Marlon Brando cast and Hand picked Mary for this role. She had worked with him in a previous movie called 'Viva Zapata!". Mr. Brando would call her "Mama" behind the scenes and throughout the filming of this picture. See more »

I don't know, Dad. You may not want me around too long. You may be retired from robbin' banks, Dad; but I'm still in business.

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.
