Trivia:
For her first scene, Gail Russell had to be covered in mud and help pull the wagon through the mud pit. Although the crew was worried about her, she was a real trooper and spent six hours covered in mud and cold from the water. The director didn't want her to look like she had had mud applied by the make-up artists. To everyone's surprise, she did a perfect nose fall into the mud hole and came up very realistic.See more »

Outstanding western, Scott and Marvin are great., 18 August 2005
Author: tmwest from S. Paulo, Brazil

Seven Men is a film much more about three men (Scott, Marvin, and Walter Reed) and a woman (Gail Russel), than about the seven men that have to be killed because in a shootout during a robbery they killed Scott's wife. Greer (Walter Reed) is apparently a weak man, he is described by Marvin as half a man, and Scott in a dialog with Greer's wife Annie (Russell), is doubtful of her love for Greer. Marvin is a man that lives by a Darwinian code, survival of the fittest, but with no morals attached. He is attracted to Annie, but knows that to him she is unreachable. Scott ranks well in Marvin's code, Marvin respects him because he is fit to survive, but Scott does not do well in his own code. The problem is that when in the past he was not reelected sheriff, he was too proud to take a job as a deputy. His wife had to become the provider by taking a job at Wells Fargo, where she was killed. Scott cannot forgive himself for that. Finding a job was also a problem for Greer, that is why he is going on a wagon to California. Lee Marvin is a great villain and Gail Russel quite a presence. This is a western that catches you off guard, a story that might be conventional, but presented in a unique, personal way.
