This film is basically a remake of Gunga Din (1939) set in the American "Wild West". After filming was completed, the producers discovered they needed to secure the rights to the original story. They were forced to pay a large fee to the copyright owners before the film could be released. See more »
The shown lever-action arms carried by the soldiers were not issued to US units. 1873 saw the initial issuance of trapdoor Springfields, a breech-loading single shot rifle or carbine using a .45 caliber metallic cartridge - the same arms carried by Custers's troopers at Little Bighorn. See more »
I have not seen this picture in over 30 years, I think it is one of the best comedies put into a motion picture. I would like to buy it on VHS, but I feel that the motion picture of arts and science have lost it or it was not preserved
