This was the first appearance of a character known as Sheriff July Johnson, played by George Kennedy. Larry McMurtry would use this name later in Lonesome Dove, with the sheriff this time played by Chris Cooper. See more »

You see, there things a man ought never do - spit in church, scratch his self in front of his ma, and pick his nose. Yes that's what my pa learned me and it stood me in good step.
I don't imagine your pa ever mentioned shooting people, and burning their house down, and stealing, and things like that?
Well, I'm talking about mannerly things Mr. Bishop. I ain't talking about making a living.

this movie has larry mcmurtry written all over it--as someone else has noted, three of the characters have names that later showed up in "lonesome dove", roscoe's last name is bookbinder, and larry mcmurtry is a bookseller and book fanatic, most of the film is set near the texas/mexico border, where lonesome dove is located, and dee and mace have a brotherly relationship much like call and gus (and don't forget "lonesome dove" began as a screenplay intended for james stewart and john wayne) and dee and mace talk about going to montana and starting a ranch......
larry mcmurtry doesn't get a screen credit here, but i'll betcha he had something to do with the screenplay......
anyone know for sure?
