Trivia Charlton Heston played Andrew Jackson a second time in The Buccaneer (1958). See more »
Goofs Rachel talks about Andrew building her a home "with six columns" and we see the house, named The Hermitage. The house had three main iterations. The first was a simple New England style two-story wood frame home. That was later remodeled with the addition of wings and a wide veranda. The iconic image we have today (and how it still looks) was the third remodeling - but it was done after Rachel's death. Rachel may have involved in the plans for the renovations, but she didn't live to see the finished product. See more »

Quotes Rachel Donaldson Robards Jackson: [to Andrew who is planning to duel with Charles Dickinson the following morning] Andrew, if I'm to be the cause of all your quarrels for the rest of your life, then you give me no choice. I must leave you! I will not let you be killed because of me, nor will I let you take another man's life. I must leave!
President Andrew Jackson: You'd leave me now?
Rachel Donaldson Robards Jackson: No! No! Oh Andrew, please, please don't do this! If Mr. Dickinson's bullet kills you, it kills me too! Let him say what he will about me!
President Andrew Jackson: No man can say what he will about my wife! Rachel, I've failed you a great many times and a great many ways and I hope you'll forgive me. But I couldn't expect you to forgive me if I lived without honor!
