DeMille became enraged at Goddard when the actress refused to do a stunt that required her to have fireballs thrown at her. DeMille was forced to use a stuntwoman who was burned. Five years later when the director was making "The Greatest Show on Earth," he reportedly had his revenge by turning down Goddard's acceptance of a key role and replacing her with Gloria Grahame.

I had heard that Howard Hawks wanted Gary Cooper to play the lead in red river, but Cooper didn't want to play a character that dark so he played in this instead. That would of been cool to see Cooper play John Wayne's part in Red River. This movie has a great cast like Cooper, Ward Bond, Boris Karloff and directed by Cecil B. DeMille. This movie has been compared to Northwest Passage but i think this one is better. Cooper is good as usual and so is the rest of the cast.
