Did You Know?

Edit
Trivia Director Fritz Lang had originally planned to call this film "Chuck-a-Luck". However, studio head Howard Hughes insisted that its name be changed to "Rancho Notorious", and when Lang asked why, he was told that it was because non-Americans (Europeans) wouldn't understand what "Chuck-a-Luck" (a gambling game commonly played in saloons in the Southwest) meant. Lang replied, "Well, it's a good thing that they all know what 'Rancho Notorious' (which has nothing to do with anything in the film) means!" See more »
Goofs Ken Darby is given screen credit for the music and lyrics to "Gypsy Davey". In reality, "Gypsy Davey" is a folk song from the Scottish/Irish tradition that dates back to the 18th century. See more »
