John Wayne liked casting himself against tall actors, so when the 6'7" James Arness became unavailable, he helped cast Rock Hudson, who was at least as tall as he. He also wanted someone to play bridge with, and knew that Hudson was a good bridge player. See more »

There's somethin' crawlin' in these beans!

I first saw this movie when I was 11 or 12 with the neighborhood kids and we all loved it!! I remember the whole crowd of us cheering John Wayne on.
And as young girls we also thought Roman Gabriel was to die for!! LOL It taught us the evils of prejudice, the sadness and happiness of unrequited love similar to Romeo and Julliette (Blue Boy and the Col.s daughter). It even taught us the futility of war. Maybe not all those things in the obvious sense but as kids it made us feel sad about war, disgusted at the prejudice and fall in love with the handsome native American, Blue Boy.
Great Movie, great actions, lots of good things to enjoy just for pure entertainment value!!!
