The production team for this film assembled the largest herd of Texas longhorns in nearly 30 years. It was also the last cattle drive of its kind in history. Cast members such as Ernest Torrence
, Noah Beery
and Jack Holt
were recruited as nighthawks to watch over the cattle, which were known for being fierce and temperamental, and even the slightest rustle could send them into a panic. See more
