Trivia

Marlon Brando's first cut of the film was allegedly five hours long. He was reportedly unhappy with the final product, despite its box-office success. "Now, it's a good picture for them [Paramount]," he said upon its release, "but it's not the picture I made . . . now the characters in the film are black-and-white, not gray-and-human as I planned them."

Goofs

The glass tankards that the party-goers drink from in the fiesta (c.56 minutes) are of a design first produced around the 1920s. See more »

Quotes

Bob: What about Longworth?
Rio: Nothin' about him. In the mornin' I'll kill him and then we'll rob that bank.

One of the best westerns ever made
17 August 2007 | by (Southern California) – See all my reviews

Although this movie probably suffered as a result of cost overruns/studio shenanigans, I would certainly put it in my top 20 westerns, probably knocking at the top 10. This is the only western I've ever seen that takes place in Monterey. I would *JUMP* at the chance to see Brando's 5 hour version. Ben Johnson and Slim Pickens were excellent as was the whole cast. When Brando gets fired up; watch out !

Brando's first effort as a director was excellent. Too bad he lost his taste for it; I don't think we got as much mileage out of his fine talent as we should have in later years.
