Director George Sherman was a friend of John Wayne dating back to their days in the 1930s making westerns at Republic Pictures. By the time of this film, however, Sherman was aging and not in the best of health, and had a difficult time shooting in the wilds of Mexico, where much of the movie was filmed. On the days when Sherman was unable to shoot because of his health conditions, Wayne took over direction, but when the film was completed he insisted that Sherman alone be credited as director.

He is not dead...NOT HARDLY!! This movie was great. I can't believe I had never seen it. I loved the way he put his kids in place every time they got out of line. Especially that guy with the mustache (Wayne's real life son). I have seldom seen movies where there is so much suspense. The mean man with the blanket was super good also at being a MEAN AND BAD GUY!!!! John Wayne is the best cowboy ever. He looked and acted tough and was apparently TOUGH in real life. I wish Maureen O'Hara would have been in this movie more. She is so good looking. John Wayne was so fearless. I loved the way he bled RED PAINT. Back then, the blood looked like RED PAINT. Haha.
I give this movie a perfect 10!
