Good program. Glad someone finally made a movie about the hero’s and did not glorify the serial killing robbers.

They didn’t make Ma Ferguson out nearly bad enough though...

While she ran the state, a lot of folks were sure her crooked husband who was governor of Texas as well before her was pulling the strings.

And like it alluded too in the movie she was pardoning criminals left and right and disbanded the rangers as she thought they werenít relevant in modern times.

While not our independence or Wild West history it was a very interesting time in Texas

Thanks. I did some looking around after I posted that and figured It had something to do with the number of people she was pardoning, and the rumors about them profiting from said pardons.

So I really enjoyed this movie. Even at over two hours it moved quickly and the shootout scene was intense. And as always Woody Harrelson was fantastic.

Without a doubt Harrelson and Costner were the perfect actors for the roles. I could see a Ranger from those times doing exactly what happen in the beer joint scene.

I assume y'all watched this on some alternative venue like Hulu or Netflix ? Is it available on DVD so I can watch it on a dumb tv out in the sticks where they bring my internet in a horse drawn wagon ?

She was turning criminals out left and right and The Rangers “wouldn’t mind her”....there is now a state law that prohibits The Rangers from ever being disbanded again. The movie was very friendly to her.

I’ve always been told the Eastham Warden is the man who was responsible for bringing Hamer and Gault back to service again, not her.

The movie is pretty close to historically accurate also (to the best of what I’ve read and been taught). The filmmakers consulted with The Rangers and The Ranger Musuem in Waco.

I wish we could get the B and C car from the Nevada Casino in the Museum....it’s current value is between 5-10 million dollars

We have the Colt r80 machine gun and it’s value is well over 90k...just as a gun not counting is B and C heritage

Pretty good show, they changed a few things up a bit, but that was obviously done to make the show more interesting. But for the most part, it seems very accurate.

Good flick

They did mess up on Sheriff Jordan's accent a bit. But that's typical for Hollywood. Sheriff Jordan was a good friend of my grandfather who was born, raised and lived his entire life in Bienville Parish. I remember as a kid hearing stores of him going with Sheriff Jordan to transport prisoners to places like California and New York.

The group swore to never talk about the incident, just do their job however grim it was. Hamer was notorious for not talking to the press or anyone about his work.

Yea, having grown up in Shreveport/Bossier I thought he sounded more south Louisiana vs. north Louisiana.

Good flick, one thing stands out to me. There were ignorant people even back then same as today that had disregard for our law enforcement. There were a lot of people who idolized criminal murderers of our public servants.
