Trivia:
Actress Jeanne Crain was scheduled to play Clementine. Studio head Darryl F. Zanuck ruled against her, writing in a memo that the part was so small, Crain fans might be disappointed by not seeing her in more scenes. That's how contract player Cathy Downs got the part instead.See more »
Goofs:
Continuity: When Wyatt is playing poker, Chihuahua puts her leg up on a chair showing her dark stockings. A few minutes later, when Wyatt catches her signaling the gambler, he pulls her outside and pushes her in a horse-trough and she's no longer wearing stockings.See more »
Quotes:
[At his brother's grave]
Wyatt Earp:1864, 1882. 18 years. You didn't get much of a chance did you James? I wrote to Pa and Cory Sue. They're gonna be all busted up over it. Cory Sue's young, but Pa. I guess he'll never get over it. I'll be comin' out to see you regular James. So will Morg and Virg. I'm gonna be around here for a while. Can't tell. Maybe when we leave this country young kids like you will be able to grow up and live safe.

Casts such a spell., 30 April 2006
Author: bungalow16 from Austin, TX

I find this film entrancing. Smoke rising. The desert at night. Clouds at midnight. This new (to us) version is quieter, less score. I would love to be out there on that porch, tilting my chair back, waiting for the stage to come in. Beautiful transfer on the DVD, I found myself struck, moved by frame after frame. The sound of a single horse across monument valley, the fury of Doc Holiday's stage coach tearing through the landscape. A lamp-lit bar and a woman moaning under the knife, like a dying ember. Three figures stepping out like giants into the landscape. Robert Ryan seated in the wind and dust at the end of the Wild Bunch, it all comes from here. There is so much to learn from this film.
