In this fictional Western adventure about dime novels hero-turned-Wild West show impresario Hugh Cardiff, from the pen of Brian ("Death Wish") Garfield, Sam Elliott is the legendary sharpshooter, Indian fighter and buffalo hunter and Pat Hingle is Bob Halburton, the enterprising writer who made Cardiff a household name around the turn of the century. The film, initially shown in two two-hour segments and later edited down to a single-part three hour movie, was the first of two made for showing on the "Golden Circle" network of independent stations -- an ersatz group of stations assembled by Metromedia (which also produced the film) in the mold of the Operation Prime Time affiliations.
