"GALLOPING THRILLS! A mighty adventure when America's destiny rode in the saddle bags of the...PONY EXPRESS"


  • Director: Jerry Hopper
  • Genre: Western, Action & Adventure, Classics,
  • Studio: Nat Holt Productions
  • Subtitled | Duration: 120 Mins

Charlton Heston, always cast in roles where he can lead with his chin, is fuelled by purposeful action, decency and high moral fibre in a western which has all the expected shorthand of the genre. The lightweight plot revolves around the adventures of Heston, as Buffalo Bill Cody, and Forrest Tucker, as Wild Bill Hickok, and the opening of mail routes to California. Made during the final years of the B-western (when they were still being produced in batches), this is a lumpy stew of lean crackerjack action and rather earnest, talky stretches.
