The anti-racism subtext was written into the script in response to ongoing criticism of John Wayne's infamous May 1971 interview with Playboy magazine. However, the only African-American in the cast, Vance Davis, is listed in the credits as "Negro". See more »
One thing I hate more than a Commanche is half of one.
His name is Lightfoot. And I wouldn't call him, 'Breed' to his face if I was you... not if you want to reach maturity.

(6/10) Not a great film, but is underrated simply for the fact that this is labeled by many as one of Wayne's weaker westerns in the latter stages of his career. Duke has a great supporting cast around him highlighted by Neville Brand as Indian tracker Ben Lightfoot, and villain George Kennedy. The Fink couple and writing team famous for penning Dirty Harry lacked originality for bringing up the same plot devices used in the Duke western Big Jake they wrote two years prior (Wayne choosing a gun slinging career over his children and Wayne teaming up with an Indian tracker). However I can forgive them since both areas were improved in this go around. Although some of their writing, such as Kennedy's sudden change of heart when Billy Jo was sick, was pretty weak.
