In subsequent shots there is no sign of any wound. Additionally, many shots in the scene show lunges by the bull that would have disemboweled the horse had the horns been real. See more »
I've been dreaming every night about them Mexican gals for the last week. I wouldn't take $400 for what I dreamed last night.
You've been talking in your sleep, too. I wish you would think of something else to dream about for a change.
I'll tell you what you do. You think of something better to dream about... I'll dream about it.

Delmer Daves was very successful with this film, about how a young hotel clerk (Lemmon) becomes a cowboy, but most of all how he becomes a man. Daves takes us on journey, driving a cattle herd from Mexico to finally place them on the Santa Fe train bound for Chicago, and he manages to keep us interested every moment. There is a snake, an Indian attack, wild horses, a cattle stampede, cowboys fighting...What is impressive is the efficiency with which Glenn Ford commands the operation, no time is lost, everything must be done to deliver the herd with as few losses as possible. Lemmon starts becoming like Ford, obsessed about his task, when they both learn something about human values.
