Trivia

Mulcahey was a name used in Fort Apache but there was no Quinlin in a John Ford/ John Wayne film. There was however the name Quincannon used in a couple of Fords Trilogy. See more »

Goofs

There is no river border separating the United States from Canada in Montana. There is a Milk River in Montana that does flow into Canada, but the border is the 49th parallel, so the climactic scene could not have happened. See more »

Quotes

Sgt. Thomas Mulcahey: Indians riding Cavalry mounts? My grandaddy'd never forgive me!

The Perfect Movie
1 November 2000 | by (Manitoba, Canada) – See all my reviews

I'm biased: I love horses; I love movies with and about horses. I've seen horse-related movies good, bad, & indifferent. But there was nothing bad or indifferent about In Pursuit of Honor. The first time I watched it, I cried like a baby and swore I'd never watch it again, it devastated me so. But it draws me back again and again, and I've watched the movie probably a dozen times. To my mind, In Pursuit of Honor is one of that rare breed: the perfect movie. The writing, filming, and acting all combine to create the kind of movie that, like a good book, you want to experience over and over again. And if nothing else, it showed me that Don Johnson is not the shallow, pretty face I'd always considered him; he gives a wonderfully restrained performance, as does Craig Sheffer. An entertaining, educational, historically accurate movie that my husband and I will enjoy at least another dozen times.
