Huston also provided an uncredited bit part to socialite Marietta Tree, who had been a long-time lover. Tree, born Mary Endicott Peabody, who hailed from one of New England's oldest families, was also the lover of two-time Democratic presidential candidate Adlai Stevenson. Soon after this film's release, she worked in the Kennedy Administration, representing the U.S. on the United Nations Commission on Human Rights. See more »
When Guido is herding the horses down canyon with his fixed-wing plane, there are aerial shots of the horses galloping down a two-track. The takes are shot directly behind the horses and the plane is flying at the same rate of speed as the horses. A fixed wing aircraft couldn't fly slow enough to match slower galloping horses.

This is a one of a kind film experience which has taken on even more depth with our hindsight into the lives of its creators. Written by Monroe's then husband, Arthur Miller, and produced as their marriage was ending, it provides Monroe with the role of her life. There are many great moments in the film, the most famous being her tirade against the cruelty and dishonesty of the men in her life. You will never forget her cries of "Murderers!" , even more horrifying now, given the suspicions surrounding her death. But for me the most unforgettable moment takes place in the cab of the truck when Eli Wallach's character offers to save the lives of some horses if she will give up the man she is with and live with him. The look on her face changes from hope to horror as she realizes he's bartering the horses' lives for hers: "You have to GET something in order to act human?!" she spits out at him. It's a great script, cast perfectly, and speaks as sadly and as eloquently to us now as it did forty years ago.
