Trivia

According to myth, Dennis Hopper required 85 retakes for one scene, causing director Henry Hathaway to yell at him, "You'll never work in this town again!" and that it was ten years before Hopper obtained another major role. Don Murray, however, has stated that this never occurred, and in fact, Hopper worked steadily through the 1960s, including twice more with Hathaway: The Sons of Katie Elder (1965) and True Grit (1969).

Some promising scenes but cloying love interest
27 January 2007 | by MarlburianSee all my reviews

I found this not bad at all, and was a little surprised that it was made in 1958; somehow it had a late sixties' feel to it. The strong point was R G Armstrong's patriarchal father with a curious sense of justice; having caught up with the fugitive Murray, he gives him a horse to replace the one his son had shot and then gives him a headstart before renewing the chase. The worst part was the cloying, instant romance between Murray and tomboy Varsi.

Incidentally, previous commentator edk313 reckons he spotted "Jack Elam's inimitable face with a look of horror on it because he is a cowboy in the path of the stampede! This is his only role in the film and he is not credited. I'd love to know the story on that scene." In the version I've just seen on British TV I didn't spot Elam, the only casualty of the stampede being one of Armstrong's sons. But it was quite common for film-makers of this period to borrow footage from another film for a battle or similar "big" scene; however, the footage of the pony stampede in FHTT does look as it was shot as part of the film.
