I'm sure some of y'all older folks seen this one. I thought it was a pretty cool story. Based on what I saw at the end this happened or something like it, I think.

That movie put me in mind of a real beef hustle - where the cattle Hampton rustled came from sort of! The huge King ranch in Texas regularly smuggled beef and munitions to the Confederacy in exchange for cotton, which Captain Richard King sold in Europe. I think there's pieces of that in Alvarez Kelly, too!
