I surely hope this is not another Western movie that destroys the history of the West by utilizing people who tend to not know nothing about. Clothing and props. I’ve seen many movies that use 20th century hats jackets and saddles all that shows is a low budget crappy rendition of what the West was in the 1800s. There’s nothing more depressing than watching a man get off a horse in the 1800s on a saddle from the 1900s and the 2000s. There’s something so unprofessional to see actors wearing hats and shapes on hats that did not exist in the 1800s I most likely will be seeing this movie and picking up on every flaw. No excuses in our modern age and time any year any perio reproduced for these motion pictures they don’t all have to be similar to spaghetti Westerns
