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).

Goofs

Indians took both saddle horses, but later Tod rides into Magdalena or Socorro, with Carmody's horse. See more »

Quotes

Tod Lohman: Just let me take care of myself because I don't want anybody mixing into my trouble.
Amos Bradley: Looks like I might be mixed in anyway.

Intelligent entertainment - worth seeing more than once!
23 September 2009 | by subhashSee all my reviews

I switched on the TV today and accidentally caught this movie (having missed the first 8 mins) on (Freeview) FilmFour (UK) digital TV channel.

The "info" panel said it was first released in 1958 and directed by Henry Hathaway - a name I recognised from all those movie history books.

All the other reviewers have told all you need to know about the plot. There are no cardboard villains here. One feels empathy for the "bad" guys too!

If you enjoy watching intelligent movies that your parents (or your grandparents) may have enjoyed watching on the big screen in their youth then this is a movie you should try to catch!

Most of Hollywood movies of 90s and '00s seem such forgettable dreck compared with this movie!
