Trivia

John Wayne told an interviewer he gave up caring about the movie halfway through filming when he learned that John Ford was dying of cancer.
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".
