According to myth, Dennis Hopper required 85 retakes for one scene, causing director Henry Hathaway to yell at him, "You'll never work in this town again!" and that it was ten years before Hopper obtained another major role. Don Murray recently confirmed that this never occurred, and in fact, Hopper worked steadily through the 1960s, including twice more with Hathaway: "The Sons of Katie Elder" in 1965 and "True Grit" in 1969.

The story deals with the pursuit of a young man by a family of Cattlemen in the Southwest. There's plenty of action and the story moves along at a quick pace, however it cannot compare to the novel(The Hell Bent Kid)by Charles O. Locke. For some reason Hollywood always seems to shoot for the happy ending, whereas the conclusion in the book was gut-wrenching. Not shown on TV very often anymore, but is available on VHS if you look hard enough, and it is worth the effort.
