Great piece of western history.
This is an excellent, albeit little known, video of an incredible historical character. An honest lawman during this time was very rare, and Tilghman many have been the only one. I am a bit biased, since I am a distant relative, but I have read the biographies of the man, and the video is pretty accurate.

Old West, New World..... great movie
After reading the negative reviews of this movie I was amazed. I was just curious what faults could be found. I love this movie. The man Bill Tiglhman is lesser known than some of the other lawman of the day, but his story is important. And the film also examines a time in history that is shamefully over-looked. It's that cross-over period between the old west and the modern world. The negative reviews of this movie mostly talk about the pace of the movie. As if to say there wasn't enough shoot'em up stuff or something. I think the action is great, the way it's styled is near perfect, the acting is top notch, etc. But most importantly, the story is what's worth knowing. It takes a lot of effort to pack that much information and detail into a movie, and keep it entertaining.
There are a handful of movies that tell the tale of us as a society losing whats important. The few that come to mind are: Lonely Are The Brave, The Last Picture Show, Geronimo, and American Graffiti, and maybe even Forrest Gump. It seems we reach a point every so-many years that we have to leave what was good behind, in the name of progress. Yet as a society we become more and more despondent as we "progress". It's important to have these reminders in case we ever get the balls to be free again. Or at least to remind people that we did indeed used to be a freer world. Many men like Bill Tiglhman fought to keep it that way, and most of those men have been forgotten. A way of life has nearly been forgotten. Sometimes you need inspiration to go your own way in the modern world. This movie does that for me.Read full review

This movie reinforces many values that were once the pillars of "True Grit" in American life. God, Country, Family and the independent way of life that is so valued in "The Real America Way" as not for glitz and greed that consumes our nation today. Life is brutual and unkind, but "Sam" the "Man" leaves it all on the screen, as for of us that "know" his name, evil never wins but causes pain in a real American Hero, Tiglhman.Some may not find it action packed enough, but realizing the subplots that are happening, and having a Western as it is, and should be. Elliott will be remembered and respected by many as an accomplished actor in this field and his personal life.

Sam Elliott - another great performance!
If you enjoy Sam Elliott's character acting, you will surely enjoy "YOU KNOW MY NAME." Mr. Elliott does a superb job of playing a retired lawman who is brought out of retirement to face yet another challange in his reputable career as a meaningful lawman. His association with his wife and two boys is very touching and I especially enjoyed the ending, which is a testimony to his acting ability. It is written in a way that is seldom seen today and surely brought tears to my eyes. Sam Elliott continues to be a wonderful character actor with the style and charisma simular to the great John Wayne. You won't be dissapointed with this one! by Alan K. Sept 2009
