Stuntman Bill Williams was killed performing a stunt with a colleague during this shoot. The stunt called for Williams and another stuntman to guide a horse-drawn wagon toward a cliff. As the horses separated, both men were supposed to jump clear as the wagon continued over the cliff. Williams didn't manage to jump clear in time and died during the fall. See more »

While others find this glorious Western flawed, I only see one of the most comical motion pictures of all time. Most of the lead actors have never done comedy so well; each is hilarious, a credit to the writing. The music is superb and the (uncredited) voice of the great John Dehner narrating a frankly preposterous fictional set of clashes as though they were embarrassing history is a triumph. With such memorable lines as "Not on my bear rug!" to "... and I hate the Indians!" to a simple "Oh dear" to "...and a good Republican", this is a classic to treasure and watch again and again.
