There is literally only one song in this entire movie...and well you can be the judge of it.
Gimme them facts or I'll blast ya!
This western movie is a re-working of Miguel de Cervantes y Saavedra's Don Quixote legend (The Ingenious Gentleman Don Quixote of La Mancha) transferred to an American western setting.
The age of Scandalous John aka John McCanless (Brian Keith) was seventy-nine years of age.
The character of Wendell played by John Ritter was a mute/non-speaking role.
Most of the picture was shot in the American state of New Mexico but a small amount of filming was also done in Old Tuscon, Arizona and on a railway in South Dakota.
The picture only received a minor and limited theatrical release when distributed in the USA in North America in 1971.
Not surprisingly this film is not available on Disney+ for some questionable content but you can rent it on amazon for $3.99 (at the time of posting).
