles Marquis Warren ,is too talky and frankly rather dull .However there is a lot to enjoy -some crisp colour photography ,a raft of lively peformances from the leads who include Rhonda Fleming and Jan Sterling as the women in our heroes' lives and a nice study in icy villainy from Henry Brandon

The result is a good Western that is perfectly enjoyable but which falls short of the very highest standards owing to a routine storyline and verbiose script

Format: VHS Tape
The story of the Pony Express riders and the obstacles they faced is the story here. This picture was Charlton Heston's second western and in spite of good casting, some fine action scenes and beautiful color, the film was okay but nothing special. The script is sprinkled with several light moments that clash with the more serious plots of Indian uprisings and sinister white men who don't want the express riders to succeed and unite the young country from coast to coast. There is good chemistry between Heston and Forrest Tucker but Heston's romance, such as it is, with Rhonda Fleming is corny. Henry Brandon, Pat Hogan and Richard Shannon are good in minor plot roles.

Story ping pongs back and forth with standard action. Once again if Charlton Heston was not in this you could not watch it with any credibility.
