Time Out says

Likeable attempt to show what life was really like in the old West (ironically based on reminiscences by the notoriously mendacious Frank Harris), with Lemmon as the hotel clerk who joins a 2,000 mile cattle drive from Chicago to the Rio Grande in the 1870s. The episodic narrative, taking in an Indian attack, a Mexican fiesta and a cattle stampede, is more romantic than realistic; but it remains consistently atmospheric and enjoyable, with the striking use of landscape characteristic of Daves.
