According to Marshall Terrill's biography of Steve McQueen: "The closest McQueen ever got to a bull was one called Docile Sunshine, who was fun, playful, and even kid-friendly. McQueen was not allowed to get near Evil Sunshine, who was the meanest, craziest, bull on the planet." As a prank between shots, McQueen thought it would be funny to release Evil Sunshine into the bull ring. People climbed over each other to get out. The bull destroyed an expensive 35mm camera.

Joe Don Baker and Sam Peckinpah reportedly did not get along while filming. Baker had this to say on Peckinpah:

"I didn't care for Peckinpah at all. He was one of those little guys who tries to bully big guys and he almost got his ass whipped for trying to do it to me. Every time I was going to throttle Peckinpah, Steve McQueen would come over and calm me down like a brother would."
